Briancon – Guillestre & Col Angel – Hardcore
Description: The village lies high within the alps of France on the left bank of the Chagne, a stream, tributary of the Guil.

Part of the town’s charm is that it’s “authentic” looking, with tall houses and narrow streets, wooden cranes are common in upper-floor windows. Since they’re not often in use, many spend their idle hours suspending pots of colorful flowers.
