Ecot

Authenticity and simplicity

Steeped in history since the Middle Ages, this hamlet has been completely restored and protected since 1971. It was chosen as the village of Sebastian and his endearing grandfather, César. Time appears to stand still in this hamlet where we can admire traditional stone houses grouped huddled together under the benevolent eye of the Sainte-Marguerite Chapel.

This unique character was beautifully captured by the film crews who shot the adventures of Belle and Sebastian here.

In summer, a 4-km hiking trail takes families from Bonneval sur Arc to follow in the footsteps of Sebastian and discover the treasures of this hamlet.

It is also the starting point for walks to the mountain refuges of Carro and Evettes and the sources of the Arc, a natural glacial cirque wilderness, as well as for a canyoning descent of the Arc.
