Traditional architecture of Moranche

Le village de Moranche

Description

Basking on the sunny slopes of Montagny and only inhabited in summertime, this hamlet boasts quintessential traditional architecture found in villages of the highland pastures. Affording a beautiful view over the Vanoise and the 3 Vallées, it is also commonly referred to as a montagnette, i.e. a seasonal settlement above the permanent municipal villages. In times past, the villagers would take their livestock up there come spring, on their way to the mountain pasture, and stop off there again in the autumn on their way back down. Each family had a little house and barn where tomme cheese and butter were made. The animals were put out to graze together around the hamlets. Generally, the women went up with the children, while the men stayed in the village to work in the fields.
