Branson, a protected historical village, is a typical old winegrowers' village with narrow winding streets built into the hillside and nestled beneath a large nature reserve, Les Follatères, with lots of interesting walks. There are also plenty of family wine cellars where you can taste the local wines. Because it is such an old village, we have very close neighbours on one side.
Visit the websites Myswitzerland, Martigny and Valais to see the hundreds of things to do and see in the region! We are at the crossroads to Italy (Grand St Bernard tunnel and pass, and France : Forclaz Pass)
The map marker is a general indicator of the local area only.

We are retired , although we now seem busier than ever! Carol is Canadian and Patrick is English, but we have lived in Switzerland for 43 years. We have bought a camping van are are doing some long European trips and are interested in doing some "stopover exchanges" on our European travels. At the moment, we are looking for non-simultaneous exchanges somewhere warm in winter! We are toying with the idea of finding an exchange or rental in the Caribbean and Cost Rica this year or next.
