The little Nice of the Alps

Nicknamed the little Nice of the Alps because of its particularly mild and sunny climate, the town of Embrun, a former archdiocese and military fortified town, dominates the Durance valley from the top of a cliff.

The Provençal-looking old town boasts a wonderful heritage: a network of narrow streets lined with colourful houses, pretty squares with fountains, arched passageways and walls decorated with sundials.

The must-see Notre-Dame-du-Réal cathedral dating from the 12th and 13th centuries is one of the most important religious monuments in the French Alps. Among its features are a magnificent portal guarded by two statues of lions, a Gothic rose window, a marble high altar, a great organ and a remarkable treasure of ancient sacerdotal garments, manuscripts and pieces of silverware.

Not far from the cathedral stands Brune tower, the former keep of the archbishop's palace dating from the 12th century that now houses a space dedicated to Écrins National Park.

To enjoy a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside, visitors should head to the garden of the archbishop's palace (Archevêché) near the cathedral. From the viewpoint indicators there are stunning views over the Durance valley with the peaks of the Embrunais mountains towering above.

Two kilometres from the town centre is Embrun lake where you can enjoy a whole host of water-based activities, including swimming (supervised in July and August), kayaking, sailing and fishing.

In addition to this animated event, a horse and cattle fair takes place every second Saturday in October.

Tourist site
A gem of traditional popular art

In the heart of the Champsaur region, in the peaceful hamlet of L'Aubérie in the village of Bénévent-et-Charbillac, stands the adorable and original Saint-Grégoire chapel, or chapel of the Pétètes (pétète means doll in the local language). Built in the middle of the 18th century by Jacques Pascal, a builder-carpenter living in the hamlet, it is unusual because it is decorated with Naive statues representing saints. It is a gem of traditional popular art and is today a listed historic monument.

Tourist site
A legendary pass in the Tour de France cycling race

The legendary Izoard pass (Col d'Izoard), made famous by the Tour de France, reaches 2,361 metres at its peak. Open from June to November, Izoard pass marks the transition between the Briançonnais and Queyras regions. Near the pass on the Queyras side, don't miss the unusual, lunar-like scenery of the famous Casse Déserte wilderness.

Tourist site
The chief town of the Ubaye valley

Barcelonnette, the chief town of the Ubaye valley, is situated at an altitude of 1,135 metres and possesses both typical southern French and mountain charm. Place Manuel sits in the heart of the historic centre bordered by pretty, colourful façades. Dominated by the 15th-century Cardinalis tower, this hub of local activity also features a number of outdoor cafés and restaurants. A network of pedestrian streets lined with shops surrounds the square.

Fans of unusual architecture should make a point of admiring the Mexican villas on Avenue de la Libération. Of Italian, Tyrolean and Baroque inspiration, these luxury residences, most of which are listed historic monuments, were built between 1880 and 1930 by Barcelonnets who had made their fortune in Mexico. One of them, Villa La Sapinière, is open to the public and houses the Musée de la Vallée, a museum devoted to the history and traditions of the Ubaye valley, as well as the Mercantour National Park visitor centre (Maison du Parc).

A very animated Latino-Mexican Festival takes over Barcelonnette for around 10 days every August and features a packed programme of concerts, processions and mariachis.

Tourist site
A magnificent listed village that has preserved much evidence of the agricultural and pastoral life of old

Perching at an altitude of 2,042 m in the heart of Queyras Regional Nature Park, the mountain village of Saint-Véran, designated one of the Most Beautiful Villages of France, is also the highest village in Europe. Enjoying a unique natural setting, this magnificent village has preserved a remarkable built heritage from its past that bears witness to the rural life of old.

Picturesque chalets with fustes (the fuste is the upper part of a chalet with walls made of stacked-up tree trunks, where harvested forage was dried and stored over winter), a listed church and old houses topped with larch shingle or lauze roofs characterise the different hamlets of Saint-Véran. Walking around you will also discover charming wooden fountains, chapels, sundials, wayside crosses, communal ovens and an old fire engine.

Worth visiting: La Vieille Maison Traditionnelle (traditional old house) and Soum museum, located in the oldest house in Saint-Véran.

In winter, the village of Saint-Véran turns into a pleasant winter sports resort, ideal for a family holiday.

Tourist site
Popular with hikers and climbers, this mountain massif is home to a very rich flora and fauna

Straddling the Isère and Hautes-Alpes départements, Écrins National Park covers a central mountainous area of 91,800 hectares ranging in altitude from 800 to 4,102 metres. A favourite destination for nature lovers, this vast unspoiled territory is home to a very rich flora and fauna, including chamois, ibex, golden eagles, foxes, squirrels and marmots, and plants like edelweiss, blue thistle, genépi and gentian. The Écrins mountains are also a paradise for hikers, with no fewer than 740 km of waymarked footpaths, as well as for climbers: it's considered the second mountaineering site in France.

Not to be missed: the Park Visitor Centre (Maison du Parc) located in the Domaine de Charance estate on the outskirts of the town of Gap in the Hautes-Alpes, as well as the Maison du Parc in Le Bourg-d'Oisans, in the Isère, have a large amount of information about the mountains available for visitors and puts on regular exhibitions.

Situated in the Upper Verdon, the Allos valley is home to the picturesque village of Allos, and two ski resorts connected to the Espace Lumière ski area

Situated in the Southern Alps, at the foot of Allos pass in Mercantour National Park, the Allos valley is home to the picturesque village of Allos as well as two ski resorts that have been awarded the "Ski France" and "Famille Plus" labels: Seignus (Val d'Allos 1500) and La Foux d'Allos (Val d'Allos 1800). These two ski resorts form part of the Espace Lumière, a vast ski area linked to the resort of Pra-Loup that offers skiers and snowboarders 230 kilometres of downhill runs! The Allos valley also has a range of other winter activities available, including cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and ice skating.

The area is also popular for outdoor activities in the summer, when hiking, mountain biking, canyoning, horse riding, tennis and fishing take over. Lovers of alpine scenery absolutely must make the one-hour uphill walk to the wonderful Allos lake, Europe's largest natural high-altitude lake, situated at 2,228 metres above sea level.

Tourist site
A charming, picturesque medieval village enclosed by ramparts

Located 1,250 metres above sea level on the banks of the turbulent Verdon river, the medieval fortified village of Colmars is full of picturesque charm. Old Colmars is surrounded by ramparts and reached through one of three fortified gateways. It is a lovely place for a wander with streets lined with tall houses, Saint-Martin church, Provençal Gothic chapels, pretty fountains and a rampart walk.

Outside the walls, two late 17th-century forts watch over the village. One of them, the Fort de Savoie, is open to visitors in July and August.

In the second weekend of August, Colmars holds a particularly lively medieval festival that takes residents and tourists on a journey back to the time of the knights!
