Located at an altitude of 860 to 970m, the hamlets of Travers (French for “across”) are so-called as they are spread along the north side of Saint-Bon Valley along the Doron de Bozel River. They are therefore dotted “across” the north side. These hamlets on the slopes and surrounded by orchards were the first to be inhabited. They used to be linked by mule-driver paths which have since been converted into footpaths to the delight of hiking enthusiasts.
Start from the car park on the edge of Fontanil, walk to the village then follow signs for Le Grenier/Le Fay/Le Buisson which will lead you to the bottom of the dwellings. You’ll see the bread oven and chapel along the way.
