Located between the Alps and the Massif Central, the Drôme is a vast territory offering a great diversity of landscapes. The steep but majestic reliefs of the Vercors contrast with the gentle hills of the Provençal Baronnies. High limestone cliffs, deep gorges, fields of lavender, vines and olive trees, oak groves, pine forests and scrubland, come and discover this exceptional natural heritage. Depending on your requirements and your needs, HomeCamper has various hosts in store for you that are going to be able to make you enjoy your stay like never before. Lovers of vanlife, roadtrips, and outdoor camping will be delighted!
The Drôme takes its name from the river which crosses the department from North to South. The landscapes offered by this river are exceptional, such as the Claps de Luc, the Ramières nature reserve or the Trois Becs. Water activities, such as kayaking or canoeing, allow you to explore the Drôme and discover its many landscapes. The Drôme is also part of the Provence and its lavender fields which extend as far as the eye can see. The town of Nyons has a particular heritage, particularly that of the Black Olive and its fruity oil. While passing through the Drôme Provençale, we also advise you to stop in the beautiful villages of La Garde Adhémar, Le Poêt-Laval and finally Montbrun les Bains!
The Drôme is also represented by the Vercors regional nature park. Exceptional natural sites such as the Lapiaz desert, the Rousset pass, the white Draye cave or the Vernaison gorges, the beauty of the landscapes and its preserved fauna and flora make the Vercors park a unique and unmissable place.
The Drôme is also a department filled with history and culture, where buildings are waiting to be visited, such as the castle of Grignan or the castle of the Adhémar. The village of Mirmande is an absolute must see, a typical village in the Drôme where the old stones tell you their history. Another important visit, especially for all gourmands: the city of Montélimar and its famous nougat!
If you wish to stay in the Drôme and enjoy all the outdoor activities available, we recommend that you visit this region of France between May and October. Avoid the months of December to February, as these are the coolest months of the year, and there are not as many activities.
Whether you own a caravan, a motorhome, or a van, get ready for a roadtrip filled with unique camping and sightseeing experiences!
