Your days will be full of surprises when you enjoy your outdoor holiday at La Source du Jabron, our family-friendly campsite with pool. You do not need to travel far from the campsite to discover Drôme Provençale in all its splendour: Dieulefit, Parc du Vercors, Parc des Baronnies, and listed sites among the most beautiful villages in France.
The pretty Drôme village of Nyons sits in the Baronnies regional nature park and boasts a rich historical and cultural heritage. Famous for its olive grove, which is a listed Site Remarquable du Goût (outstanding flavour site), this village is also well known for its soaps, old windmills, lavender fields and listed historical monuments. Make sure you visit Scourtinerie when you stop in Nyons.
Considered to be the main gateway to the Provence region, Montélimar has a reputation for its nougat which is famous around the world. While exploring the town, your footsteps will inevitably be drawn to the Palais des Bonbons et du Nougat. A family trip to the Pierrelatte crocodile farm is also a memorable outing. And for those who love history and new experiences, you will enjoy a visit to the Montélimar chateau which was built by the Adhémar family.
Poët-Laval, Poët-Celard and Pont de Barret are among some of the best sites to visit in Drôme Provençale and guarantee an unforgettable experience. Each of these hilltop villages exudes charm and authenticity. Brimming with history, they take you on a trip back in time while also offering a breath-taking natural setting.
The village of Dieulefit is a perfect blend of craftsmanship and gastronomy. With the Maison de la Céramique (ceramics centre) and 30 potters’ studios, there are plenty of ways to explore this artform including through museum exhibitions and even pottery courses. Dieulefit is also known for its gastronomy, with its star product being a small goat cheese bearing the Picodon Dieulefit label. Try it for yourself!
While holidaying in the Drôme region, you will hear people talking about a must-try food in the Dieulefit region: the Picodon. This goat cheese reflects the region and is eaten warm or cold as an aperitif. Drôme Provençale is a sun-drenched region where sweet, delicious apricots are grown. Visit the orchards to learn more about the varieties, including the Orangé de Provence. Schedule yourself a gourmet walk with friends and family...
Located in the highest part of the village in the heart of Drôme Provençale, Grignan chateau is a fortified castle that was transformed into a sumptuous pleasure palace by the Adhémar family.
Suze-la-Rousse chateau is equally stunning as a medieval fortress that has lost none of its charm. This military structure is today home to the wine museum and Université du Vin, an internationally-renowned school of wine (oenology courses available).
These two sites organise a large number of cultural events (theatre, music, etc.) throughout the year.
Mont Ventoux is a listed Outstanding Natural Site and is visible from a great distance. Nicknamed the Giant of Provence, it offers unobstructed views of the Rhône Valley, Baronnies regional park and Vaucluse plateau. Reaching an altitude of 1,912 metres, this legendary mountain is famous as a stage of the Tour de France and offers an impressive hill climb for cycling enthusiasts. It is also an outstanding area for outdoor sports (hiking, mountain biking, trail running, rock climbing, etc.).
Staying in Comps, in the Dieulefit region, offers you a great opportunity to learn about the AOC Grignan-les-Adhémar Côtes du Rhône vineyards during stunning walks through nature and vineyard tours. Learn more about the history of this unique terroir with its hidden riches.
