Visited Queyras of France for the first time back in June 2008. Went back in late August to walk the Tour du Mont Viso for 4 days between France and Italy. In October, was there again for the third time in 5 months.

Fell in love with Queyras for its tranquillity and natural beauty. In its tourist brochure, it said:

" Welcome to our hidden paradise - a garden in the sun, spoken of only sparsely and in whispers, For the Queyras will ever remain sheltered from noise and the crowd..."

Virtually there is only one road connecting Queyras with the outside world (there are two over 2000 metre high passes which are closed during winter months). This makes it much less crowded compared with other areas in the Alps.
