Pays Diois

Aux sources de la Drôme,  Pays Diois has come to benefit from  Alpine influences and Mediterranean influences to forge for itself a unique and contrasting character. These multiple facets combine to make the Diois a pays which can stir your senses.

Zoom On...

Pleasures of water
After the winter and the snowmelt, the river Drôme takes its beautiful blue-toned colour and offers some excellent conditions to practice white water sports. Impetuous during the spring, the Drôme is ideal to do canoe, rafting or other canyoning… In summer, it becomes calm, source of coolness and relaxation. Families' delight: slides and natural basins, canyons and small gorges allow a playful approach to the river.
The Lavender
The fine lavender, typical from the Pays Diois, opens up on lands situated between 500 and 1500 meters of altitude and blooms in July. It’s in the Haut Diois (around Valdrôme, La Motte Chalancon and the Roanne valley) that you will find fine lavender fields and often some ‘wild’ lavenders, remains of former farming.
