For many, the Vallée des Villards is a photograph album of fond memories, for some an opportunity to clear the mind, for others a rendez vous for a well-earned holiday. Perched half-way up the wooded flanks of the Col du Glandon, the valley's two sunny villages, Saint Colomban and Saint Alban des Villards, are brought to life by the burbling springs and mountain streams and crowned by the snow-capped summits of Le Sambuis, Le Puy Gris and Les Argentières.

Ideal as a winter holiday location, the Vallée des Villards is the premier gateway into Les Sybelles - with 310 km of trails, now one of France's largest skiable areas.
