A Stroll Through La Grave

Beautiful Villages of France

26 min

Isolated in their rugged valley nestled in the Hautes-Alpes, the inhabitants of La Grave have had to fight to survive, subsisting in almost autarky with their farm animals and fields. In 1881, the construction of the Lautaret road finally opened the access to the valley. And a century later, the cable car takes skiers down to an altitude of 3,600 metres.
