An easy and pleasant walk that takes you up to the man-made lake. Different views of the mountains tops along the way

Nice, easy walk through the park with the stations describing the Solar system. Quite educational, would suit older children. Very pretty scenery at many points. Could do with a better marking but generally very good.

This walk takes about 4 hours and passes through gorgeous countryside with stunning views of the Alps. The climb is very gradual and is not too tiring. When you get to the end you can go a bit further up to the top of the hill where the ski lift starts/finishes for more fantastic views.

We walked the 10k. It is well worth the effort. The art work is fun, the panels informative and they keep you wondering what is next. The views of the upper Var valley are simply stunning. If I come back in winter, I will do it again, this time on snow shoes
