Route 1: Salentse – Bellevue – Mayens-de-Chamoson
Just below the Tourist Office, take rue du Pré de l’Oncle to reach the banks of the Salentse. At the second bridge, follow the paved road to Chou for approximately 100 metres and then continue along the Chemin du Favouay towards Ténèvre. At the fork, turn onto the Vieux Morthey lane. At the Vieux Valais crossroads, head up towards Les Bains until you reach the Chemin de Bellevue with its lovely view of the Ardève river. From Mayens-de-Chamoson, walk to the hamlet of Patiers and return to Tourbillon via the cross-country ski track. Take the paved road back to the resort.
