St-Luc

St-Luc is situated on the sunny eastern slope of the Val d'Anniviers and enjoys majestic panoramic views. Spectacular scenery, attractive hikes and the ultra-modern astronomical observatory keep boredom at bay.
The Valais resort of St-Luc lies at an altitude of around 1600 metres on the sunny eastern slope of the Val d’Anniviers (Eifischtal) above the valley village of Vissoie. St-Luc still bears witness to the Val d’Anniviers’ past belle époque splendour. The simple guesthouse, built in 1883 on the northern edge of the village of St.-Luc, quickly developed into the Grand Hotel Bella Tola & St-Luc and was voted Historic Hotel of the Year in 2001.

The ultra-modern François-Xavier Bagnoud astronomical observatory in St-Luc brings the stars up close with its 60cm telescope, and the scale of the celestial bodies can be gauged along the planet theme trail, which climbs to 2500 metres.

SUMMER

The countryside surrounding St-Luc and Chandolin is a hikers’ and mountain bikers’ paradise. A botanical footpath leads past 24 orchid species as it winds its way to an 860-year-old giant larch tree. During the summer season, there is a children’s entertainment programme based on one of the Heidi tales.One of the hiking classics is the ascent from the mountain terminus Tignousa (2169m) above St.-Luc to the peak of Bella Tola (3025m) with its wonderful views over the Val d’Anniviers and far beyond. The exertion of the three-hour ascent is amply rewarded with panoramic views of the Weisshorn, Gabelhorn, Matterhorn and Dent Blanche peaks. Another popular hike leads up to the Hotel Weisshorn at 2337m, built at the beginning of the last century by English entrepreneurs and boasting expansive views across Val d'Anniviers to the Matterhorn.

WINTER

The sunny ski region of St-Luc/Chandolin with its superb views is the largest in the Val d'Anniviers. 75 kilometres of pistes are accessible by chairlifts, cogwheel railway and 13 ski lifts. There is a snow park and half-pipe and border cross facilities to keep snowboarders happy.

Highlights

  • Tignousa - from the mountain station (2169m) above St-Luc, a three-hour ascent leads to the Bella Tola Mountain (3025m) with panoramic views of the Weisshorn, Gabelhorn, Matterhorn and Dent Blanche.
  • Francois Xavier Bagnoud Observatory in St-Luc and the Planet Trail - ultra-modern observatory and a 6km planet trail from 2180m to 2500m.
  • Grain mills in St-Luc -dating back to the 18th century, these well-preserved historic mills for maize, barley, rye and wheat bring the valley’s agricultural cultural heritage to life. Operating from July to September.
  • The village of Chandolin - characteristic Valais timber houses in one of Switzerland’s highest all-year-round inhabited villages.
