A very pretty, charming and peaceful village where farming families have lived for generations.
Vaujany takes great pride in it's efforts and success in conserving its traditional Alpine authenticity. There are traditional, almost unchanged small alpine mountain farms or crofts offering mountain cheeses, fresh butter, milk, honey, fruit conserves and a local génépi liquor made with Alpine flowers.
Vaujany is situated on a sunny slope and the village also benefits from a new sports centre with swimming pool, sauna, steam room and fitness hall. There are 90km of marked trails for solo or guided walks to experience the wealth of mountain flora and fauna, plus tennis archery, and fishing. The Alpette cable car operates from July to September to ease your ascent. Check times and prices at the tourist office. For water activities, the Verney Dam is 5km away.
The children’s clubs in Vaujany are very active with professionally accompanied activities for youngsters including climbing, archery, tennis, and visits to the cattle herds with the shepherd.
Easily accessed from Grenoble (50 km) by main trunk road, Vaujany has a long history as a traditional Alpine village.
