Map - Department Hautes-Alpes



Hautes-Alpes is, above all, incredibly beautiful views, breathtaking and overflowing sense of aesthetic satisfaction. Fresh alpine air and outdoor activities and sports. An interesting long history, despite the desire of the ancient people to get away to the mountains and thus to protect themselves from many fateful events. Also it is beautiful small towns that usually are scattered in the valleys between the mountains or along the rivers, or as if clinging to the rocks watching the world around.
 
The third highland town in Europe, the ski resort since 1939, the member of the Plus Beaux Villages de France Association (Beautiful Villages of France Association) ... All of this is a small but incredibly beautiful town of Hautes-Alpes - Saint-Véran. Although only 260 inhabitants live here the town is rich in various interesting sites. They are several churches and a Protestant temple, the ancient sundial and an observatory, a museum of rural life, the centuries-old fountains and stoves which still continue to bake bread. It is also a great place for skiers because the length of the longest descent here is slightly less than 10 km.
 
In addition to beautiful nature and excellent conditions for active recreation and sport local cuisine will leave the unforgettable memories. Hautes-Alpes are characterized by more nutritious and rich dishes than those prefered in the Mediterranean Departments. Especially the gratin dofin is loved here (of potatoes, milk, butter and cheese) and the tourtons - small fried patts with various fillings (potatoes, meat and a variety of cheeses, including goat cheese, spinach) which are served as an appetizer to red wine. The tourtons can also be sweet - with apples, chocolate, strawberry. The Department is also famous for honey and apple juice as well as for gourmet dish - terrine of foie gras and figs.
 
So if you want to join the army of fans enjoying the mountains recreation choose Hautes-Alpes of Provence. And you will not regret it!
