  • Well known stop for bikers (but not only) the tavern of the col de Vars is worth by the fresh air we breathe here above, its vast parking lot and its welcoming terrace. Beautiful possibilities for hiking out of the neck. When the Sun is out it alongside the great happiness. The crepes are delicious and hearty. Missing just a smile a bit more generous to the boss to make everything perfect!

  • From a cycling point of view, with access by the Valley of Ubaye, the col de Vars is very interesting for a first approach to the mountain passes. It goes up by levels, first in false flat up to Saint Paul, and then with percentages, interspersed a false light dishes up to 4-5 km of the finish and he ends up with more significant ramps then. The bitumen is impeccable (remade by parties for the recent passage of the Tour de France) and the road is very wide. The col de Vars is probably less characteristic and less difficult than other passes of the Ubaye Valley (Allos, location and Restefond in order of increasing difficulty) but it allows well to legs with of climb on steepest roads
