Further south, the Drôme boasts lovely Romanesque villages such as Mirmande and Le Poët-Laval which offer the first glimpse of the sights and smells of the south with its lavender, olives and vines. Indeed, your Flower campsite in the Drôme makes a great base for exploring the lavender fields, olive groves and vineyards of South-Eastern France.

Camping in the wooded hills and valleys of the Drôme
To the north of our campsites in the Drôme extends the Drôme des Collines, an area of gently rolling, wooded hills and valleys that runs from the Dauphiné and the Vercors down to the confluence of the rivers Rhône and Isère. Characterised by woodland, vineyards and orchards, it marks the transition between the Alps and the plain of the Rhône valley and Provence. At the edge of the Rhône valley in the northern Drôme don’t miss the chance to marvel at the fertile imagination of Cheval the Postman and his life’s work, the Palais Idéal in Hauterives.
Fine wine and food in the Drôme
Starting out from one of our campsites in the Drôme, food lovers should take the Route des Vins, which snakes through the vineyards of Tain-l’Hermitage, stopping off to taste the local wines of Hermitage, Crozes Hermitage and Saint Joseph. Set on terraced hillsides, the vineyards of the Coteaux de l'Hermitage are the very epitome of the Rhône valley landscape. And during your stay at a campsite in the Drôme don’t miss the chance to taste some of the local culinary specialities, which include the Picodon, Bleu du Vercors and Sassenage cheeses, Dauphiné ravioli, Royans walnuts and, of course, Montélimar nougat.
The Drôme and the foothills of the Vercors
To the east of the Drôme, in the foothills of the mountains, the plains rise slowly to the Vercors mountain range where spectacular roads pass through caves carved out of the stone cliffs. These roads, running at dizzying heights above the valleys below with tunnels cutting through the tallest peaks, are best experienced by car or motorbike at Combe-Laval, the Col de la Bataille or Les Petits Goulets.
The mid-range mountains of the Drôme
One of our campsites in the Drôme makes the ideal base for trying out its small, family-oriented ski resorts like Le Col de Rousset, which offers 29 downhill slopes and a small cross-country ski area in winter and a wealth of paths and trails for walking, mountain biking and horse riding in the summer. So don’t be surprised, a camping holiday in the Drôme offers a whole range of activities to pick and choose from depending on your taste and the season.
