The sweet capital of the Hautes-Alpes
With a reputation for having some of the best skies in Europe, come and discover the prefecture of the Hautes-Alpes, home to 40,000 people: Gap, the "Capitale Douce".
Stroll through its colourful streets and lively squares such as Place Jean Marcellin, Place de la République and Place aux Herbes.
Play with your children at La Peipinière or the Givaudan Park, which offers a perfect outdoor playground.
You'll also want to marvel at the sublime 11th-century cathedral of the Diocese of Gap: Notre-Dame-et-Saint-Arnoux.
If you want to get away from it all, make a diversion to the Domaine de Charance and its picturesque gardens.
