The Queyras is a dramatic, unspoilt region in the shadow of Monte Viso, sheltered to the west by the crins, and is one of the
sunniest areas of the Alps. The absence of glaciers makes ideal hillwalking country, with several high mountain summits accessible
to the ordinary walker and scrambler and it's one of Frances best kept secrets!
