Why does the Drôme provençale seduce so many people?
As soon as you get to Montélimar, the Drôme Provençale extends in front of your eyes, operating a change of scenery and climate. Blue sky, colourful facades, sunshine… The Drôme provençale is the southernmost part of the Rhône-Alpes region; it enjoys a Mediterranean climate and, throughout the year, mild weather and plenty of sunshine. The Drôme provençale is thus ideal for many outdoor activities: hiking, mountain biking, horse riding, tennis, aerial sports (paragliding, climbing…) and water sports. The region’s landscapes are rich and varied, from the Rhône valley to the Baronnies Provençales.
Atypical and arousing curiosity, the perched villages of the Drôme Provençale continue to enchant visitors. It’s an absolute delight to stroll there, through their alleys, in the heart of Provençal markets and castles.
Finally, the Drôme provençale is a perfect place for food-lovers, thanks to a variety of local agricultural productions. Rich and varied area, the Drôme provençale tastes of Nyons’ olive oil, black truffle from Tricastin, nougat from Montélimar, lime from the Baronnies and, of course, lavender!
