Champsaur and Valgaudemar

champsaur-et-valgaudemar.jpg

FROM ONE VALLEY TO THE OTHER
After the golden fields of Champsaur, under the watchful eye of the mountain of Vieux-Chaillol,
the turbulent white waters of the Drac river run through an open, fertile valley.

The plain gives way to a narrow and deep valley that takes its name from an old local family : Valgaudemar.
Dug from East to West by the River Séveraisse the Valgaudemar and a few kilometres away the
lower valley of Champsaur lie on the axis linking Gap and Grenoble.

Valgaudemar is the land of water where torrents and cascades arise everywhere. You can admire the eddies
of Les Oules du Diable, the whiteness of the “Wedding veil” and the crystal clearness of Lakes Petarel and Lauzon.
This water, born of the glaciers of the Ecrins Park has long served to power mills, such as that of Villar-Loubierre

When you approach Valgaudemar from Saint-Firmin and continue up until La Chapelle, you will discover
a very pleasant valley. Above the town of Gap the Mediterranean border is marked by the Bayard Pass.
The Champsaur region sits on the edge : it is a large area with a specific landscape offering sunshine,
peace and quiet and sports activities. In winter you can find all wintersport
activities in the very modern resort of Orcières-Merlette, as well as the villages of le Laye, Saint-Léger-les-Mélèzes
and d'Ancelle.

The once densely populated upper and middle Champsaur region has seen several waves of emigration, especially to the western
United States during the 19th century.
The Champsaur valley has a lot to offer : canoeing on the Drac river, hiking in Champoléon, horse riding in
Pont-du-Fossé and cycling in le Noyer. For sports or leisure activities.
