An “eagle’s nest” village!
Located on the eastern side of the Massif du Grand Renaud, the village overlooks the Bourg d’Oisans plaine and offers an outstanding panoramic view of the Grandes Rousses, Romanche valley and Vénéon valley.
In summer, life is laid-back and friendly, with its little restaurant, festive events and traditions. Linked to Villard-Reymond by a track that overlooks the Romanche valley, visitors can enjoy a hike to explore two picturesque Oisans villages.
Untamed areas for enjoying the great outdoors
The untamed surrounding areas are perfect for a wide range of outdoor activities, especially hiking, with the Chemin des cascades, the family hike the Boucle des Croix and the more challenging Vallon du Rochail, which offers a superb panoramic view point over the Ecrins…
For cyclists, the road up to Villard Notre Dame is to be climbed at least once in a lifetime, suspended above a sheer drop and with dark tunnels, it leaves unforgettable memories.
In winter, icefall climbing can be enjoyed in the Cirque du Rochail and ski touring is also available from the village.
