The city of Barcelonnette, which has a few thousand natives, is in the valley of Ubaye, in the French Alps. In the middle of the mountains, the village is quite touristy and to enjoy nature as well as many events and activities. In the spring you can go walk, bike, or to explore activities like canyoning adventure parks in these trees ... In winter, the village is close to the quiet ski stations. There are also annual events such as the Festival of Barcelonnette in May, a jazz festival in July, the Latin American Music Festival in early August - Free concerts in the square of the village, something not to be missed! - And one classical music in August too. In short, a nice place to spend a few days between lovely landscapes, sports and cultural activities, in family, couples or with a backpack!
