  • The landscape of the Hill is really lovely, with the Lake and the Alps from France and Italy to make a frame. Opened in fits and starts in winter, in summer comes alive with motorcyclists and cyclists, on the Hill (Colde Larche) there are two facilities to accommodate the Wayfarer

  • Winding road all Italian side, beautiful pure French. In spite of the fact you are not one of our highest hills, on top of the mountains are beautiful. Large car park, and the chalet Italian, served us a very rich polenta con son sausage and stew almost at 3 in the afternoon!

  • We go there often, starting from our accommodation in Vinadio. It is a place of incomparable beauty, situated at 2000 meters altitude at the height of the Valle Stura di Demonte. The pass connects one of the most beautiful valleys of Piedmont for its wildlife with the equally beautiful Ubaye Valley, Haute-Provence: where are the towns of Jousier, Barcelonnette, Carlo westward as far as Lake Serre Poncon and Vars to the North, along the Alps de Haute Provence, to get up to Briancon. Paradise for marmots, ibex and chamois. Right on the shores of lago della Maddalena is a seasonal bar and restaurant (summer only) preparing fast food (especially polenta in various ways) right for a good break in scenic surroundings. Just wish the beautiful road that traverses such places and leads to this paradise is often used, especially in summer, by bikers who ignore the highway code (not all, but many) acting in the belief of being on a race track and, consequently, the path is often the scene of serious traffic accidents.
