Know-how and crafts around Rosans in the Hautes-Alpes
Nestled in the privileged site of the Baronnies Provençal Natural Park, the village of Rosans is the ideal destination for a stay off the beaten track. Situated in the heart of "the Provence of the mountains", this small medieval village combines the beauty of the Alps with southern charm. In and around the village of Rosans, discover the many secrets of the know-how and craftsmanship during your stay at the Hauts de Rosans campsite.
Olive trees and lime trees predominate, and of course lavender, especially around Rosans. Without forgetting the goat and sheep farms, which are at the origin of the elaboration of delicious cheeses. Over the centuries, all these activities have shaped the landscape of this very special region.
Animal husbandry, the living wealth of Rosans
The producers open the doors of their farm in Moydans to you at the Téron cheese dairy and at Les Jassines, for the direct sale of goat's cheese. This is also an opportunity for you to discover the Observatory of the Provençal Baronnies. It is in Sorbiers that the ewe is in the spotlight at the farm "Les brebis de Céline" where the production comes in the form of tommes, brousses, faisselles and even yoghurts. These are all wonderful moments for children in the company of animals.
Lavender, the spirit of the Baronnies
A short walk will take you to the distillery of La Rivière des Arômes where you will be greeted by a breath of scent. Lavender is processed there, but also many aromatic and medicinal plants are organically cultivated. You will follow the different processes from the harvest to the final product, the essential oil. These virtuosos of plant processing also offer you floral waters, massage oils and floral syrups.
A varied terroir around the campsite
The bees take great pleasure in the flowery mountain slopes to make an exceptional honey. It is then up to you to taste the different varieties worked by the remarkable beekeepers of the region.
The land of the Baronnies is favourable to a diversified and environmentally friendly agriculture. During your visit to the priory of Saint-André de Rosans, don't miss the Ferme Aux Arômes de Mange Fèves and its farm products: honeys, essential oils, linden, walnuts, plums, honey soaps...
Crafts, a source of encounters
The imposing Square Tower of Rosans opens its doors wide to local craftsmen and producers during the summer months. The surrounding villages are ideal places for working with leather and wood and for making original jewellery. You can even meet a cutlery craftsman at La Forge de Rosans.
Lovers of knitting and natural wool creations will be delighted in Sigottier and Saint-Julien-en-Beauchêne and will enjoy a walk in Serres, a medieval village.
In the hands of artists, clay lends itself to all techniques to produce superb creations, such as the creations of Corinne Vallière in Montclus. This peaceful village has other surprises in store, such as the Atelier d'Art de peinture sur soi and its educational area.
It is with pleasure that we will welcome you to discover this little-known, multi-faceted area and offer you quality services.
