• Saint-Paul-sur-Ubaye


The delightful village of Saint Paul sur Ubaye, situated about 22km from Barcelonnette, is a paradise for snowshoeing and backcountry skiing.

The ski area has a dozen kilometres of groomed pistes and endless opportunities to admire the unspoilt scenery. 

The winter landscape, blanketed with deep snow, and marked only by the tracks of hares or other local residents, reveals a secret, silent world rarely appreciated at the larger resorts.

The village is home to just over 200 inhabitants and has several restaurants and a small general store. 

A range of holiday rentals and B&Bs are available. The architecture is typically Alpine and restored stone cottages line the narrow streets that lead through the village.
