"Frequently recognized as the most magnificent road in the French Alps"

"Route de Presles is a stunning mountain road located in the Isère department in southeastern France."
"It’s one of the most spectacular balcony roads in the country."

At the bottom of the Gorges de la Bourne is the pretty town of Pont en Royan with it's "hanging" houses.
"It’s one of the most spectacular roads in the world"

Looking across to the Vercors in the evening
There are also locations that aren't on mountain roads
This road is quiet enough for to allow pictures .
