3 points of interest

  • Panorama

    Chaudanne restraint

    Leaned on the rocky barrier of the Crémon, the village of Demandolx overlooks the lakes Chaudanne and Castillon, offering a magnificent panorama which recalls the Norwegian fjords where the deep blue lakes sparkle in a green mountain.
  • Patrimony and history

    The burnt farm

    The burnt farm, place with the strange name, we find in fact the ruins of an old building, but no one knows that at what time the farm was destroyed or burned.
  • Panorama


    Admire the aspen forest previously crossed, forming a bright green spot in the landscape


Exit the car park and follow the Avenue du Teillon towards Castellane then turn left, chemin de Thuveras. Go down the road on the right, continue straight on the farm path. At the end of the road at the place called La tour, continue in the same direction

1- At the intersection take the path on the right and go down to the creek. Cross the wooden bridge and go up the trail to an intersection.

2- Turn left towards GR®4 and Saint Barnabé. Go up the path and join an esplanade, under a high voltage line. Follow the trail (GR®4 red and white markings).

3- At the fork near the pylon turn right and descend for about 700 m until the track splits in two.

4- Leave the GR®4, and go down the track to the right. At the foot of the ruined farm, go up on the right by the path, passing over two terraces. Climb through the boxwood, up to "Cognas", an orientation table on a beautiful point of view. Then continue on the path below the table and join point 2 of the hike. Go down on the left and return to the village by the route taken on the way.
