This is a very overlooked area, most people blast down past here on their way to and from the Côte d'Azur or the Col de la Bonette area. Which is a shame because there are some cracking roads around here. Apart from the roads it also has some rather nice scenery. Grenoble itself is large and congested, lying in the Isère valley: to the east some high hills leading towards Briançon and the Alps proper: to the west the "French Dolomites" a ridge of hard limestone mountains in the Vercours national park. One of my favourite bits of road lies to the north of Mens to the south of La Mure.
