Guillestre

The charming town centre of Guillestre with its 2400 inhabitants, is situated in the heart of an ancient stronghold at 1000 meters of altitude. Here you will find everything you need to spend an unforgettable vacation. Stroll along the narrow lanes of the old quarters protected by historical towers and battlements, admire the church of Notre-Dame d'Aquilon, enjoy the refreshing sound of the fountains, and why not heading towards the upper parts of town, at “la Viste” you will be delighted by a panoramic view… Ideally situated between the Queyras regional park and the national park of Les Ecrins, Guillestre offers you a wide range of hiking trails, from easy paths ideal for families to ridge trekking among some of the highest peaks of the Alpes.
A paradise for children and parents, everything has been made to ensure a pleasant stay for everyone. Through Consum’actor Workshops you can produce your own piece of local handicraft. In August do not miss the “Potes de MarmoT’s” festival offering a programme full of activities and fun specially made for children.
