This is a great stretch of road. I was travelling from Castellane up to Briancon (the highest village in Europe allegedly) I took a detour and discovered the magnificent Lac Serre-Poncon. We stopped for lunch at the Volantis Hotel & Bar. It was their very first day of business, so to celebrate they gave us free drinks, it doesnt get much better than that. I have attached a picture which is the view from the terrace of the Volantis, which can be found inSaint Vincent les Forts.
It is run by a dutch couple, lovely people !!! They have a paragliding school next door, you can just make the parachute out in this photo.
