To discover - things to do in the Hautes Alpes

La Maison du Guil, a charming bed and breakfast on a unique location in le Pays du Guil in the Hautes Alpes, in a hamlet that is nicknamed “le petit Nice” because of its micro climate and the hours of sunshine.  At the entrance of the Parc Naturel Régional du Queyras and the Parc Naturel National des Ecrins, close to the valley of the Haute Ubaye and the ski resort of Vars Risoul La Forêt Blanche.  Not far from the Vauban fortifications in the Hautes Alpes:  Mont Dauphin and Briançon, close to the town of Embrun and next to the town of Guillestre.  The Guillestrois is an area to discover in every season.  Plenty of things to do, as you will discover on these pages.  


Spring with a multitude of flowers, an avalanche of colours in an awakening nature.  Summer with a very nice climate and mountain lakes, Autumn with autumn colours that match the indian summer of North America and a very mild climate as well.  Winter, where snow invites you to discover the mountains in a different way.  On the links below you can find what each season has to offer you, and the activities in that season.  Do not hesitate to contact us if you should need more information, or if we can be of any help with the planning of your trip.
