Why stay in Château – Ville-Vieille?

After a fascinating guided tour under the Château-Queyras fort, the village housing the former garrison is teeming with life and activity. As you wander through the perched lanes or along the banks of the Guil, restaurants with huge terraces, via ferratas and water rafting take you on a whirlwind of sensations. Upstream, everyone will beg you to make a stop in Ville-Vieille, which, no kidding, has a second youth. This village, at the crossroads of your Queyrassin stay, will be the perfect place for everyone to stock up on artisanal delights and good deals in the Tourist Office square. This village, with its quirky central street, still bears the scars of the 1957 floods… We’ll leave you to find them, as well as the beautiful and mysterious eight locks wardrobe.

Village presentation

When you come up the Guil from Guillestre, there’s a moment you won’t be able to miss. THE Queyras castle! A real picaresque stronghold. Perched on its cliffs, this impregnable place has sheltered mountain dwellers since prehistoric times. The whole village is characterized by its presence. Rehabilitated by Vauban, it reminds us how much this high valley of the Guil, where the banished and the excluded once took refuge, was once the focus of struggles and covetousness. Today, the deepest peace and silence are offered to you in these high places whose Château and Ville-Vieille mark the entrance. Enjoy them without hindrance, in breathtaking surroundings. For, summer or winter, all the surrounding peaks and thousand-year-old larch forests are citadels to be conquered, fresh and joyful.
