Villard Reymond is a high mountain village that enjoys a bird’s eye view of Bourg d’Oisans. The commune begins at an altitude of 820 m on the right-hand bank of the fast flowing water of the Lignarre torrent, and extends right up to the top of the Grand Renaud at 2732 m.
With its Mairie at 1650 m, Villard Reymond is the highest village in Isère and the second highest village in France. Located opposite the Massif des Grandes Rousses and Alpe d’Huez, it enjoys a south facing position, offering a wonderful view over the Massif du Taillefer.
In the middle of a huge, closed valley and surrounded by alpine peaks, there are plenty of open-air activities on offer around Villard-Reymond, including hiking, mountaineering, and mountain biking routes that are easy or more challenging (around the Prégentil cliff).
Cyclists can reach the village on a picturesque road, admiring the characteristic environment of Villard Reymond, with its alpine forests, stony cliffs and pastureland.
In the winter, the area is completely unspolit, making it ideal for ski touring and snowshoeing.
