Between Trièves and Matheysine

Discover Le Monteynard, a world appart

A bridge is now thrown on the turquoise coma of Le Monteynard. Thanks to this there is a link between the two most beautiful summer touristic places of Dauphiné. Landscapes, scents, gastronomy...

On this land of contrasts, half-rural, half-mountain, we can also feel the sweet smell of Provence. Between Grenoble, capital of the Alpes and the nearby South, come and take a few hours or a few days to go hiking, mountain biking, windsurfing, eating local food, sleeping in a guest house, seeing a beautiful chapel, dancing in a village party... Simply enjoy beautiful moments.
