Val Pelouse


About Us

Going up to Val Pelouse means taking a deep breath of Nature, which will allow you to taste blueberries, hike with the family or discover the joys of free flight.

Val Pelouse is above all an Alpine pasture located at an altitude of 1700m, welcoming heifers and their calves in the summer since the Middle Ages.

The history of Val Pelouse is unique, since it is also a former alpine ski resort which was dismantled in the mid-80s.
Here nature has reclaimed its rights, all the installations have been dismantled, giving way to mountain pastures dotted with arnica, rhododendrons and blueberries.

For your greatest pleasure, the site is crossed by hiking trails, notably the GR738. It also accommodates a take-off area.
