About Us

Nestled among the mountains of Val Germanasca, Bardour initially started as a ski equipment rental in 2008. Founded by Patrick Peyrot, together with his sister Mara Peyrot and partner Marco Ferro, Bardour enjoys an enviable position, directly in front of the baby slopes. Its name has ancient origins and derives from the meadows on which it was built.

Bardour: una story of family and friendship

Mara and Patrick embody a passion for the mountains and love for their land. Coming from a family with deep roots in the local agricultural business, they have brought with them an authentic knowledge of the territory and a rare dedication to the mountains. Together with their partner Marco, they have created a place of meeting and sharing for the local community and mountain enthusiasts from around the world. Over the years, Bardour has transformed but has never lost its sense of belonging to its land. Reflecting the surrounding environment, Bardour is a place of authenticity, passion, and conviviality, the beating heart of the community, an oasis of warmth and affection among the towering peaks of the Cottian Alps.

Furthermore, Bardour also becomes the place to enjoy Patrick’s famous meat barbecues and participate in numerous events organized in the unique spaces of this location
