  • To the right of the church (alt. 515 m), take the direction of Quaix-en-Chartreuse by a small road going down. You

    on that side, but the way back to the village is by the left path. You pass over an old building,
    and back in the forest, at the intersection, turn left again following the sign "retour village". You
    You will reach a small street in the village which will take you directly to the town hall and the church.
