Queyras: Best Kept Secret in the Alps Self Guided Walking Holiday
"These Queyras walks provide some of the best mountain walking in France, maybe in Europe, with spectacular views and delightful calm, well away from tourists. The hotels are just right - comfortable, well-run, large rooms with balconies, good food and reasonably priced wines. The mountain trails are well marked, the walking notes are good. In my 70’s I did not climb every peak, that’s for younger and fitter walkers, but I did a good 6 hrs per day, got to the lakes and the mountain cols and enjoyed fabulous scenery. This is a special corner of France and Europe. Altogether a delightful break. Thank you." H. Aldous, UK
"Visiting the Queyras for the first time and being in such wonderful surroundings at the best time of year. Having maps for the area was great to be able to put walks into context." D. Anderson, UK
"(Enjoyed) the flora, the fresh air & high peaks, the exercise and not cooking for 12 days!" J. Watt, UK
