Situated 1528 metres above sea-level in the department of Alpes-Haute-Provence, Peyresq lies close to the small towns of Annot and Saint-André-des-Alpes, 100 km from Nice and 75 km from Digne.
Peyresq is a mountain village with a mediterranean climate, hot during the day, but chilly when the sun goes down. So pack a sweater and some comfortable shoes, as well as any medicines you might need. The charm of Peyresq is that it has no petrol pumps, shops, pharmacies, newsagents, banks or motorways!
Coming from Nice.
The picturesque “Train des Pignes” runs between Nice and Digne several times a day.
It stops in Annot, from where Peyresq is reached by road. You can, however, ask to be dropped off at the Peyresq halt, from where you can reach the village on foot. It’s about a two and a half hour walk. The road has been restored, but unfortunately there is still a 510 metre gradient!
Preferably to be undertaken without luggage! or at most a light backpack.
The return trip down is much easier.
