Are you coming to Champoluc on a special family ski holiday? Want to give your children something to remember the trip by or take home to their friends? Lucky for you there is plenty to interest the little ones around the town centre. Take a short walk (or ask Ski 2 for a minibus ride) about 5-10 minutes down the road from the Ski 2 office and you will find an array of toys and souvenirs.
Does your child like to snuggle up warm in slippers or a cosy blanket? Or perhaps they fancy a trinket for their bedroom or some fancy chocolate? They might like to check out L’Emporio, on the left on the way down the hill.
If you love to write postcards together, you’ll find a stationery shop a little further down on the same side, but watch out because it also sells lots of toys, children’s helmet covers, irresistible fluffy onesies and games galore.
Near the sometimes frozen tree (it thaws out towards the end of season) you might have fun perusing the selection at Livres et Musique, a book and music shop with the biggest selection of postcards in town, loads of kids’ picture books and other fun souvenirs.
Maybe, like I was, your child is a rock and gem aficionado? Ask in the office and we can direct you to a hidden gem (excuse the pun) of a shop. If you’re staying in La Rouja, rock delights are just a stone’s throw away!
Enjoy shopping with your little ones, but if you don’t find the right souvenirs this time, you could always go for an ice-cream at Dolce e Salato!
Thank you to all the staff at Cartoleria – Giornali – Giocattoli di Fassin Roberto, L’Emporio and Livres et Musique for being so welcoming and allowing us to take pictures of your beautiful shops.
