For this stage, we propose two variants:
' The waymarked ‘Tour de la Dent du Ratier’ trail to Ville Vieille. From La Chalp or Saint-Véran, you'll walk to the hamlet of Pierre Grosse and admire its traditional houses. Next you’ll cross the village of Molines and go down to La Rua de Molines, another traditional hamlet of this so-called Aigues valley. (If you’ve spent the night in Gaudissart, you’ll find La Rua lower down.) You’ll go down through the forest to reach Ville Vieille, a little village in the middle of the Queyras. Finally, why not visit the Maison de l’Artisanat to admire the furniture and other objects made from arolla pinewood, or to sample some of the local produce.
' The variant via the Pierre Dimanche canal to Aiguilles. From your accommodation at La Rua, La Chalp or St Véran, you’ll walk to Pierre Grosse hamlet. The Pierre Dimanche canal leads you to the hamlets of Gaudissart, then Prats-Haut. This lovely balcony path offers a superb panoramic view of the entire valley. You'll spot the famous Demoiselle Coiffée of Queyras before reaching the so-called ‘Americans’ village’ with its colonial-style houses.
