Our terrace is available for bar customers to have a picnic

Our bar and its panoramic terrace are open all year round. 

Just a few kilometres from the Grotte de Choranche, you can enjoy the pleasant picnic area in the village of Choranche – or, a little further away, the picnic area in Pont-en-Royans, with a view of the hanging houses. Both picnic areas are by the River Bourne.
