      Ovronnaz, petite station de villégiature et de cure, est située dans le Valais francophone, sur un plateau ensoleillé exposé plein sud. Ses piscines thermales (deux en plein air), dont la température varie entre 32 et 35 degrés, sont réputées. En été comme en hiver, les visiteurs apprécieront toujours autant la vue panoramique sur la vallée du Rhône.

      La région entourant Ovronnaz offre un réseau de beaux chemins de randonnée traversant vignobles, alpages verdoyants s’étageant jusqu’à la chaîne des Muverans et le lac de Fully. Un itinéraire facile de 19 km mènera les vététistes d’Ovronnaz au pittoresque village de Chiboz par un chemin forestier. Les plus ambitieux quant à eux préféreront l'ascension du Col de Forcle pour admirer une vue spectaculaire sur le Bas Valais. Cet itinéraire n’est pas sans difficulté, mais ils pourront ensuite détendre agréablement leurs muscles fatigués dans les bains bouillonnants du centre thermal.

      The small holiday and health resort of Ovronnaz is located in the French-speaking part of the Valais on a south-facing sun terrace. The three 32 to 35 degree Celsius thermal pools - two of which in the open air - are well-known. Summer holidaymakers and winter sports enthusiasts alike enjoy the panorama view of the Rhone Valley.

      The area around Ovronnaz offers a beautiful hiking network through vineyards, across green Alpine pastures all the way up to the mountains of the Muveran Mountain Range and Lake Fully. An easy, 19-kilometre-long mountain bike route runs from Ovronnaz via a forest trail to the picturesque village of Chiboz. Ambitious bike riders will love the loop up to the Col de Forcle with its spectacular view of the Lower Valais. The profile of the route is a little tough but after the bike tour the whirlpools at one of the thermal spas provide the perfect opportunity to pamper those muscles.

      Der kleine Ferien- und Kurort Ovronnaz liegt im französischsprachigen Wallis auf einer südexponierten Sonnenterrasse. Bekannt sind die drei 32 bis 35 Grad warmen Thermalbäder - zwei davon Freibäder. Sommergäste und Wintersportler geniessen gleichermassen die Panoramasicht auf das Rhonetal.

      Die Region rund um Ovronnaz bietet ein schönes Wanderwegnetz durch Rebberge, über grüne Alpwiesen bis hinauf in die Bergwelt der Muveran-Kette und zum Fully-See. Eine einfache, 19km lange Mountainbike-Route führt von Ovronnaz über einen Waldweg ins malerische Dörfchen Chiboz. Ambitioniertere Biker werden vom Loop hinauf zum Col de Forcle mit seinem spektakulären Ausblick aufs Unterwallis begeistert sein. Sein Profil ist nicht ganz ohne Anstrengungen zu bewältigen, doch nach der Biketour lassen sich die strapazierten Muskeln in den Sprudelbecken eines Thermalbades wunderbar entspannen.
