Drome tourist informationwhere to go - what to see - what to do
The Drome is the most southerly department in the Rhone-Alpes region. It has a distinctly Mediterranean feel with fields of lavender, sunflowers, vineyards, lime & olive groves.
Medieval villages and castles dot this beautiful landscape. Those with a sweet tooth may be lured to Montelimar where the delicious almond nougat has been produced since the 17th century.
Montelimar has an interesting medieval centre lined with shops catering for all tastes.
Further south is Nyons, synonymous with olives and apricots. Every imaginable olive-related product is produced here from olive wood & oil to 'tapenade' - a green or black spread of crushed olives and anchovies.
- Lavender Trail - head to the tourist information centre at Baronnies for trails that lead you to aromatic fields of lavender bathed in golden light.
- Grignan castle - heralded as the finest example of Renaissance architecture in southeast France, Grignan castle was declared a national monument in 1993.
- Valence - the clifftop ruins of the 12th century château de Crussol afford stunning views of the Rhone Valley and beyond.
- Dieulefit - known for its Picodon goat cheese best served with the local 'Cotes du Rhone' or 'Coteaux du Tricastin' wines.
