Saillon – where almonds and figs grow
In the home of Fendant wine, the bicycle paths are particularly attractive and the hiking trails lead you to unusual destinations. Saillon is anything but a provincial market village with old-fashioned charm, it is a busy, welcoming village which lives from the water, mountains and sun.
Saillon is an exceptionally well-kept historical village with Mediterranean flair. On its slopes, grapevines alternate with almond, olive and fig trees. The valley is full of asparagus fields, orchards and vegetable gardens. Once a refuge for Farinet, always on the run, today Saillon is a spa resort.
