But where is the city, we left it barely 5 minutes ago? Grenoble, Gières, Saint Martin d'Hères, all three are just a purr below...
Yes, the city is so close and yet so far behind, leaving its hustle and bustle behind in favor of a village environment: old houses and wooded properties, which you can discover on foot or by car - no fuss, the countryside is already here.
From the Mûrier hill, the Chartreuse dominates in a tight row, its gentle slopes lined with small white houses.
Sitting comfortably on the foothills of the Belledonne, you can look down on the toy-sized conurbation: far off to the left, Grenoble seems wedged against the Vercors, which rises up, straight and wild, a silent promise of other vistas.
All year round.
Subject to favorable weather.
