A beautiful familial stroll, twisting on the heights of the ski resort. It will offer you a point of view on the "Aiguilles d'Arves", the Belledonne and the Maurienne Valley.

Le chemin des hameaux
Departures: There are two possible departure points: from "Les Pérelles", at the top of the resort, or from the hamlet of "Cochenières", on the road to Montgellafrey.

From Les Pérelles, follow the path downhill, signposted with yellow markers. The path splits in two after 20 minutes. Turn right and descend for 25 minutes to the hamlet of Replat, then continue flat for 15 minutes to the hamlet of Cochenières. From here, you can loop back up to Les Pérelles (45 mins) or join the Montgellafrey road, which will take you back to the resort (20 mins), or cross the road and follow the Cochenières path to Place de la Madeleine (40 mins).
