A village with a double "Label"

Pelvoux-les-Ėcrins, altitude 1250 m, is a village made of small hamlets along the way from Vallouise to Ailefroide.
We are in the middle hamlet of Fangeas, 2,5 km north of Vallouise.
The peak, Mount Pelvoux (3 942 m) gave it its name and the vicinity of the National Park (1500 m away) its character.
