The Rhone/French Alps region

The Drôme Valley is right in between Lyon and Avignon, in the South-East of France. The climate is almost Mediterranean, with 2400 hours of sunlight/year and, usually, very dry summers. As always in the South of France, you can expect some windy days, it's part of the landscape in the region! The Drôme River flows through the valley and is very clean, allowing plenty of kayaking and bathing in the summer. Our property is located in the countryside and the pace of life is peaceful and tranquil, all geared towards enjoyable vacations on site, simply relaxing in the park. Within less than 30 minutes, in the Forêt de Saoû, the Pre-Alpes or the Vercors, one can find magnificent hikes in open nature. The area is also well suited for lovers of old villages, Provencal landscapes and local markets where sympathetic farmers sell their products, fruits, vegetables, olive oil, garlic, truffles, goat cheese..., with a chanting accent. For the sports oriented, biking, running, climbing, golf, horseback riding, adventure rides, are available year-round in the area and it's easy to rent bicycles if you haven't brought yours.

Crest

Visit the region's many old villages, often perched on hilltops, charming little towns with artists, small shops, bistros and unassuming restaurants. A bit further out, at about 1 hour and 15 minutes, the "old town" of Lyon and the Pope's Palace of Avignon, both offer world-heritages sightseeing, together with the joyful opportunities of these bursting cities. In the summer, the Festival of Avignon hosts exceptional cultural events and concerts are also widely available in the area. Within 40 minutes, visit also some of the famous wine makers of the Rhône Valley, at Tain l' Hermitage (Crozes Hermitage) and the surroundings wineries (Cornas, Saint Joseph…). Stop in the many wineries, on the road towards Die, about 30 minutes from Vincenti, and taste the famous Clairette, a delightfully light sparkling white wine and about an hour to the South, discover the gentle hills of the Nyonsais, with its many lavender fields and its great variety of red wines, produced there since the Romans. If you need to celebrate a special event and love gastronomy, the famous Restaurant Pic in Valence, at 30 minutes, has been awarded 3 stars on the Michelin Guide.

"Everything you need for a relaxing holiday"

We stayed here for two weeks. The gite was fully equipped with everything we needed and was very tastefully decorated. The large garden, pool and tennis court allowed all of us the space to relax. Lovely location too. I really recommend Le Colombier to everyone, particularly those with young children.
