Villard de Lans
Capital of the canton, Villard de Lans is the attraction centre of the Vercors. At 1,050 m in altitude, this village of over 4,000 inhabitants has retained it architectural heritage and welcoming atmosphere, born at the start of the 20th century with the development of bourgeois tourism. Its privileged location, easy access and pure air have generated a prosperous tourist industry, boosted by the 1968 Olympic Games. Climatic, summer and winter sports tourism developed, and Villard de Lans has never stopped changing. Today, the modern, varied tourist offering has not altered the authentic face of an agricultural, mid-mountain village, that is active all year round.
