The Narreyroux Valley

THE NARREYROUX VALLEY

Head off to discover the enchanting Narreyroux Valley and its magnificent waterfalls and chalets. Many hiking routes, of varying difficulty, follow pleasant routes through the forests in a pastoral atmosphere (herds of sheep) and a beautiful view.

Narreyroux is a small hamlet with a few alpine chalets, nestled in a superb valley above Puy Saint Vincent.

THE NARREYROUX VALLEY

A beautiful pasture valley, traditional chalets, flora...

Start from the 15th-century Saint-Vincent Chapel and follow the small road and the footpaths that cut the corners of the road. After the small wooden bridge, take the footpath to the left, finish below the Notre Dame de Narreyroux chapel.

Extension: After the alpine chalets, either stay on the forest track or cross the footbridge to continue alongside the Combe stream (right bank*). It is easy to reach the foot of the waterfall (1930 m) in 1 hour.

After the waterfall, head towards the Col du Bal, 1 hr 30 min, the Neyzet Lake, the Crêtes Reychard.

When arriving from the Notre Dame de Narreyroux Chapel, a little further on from the sheep pen to the left, you will cross the footbridge to go alongside the Combe stream on the right bank, or stay on the forest track until you reach the car park (end of the road).

Walk over the footbridge to pick up the trail on the right bank.
