Oswald Naudin, mayor of the village of Les Combes, visited the Vatican today to study the possible organization of the Pope’s stay in the Val d’Aosta.

The Holy See has yet to confirm the news. Italian news agencies said that the Pontiff’s holidays should take place between July 11 and July 23 or 28.

If he goes to Les Combes, the Holy Father would likely stay in the simple chalet where John Paul II stayed. The chalet offers a view of Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest peak.
