Activities

Chartreuse' Monastery

The Monastery is hidden between montains

The Chartreux are very famous and legendary here. They used to live in our mountains since one thousand years, apart from the modern world, in absolute silence. They're also famous for the very strong green liqueur they make, called "Chartreuse" like our montains. You can visit the museum about their monastic lives at Saint-Pierre de Chartreuse, go for a small walk arround the monastery, and visit the museum of the liqueur "Chartreuse" in Voiron.

Grenoble

Grenoble and its famous cable

 Grenoble is a 200.000 inhabitants city. With about 80.000 students, the atmosphear there is quite young and dynamic, lots of music, theater, and culture (the Musée de Grenoble has a very nice permanent collection of paintings).

 Start by taking the cable-car to reach the "bastille" to get a panoramic view on the city...

 You can get there by bus from the village.

Charmant Som

Charmant Som, Chartreuse
At evening time, nice light

In summer, you can reach the alp of the "Charmant Som" by car. You will find there the cheese made there, a restaurant, and a wonderful landscape.

 You can just stay there and enjoy, or, for the most sporty, from the parking you can reach the submit in 45 minutes hiking. From the submit, the view is panoramic and you can see the Montblanc and a big part of french Alps.

 In winter, that's still a beautiful place for hiking and cross country skiing.


And, of course, lots of hiking trails...
