The beautiful country

Seen from the entrance of the ITER Headquarters, the Massif des Écrins, with summits between 3,000 and 4,100 meters, glimmers in the evening light. The buildings of the Vinon-sur-Verdon aeroclub are at the forefront.

The Vinon-sur-Verdon aeroclub is at the forefront of the picture; center right is the village of Villeneuve.
