The High Land

Citadel of the metropolitan area with its mountain massif culminating at 3,143 meters, nature has carved, over the centuries, grandiose landscapes.

Villages, built on the rock or unfolding harmoniously in the valleys, offer the authenticity of a jealously guarded heritage.

In summer, it is a privileged site for an active outdoor holiday, famous for the beauty of its lakes, forests, summits, clues ...

In winter, it is a paradise for board sports with its ski resorts offering snow and sunshine ...

Quite simply, this haven of calm and freshness delivers a privileged site for a stay in the fresh air in a setting of magnificent mountains!
