THINGS TO SEE AND DO NEARBY
Auris and its 9 traditional hamlets, including the hamlet of Cours, which houses a chapel, a rural museum and a few sun dials, signs of a lot of sunshine.
Located near the Roman road that linked Turin to Vienna via Suse, the Montgenèvre pass, Briançon, the Lautaret pass and Grenoble, Auris must have been served by a secondary road that was much sunnier than the main road that passes through Mont de Lans.
Dogs must be kept on a lead because of the presence of herding dogs at certain times of the year.
