Cet été, découvrez le Val d’Escreins
Vars is actually made up of 4 hamlets: Saint-Marcellin, Sainte-Catherine, Les Claux and Sainte-Marie. As you stroll through the narrow streets this summer, you'll be able to see preserved infrastructures such as wash-houses, communal ovens and old chalets. Symbols of a centuries-old mountain heritage. Don't miss the chance to venture into the unspoilt Val d'Escreins. A feeling of immensity will surely overcome you when you find yourself alone in the middle of the Queyras Regional Nature Park. With larch forests, verdant mountain pastures, torrents and ever-changing wildlife, nature here is dazzling. You'll also be at the heart of the history of this area of the Hautes-Alpes, with its small chapels, mountain huts and numerous ruins of old hamlets,
