Through the French Alps

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 4 and have 3 days to travel from Bonnieux to Chamonix at the end of June. We have been looking at a few different ways through the alps and one of the options we have been looking at the Route des Grandes Alpes to see some real mountains, so our rough daily itinerary from Luberon as follows.

1.Drive through the lavender fields, Moustiers-Ste-Marie, Gorge du Verdon, overnight near Digne-Les-Bains at Chabrieres, it had good reviews.

2. Travel up to Briancon, overnight.

3.Briancon to Beaufort, via Col du Galibier, Val d'Isere, Route du Cormet De Roselend.

4.Beaufort to Chamonix.

After that we have 6 days in the Chamonix/ Annecy area.

Has anyone been through this way, have any advice on places to stay or visit, is leg 1 too short, is the leg from Briancon to Beaufort via the passes too much in a day.

I have been looking at Via Michelin for times etc, but they differ a bit from times in the Alps Green Guide, so not sure which one to go with, or do we look at a different way.

Any advice is appreciated, thanks.
