A preserved valley of the Alps
La Clarée, a river with surprisingly clear water, hollowed out a green valley between the Alps, scattered with hamlets and traditional villages. Away from the motorways, this valley has managed to preserve an authentic charm with preserved nature, but also some lovely churches with mural paintings and picturesque chapels. Together with the Vallée Étroite, it forms a splendid nature site (26.000 ha) enriched with cultural and military heritage. The Haute Vallée offers visitors tens of incredibly charming mountain lakes. These two valleys are part of the network of Grands Sites de France. In summer, the area is a delight to hikers and anglers while winter brings Nordic skiing and unforgettable sleigh rides.
