HikingMany walking paths are vailable to the hikers to discover the surrounding nature. The GR (chemin de grande randonnée) that makes the tour of Coulmes passes by the hamlet of Railletière, just downwards of the gite. A list of the marked out paths is available near the park of Vercors. Map: IGN 3235 OT - Autrans.
The domain of Coulmes offers a very vast choice of paths, marked out or not. It is accessible by D22 - carpark within 1km from the village - in direction from Presles.
The many paths for summer hiking and cross-country skiing are also the paradise of "snowshoers".
The plateau of Coulmes also makes it possible to leave the beaten paths and to hike deep in the powder snow. Armed with a good map and/or a GPS, you can make of it your ground of discovery for the weekend or for the week. The many marked out paths also offer a permanent pleasure to those which prefer fun & tranquility.
The cirque of Railletière and the valley of Rencurel, accessible through the plateau of Coulmes offer a broad choice of ski tours of all levels and far from traditional overloaded tracks. For those in love with mountains.
The city swimming pool of Malleval is open from mid-june to mid-septembre. Another city pool is accessible at Vinay. They are both open to sky.
On the border of the cirque of Railletiere, overhanging the hamlet, two sites welcome parapenters. Both are visible from the gite; one to the south and the other to the south-west. The access is through D22 with a first parking where the road reaches the border of the cirque (Pré coquet).
A school of climbing is at a few hundred meters of the village, in the direction of the hamlet of Servagère. This pretty site is under development thanks to volunteers which open new ways of all levels. >>More
