Ventavon & Col de Faye
This is one of our favourite first day routes as it’s a perfect introduction to the area without too much climbing. After the obligatory lunch or coffee stop in Ventavon there are a few options for getting back to Serre Des Ormes. The route starts by descending the Gorges de La Méouge before crossing the picturesque Buech valley and heading north up the Ventavon canal with stunning views of the Alps. After climbing up to the village of Ventavon for a coffee at the stunning Auberge the route described here returns via Col de Faye, a perfect first Col for the week ahead with an option to add in Col-St-Jean.
