First impression as you arrive in le Pays du Guil … the light. And then, the sky, pure and blue,… the sun, the mountains and these overwhelming landscapes.
A vibration, a special kind of atmosphere, the promise of an extraordinary holiday.
Upon your arrival in the Guillestrois, you’ll notice the massive rock on which you’ll find the fortified village of Mont Dauphin. At the foot of this rock, the confluence of the Guil and the Durance has created a wider part in the valley. You’ll pass Guillestre, a pretty little town at the entrance of the valley of the Queyras.
And then you’ll enter the canyon of the Guil, the beginning of the Queyras. A canyon that has been carved in this mountain range by the Guil over the course of several centuries. As you progress through this canyon, you’ll arrive in a wider part of the valley again where you’ll discover the villages and hamlets of the Queyras. And all the time you’ll find yourselve submerged in the sheer beauty of nature and of the mountains, impressed by the force of nature in the Queyras and the Guillestrois.
