Know-how and craftsmanship around Rosans in the High Alps
Nestled in the beautiful site of the Baronnies provençales natural park, the village of Rosans is the ideal destination for off-road stays. Located in the heart of the “Provence des montagnes” (mountainous Provence), this small medieval village combines the beauty of the Alps with southern charm. In Rosans and around the village, discover the many secrets of know-how and craftsmanship during your camping stay at Les Hauts de Rosans campsite.
It is the cultivation of olive trees and lime trees that predominates, and of course that of lavender, especially around Rosans. Not forgetting the goat and sheep farms at the origin of the making of delicious cheeses. Over the centuries, all these activities have shaped the landscape of this unique region.
Livestock, the living wealth of the Rosans area
Local producers open their doors in Moydans at the Téron cheese dairy and in Jassines, for the direct sale of goat cheese. There, you will also have the opportunity to discover the Observatoire des Baronnies provençales.
In Sorbiers, do take time to visit the farm “Les brebis de Céline” to taste some exquisite local cheeses and even yoghurts. These are all wonderful moments for children in the company of animals too!
Lavender, spirit of the Baronnies natural park
A short walk will take you to the distillery of La Rivière des Arômes, where you will be welcomed by a breath of scents. Lavender is treated, but many aromatic and medicinal plants are also grown organically. You will follow the different processes from the harvest to the final product, the famous lavender essential oil. These experts of plant transformation also produce floral waters, massage oils and floral syrups.
A rich and varied region around the campsite
If you like honey, you will love the one produced by the local bees. You’ll have the opportunity to taste many different varieties, produced by the remarkable beekeepers of the region.
The Baronnies’ lands are favourable to diversified agriculture that respects the environment. 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: honey, essential oils, lime blossom, walnuts, plums, honey soaps…
