Discover the Drôme region with its undulating landscapes where grapevines and lavender grow. In these little villages built with stone, life follows the pace of the Provençal markets brimming with fragrances and colours.
Discover Drôme and its mountains, at the gateway to the Alps, which are a great playground for hikers and fans of outdoor sports and skiing once winter arrives. Head off on a walk around the listed Jarjatte Valley or attempt to climb the Rocher Rond, the highest point in the region.
Created within a 50-hectare estate, the Terre Vivante ecological gardens are nestled in the French Alps between Vercors and Dévoluy. As you walk along, you will see vegetable gardens, ponds, thickets, meadows and more, which the gardeners managed to establish in poor-quality soil despite the harsh mountain climate.

With 2453 metres height, the Round Rock is the highest summit of the Drôme.

Here at the heart of the French Alps on Trièves plateau, nestled between the steep cliffs of Vercors and the summits of the Ecrins mountain range, lies the oldest organic whiskey distillery in the world. Since 2009, founder Frédéric Revol has been developing the distillery’s approach, which is rooted in the local microclimate. Welcome to Domaine des Hautes Glaces.
In the southern part of the Isère region and on the doorstep of Provence, Trièves is one of the last preserved lands of Dauphiné. Described by French author Giono as “a cloister of mountains”, the area is a rare preserved space in the Alps where landscapes and villages have been maintained in a remarkable state of conservation.
The museum itself is situated in Mens’ historic quarter, retracing the history of those who shaped this land.
