  • Briançon is blessed with what some say are 300 days of sunshine a year, benefitting from the climate from the Cote D’Azur. Despite this, we arrived after heavy snow had hampered our journey over the p...  more »
  • The historic centre of Briancon, surrounded by a double wall, looks like a fortified settlement built to defend the region from the Austrians in the 17th century. The roads are very steep and narrow, but extremely picturesque and full of shops, excellent restaurants, bars and shops of souvenirs. Beautiful day in Briançon, I recommend visiting!

  • Very cute and charming little village of Briancon. A medieval atmosphere, you walk down these streets full of souvenir shops and typical products, at the end you have a great view of the mountains from which make excellent panoramic shots! The parking is convenient to leave the machines, is extra but is there any benefit. In addition leave several interesting walks that you can do around the area.

  • Subject: Information relating to the practicability of the pass road of Izoard resident recently at the Laus de Cervières, I counted more than 80 vehicles (for the ones drivers came to inquire at the hostel L ' Arpelin to the Laus) this winter. All wanted to go in the Queyras (guided by their GPS). Observation: the light panel placed at the roundabout at the exit of Briançon, sane announce the closure of cervical Izoard (and not the Izoard) often announces several informational messages. Motorists can miss out on good intelligence. More is not legible, placed at the exit of the roundabout which requires a lot of attention. Finally the tourists don't know about their huge majority the Izoard pass serves... the Queyras (well Yes, GPS requires)!) Proposal: 1 - move the Panel more upstream at the level of the hairpin hair 500 m more far away (HLM), allowing him to be seen for a sufficient period of time. More parking at this location would facilitate the u-turn of the vehicles. 2-good notify the fact that the Izoard pass serves.. .the Queyras. Please take into account this information... that will save time and fuel, not to mention the management of fatigue of the applicants and their nervousness.
