A small gem, overlooking the Durance valley from its clifftop position, Embrun's mild microclimate has seen the town become known as the Nice of the Alps.

Dating back to the medieval era, the town is filled with architectural interest, in particular the Notre-Dame du Réal cathedral, a Gothic-style masterpiece, and the Tour Brune.

With its location in the Alps, Embrun's natural surroundings are just as stunning as its buildings. A gateway to the Écrins National Park, the surrounding countryside is particularly good for hiking and mountaineering. While just outside the town sits the Embrun lake, where swimming and sailing can be enjoyed in the summer months.
