About Saint Rhemy
Saint-Rhémy-en-Bosses is a scattered Italian town of 337 inhabitants in the upper valley of the Gran San Bernardo, in the northwestern Valle d'Aosta. The function of the inhabited center closest to the hill on the southern Alpine side has characterized Saint-Rhémy over the centuries. The Latin toponym is Endracinum: in Roman times an important mansion stood on the spot to control the road, while the villa of the dominus Baucius stood not far from the artery, on the hill.

The Gran San Bernardo Valley is a side valley of the Aosta Valley. It takes its name from the Gran San Bernardo hill, where the valley ends. The Gran San Bernardo Valley detaches from the central valley of the Dora Baltea at the height of Aosta and climbs up to the Gran San Bernardo hill which separates it from the Valais. The Valpelline branches off from the Gran San Bernardo Valley at Gignod. Over the centuries the valley has been a great communication route with the nearby Valais.
The Valpelline is a side valley of Valle d'Aosta. It takes its name from one of the towns in the valley: Valpelline. It branches off from the Gran San Bernardo Valley at Gignod and climbs up to Colle Collon which separates it from Valais. It is located at the foot of the Grand Combin mountain, although the summit of the latter is entirely in Switzerland because the borderline passes south of the mountain.
The Col Ferret is a mountain pass that connects Orsières in Valais with Courmayeur in the Aosta Valley, on the border between Switzerland and Italy, geographically joining the Val Ferret Switzerland with the Italian Val Ferret. This second pass is of particular importance because it separates the Western Alps from the Central Alps, as well as the Mont Blanc Massif from the much lower Grand Golliaz group.
