Festival Grandeur Nature

grandeur nature.gif
The high alps are more associated with winter than summer, but even if the stunning scenery is not enough, from 6 to 16 August there is also a Festival of Art amongst the scenic grandeur of the Parc Naturel Regional de Queyras in the villages of Molines, Aiguilles, Arvieux, Chateau Ville Vielle and Saint Veran ( 05 Hautes-Alpes, Provence, Alpes, Cote d’Azur) an area close to the Italian border south east of Grenoble. Set at heights over 2000m numerous events – sculpture, workshops, exhibitions plus a series of feature and documentary films to be shown in outdoor locations all featuring the natural world in its many guises.
For more on the festival see www.festivalgrandeurnature.com and for the Parc Naturel Regional de Queyras see www.pnr-queyras.com/.
Meanwhile the Indpendent has a guide to 48 hours in Grenoble – despite being close to the Alps and having more of a winter persona, “Grenoble is one of the sunniest places in France. It enjoys 2,000 hours of sunshine each year, and to prove it an artificial beach – la Plage de la Bifurk – will be in place until November”- see www.plagedelabifurk.com. I am starting to think that no French town worth its name does not have a summer beach – it is clearly the vogue!
