Massif de la Chartreuse

Recommended
Three distinct regions depict this range poised at the junction of the Alps and Jura ranges. The lower valley and its remnants of alluvial forest is attempting to resist rampant urbanism and home to cottage gardens and vineyards. The alternating hillsides and plains of agricultural Chartreuse are next. Finally, the secluded villages and hamlets deep in the forest that covers over half the area form the centre of this range, lending it a more unspoiled dimension.
