Saint Nizier du Moucherotte
Saint-Nizier-du-Moucherotte is the highest village of Vercors, at an elevation of 1,100 m. This village stands on a natural headland and offers a breathtaking view of the entire valley around Grenoble, that the ‘3 Pucelles’ peak proudly overlooks.
Saint-Nizier became well-known after the battles of June 1944 (symbol of the Resistance), and also thanks to the ancient Moucherotte cable car and the 1968 Olympic ski jumping, but today it is a peaceful village with a few shops. It is the ideal place to stay if you’d like to explore northern Vercors. The 3 Pucelles, Moucherotte and Plateau Charvet are natural sites to explore on foot as you venture along the many hiking trails.
