From the ascent of the Agnel Pass by bike, Nordic ski or dog sledging, to the “Gardiole de l’Alp” on skis or on foot, your desire for adventure will be fulfilled! For the contemplative ones, the village and its hamlets on the mountainside have preserved their traditional architecture of “fuste and caset”.

Village presentation

The seven hamlets of Molines and its main village are scattered along the “Aigue Agnelle”. Molines derives its name from the numerous windmills that once stood on its river banks. Today, there are still three “Pont du Moulin” (mill bridges). Pastoral life still reigns here. The herds graze peacefully thanks to the shepherd’s work, whom you are invited to understand and respect. The larch trees are royals in both architecture and landscape. Inhabitants are attached to their heritage and take great care of maintaining it. At Le Serre and Fontgillarde, the bread oven continues to heat up several times a year. In La Rua, the St Romain church and two houses are listed historic monuments.

The downhill ski area

The Molines – Saint-Véran ski area is the largest in the Queyras. Culminating at 2,830 meters, it offers panoramic views of the surrounding peaks from the Crête de Curlet to the Tête de Longet and the emblematic Mount-Viso! Molines – Saint-Véran is a high-altitude ski resort with untouched slopes, but also skiing in the larch forest! It offers pistes for all levels, from descents suitable for beginners to those approved for competition. There is something for everyone!
