The village of Cheggio (pronounced kejjio) is situated ± halfway up the main road from Villadossola to Lago di Antrona and opposite the Buddhist community of Bordo. Not to be confused with Cheggio at the top of the valley!

The village has its share of artists and several inhabitants are also closely allied to Bordo. The village can be reached via a short footpath from a bridge that can be accessed by car. This is also the easiest access point to Bordo. There is a car park near the bridge however please consider leaving your vehicle either at the main road or somewhere before the top car park as residents need this space.

Cheggio has a church which is presently inaccessible. If you plan to visit please keep in mind that the inhabitants like their privacy and don’t walk around taking pictures without asking permission.
