Discover the small village of Méolans Revel

Méolans Revel

Moelans Revel is made up of several scattered hamlets: Méolans, St Barthélémy, Laverq, Rioclar and Revel. It is overlooked by several peaks (Tête de Louis XVI at 2,408m, L'Estrop at 2,961m, Les Trois Évêchés at 2,819m), and is a veritable nature paradise.
Located at the heart of the sumptuous Ubaye valley, with its greenery, woods, sun and peacefulness, nature lovers will be in their element here: climbing, hiking, and white water sports in the turbulent waters of the river Ubaye await them!

But the municipality also has several churches (one per hamlet) (in particular the beautiful 14th century bell tower at Méolans, a hillside village), some beautiful ruins (such as those of Laverq Abbey, 12th century), a chapel with fresco and sundial, an old bakers oven, etc.
Note a curious local feature: donkeys for hire!!!
