| Molines en Queyras
In the heart of the Queyras Regional Natural Park, in an enchanting
setting, 15 km from the Italian border, Molines en Queyras is a
beautiful little village with wooden houses - larch log façades,
plank balconies - typical of this region of upper Queyras - old
traditional houses called "fustes" (from the Latin word "fustis"
meaning a wooden beam)
Nowadays, many fustes have been converted into modern
homes, but most of them date from the 17th and 18th centuries and
are decorated with picturesque sundials on their façades.
Here you can enjoy downhill skiing with the family, but above all cross-country skiing (all types of runs, from green for beginners to black for experienced skiers), as well as Alpine ski touring.
In winter more than ten peaks can be reached, for those brave enough to try some off-piste skiing !
