Located in a privileged area in the Southern Alps, on the edge of the Drôme Provençale, the 4-star campsite Les Hauts de Rosans enjoys many assets for the greatest happiness of holidaymakers:
- A terraced configuration, following the curves of the mountain and allowing mobile homes, chalets, tents, caravans and camper vans to have a breathtaking panoramic view;
- A mild climate with sunny summer days and temperate nights;
- A starting point for many hikes and mountain bike rides;
- A very rich regional cultural and natural heritage, only a few moments away from the campsite
In the heart of the Provençal Baronnies, a beautiful region located on the border of the Drôme, Rosans is a small jewel, some 57 km north-east of Vaison la Romaine. In the village, you’ll love walking along the narrow streets that hide many treasures of ochre stones, old roofs and Roman tiles. A peaceful medieval village that has managed to preserve its charm of yesteryear.
At the entrance of the village of Rosans in the Hautes-Alpes, the tone is set. Rue de la Tour, rue du Four and the Impasse du Recoin lead to a remarkable square tower (Tour carrée) (also known as the “Saracen Tower”), dating from the 13th century.
A few moments away, Saint-André-de-Rosans deserves a detour, notably to discover the magnificent ruins of a Benedictine priory representative of the Provençal Romanesque art. It carries more than 1000 years of existence during which it has managed to preserve his magnificent carved friezes.
The climate in Rosans
Experienced campers know this well: the climate of Rosans is ideal for camping in tents, camper vans, caravans or a stay in a rental (mobile home, chalet or bungalow). A warm temperate climate where summer days are very pleasant and where the nights are temperate, allowing for a comfortable sleep for all, young and old alike.
In addition, Rosans is also covered by a pure, pollution-free sky. In Rosans, the starry nights offer a breathtaking show and, for amateurs or beginners, the astronomical observatory of the Baronnies Provençales is only a few kilometres
The Provençal Baronnies
Nature lovers know and appreciate the Regional Natural Park of the Baronnies Provençales. A superb park stretching over a massif between the Drôme and the Hautes-Alpes. A rich terroir offering sumptuous landscapes and a rich historical heritage. The park offers a multitude of plant species including many orchards, olive groves, fields of lime trees, lavender, thyme and rosemary. The dry stone terraces and perched villages are an integral part of the beauty of the region, ideal for lovers of quiet camping holidays.
The Buëch Country
A country with the accents of Provence, which goes from Sisteron to the Lus-la-Croix-Haute Col; the Buëch region is a transition between Provence and the Dauphiné. It stretches as far as the eye can see, on several heights ranging from 480 to 2700 metres above sea level, offering hikers numerous possibilities for excursions on foot or by mountain bike, whatever their level.
The Buëch region does not only attract holidaymakers and campers. It also knows how to seduce artists, like Jean Giono, whose senses had been awakened by its beauty.
« Like men, countries have a nobility that can only be known by approach and friendly visitation. And there is no more powerful tool of approach and attendance than walking. » Extract from a chronicle, October 15,1967 in the Dauphiné Libéré (“La Marche à pied”) by Jean Giono.
A region highly appreciated by sportspeople
If many campers come to stay at the 4-star campsite Les Hauts de Rosans to rest and have a good time with family or friends, those who enjoy sport like it even more!
Bicycle and mountain-bike enthusiasts have a huge playground around the campsite: the Baronnies and Buëch in the Hautes Alpes have many marked routes and are listed on precise maps, directly available at the reception desk.
For thrill-seekers, there are many activities on land, in the air and in white waters. Close to the campsite, a paragliding school opens its doors to holidaymakers on the sites of Mévouillon and Sederon. Initiates and connoisseurs of paragliding will go to the site of Pelonne, in Drôme Provençale, only 10 minutes from the campsite.
At 45 minutes from the campsite Les Hauts de Rosans, in the Hautes-Alpes, the village of Orpierres is one of the first French sites equipped for climbing, with 500 lengths on 7 distinct cliffs: a great diversity of climbs for all levels.
The surrounding rivers (the Eygues, Buëch, Méouge, etc.) are a true haven of peace for fishing and a real happiness for all amateur fishermen.
