Discover the Drôme by bike

Voted "cycling destination 2017", the Drôme is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful regions to organize your next cycling holiday.

During our last field trip, we were dazzled by the red and yellow colours of autumn, but you may prefer the blue of the lavender fields at the beginning of summer, it's up to you! We once again felt the Provençal atmosphere over the kilometres, whether crossing the gorges, plateaux, passes or high-perched villages.

The Drôme offers you a very varied playground, from small easy roads to more sporty and mountainous routes. But don't worry! This region is for everyone at any level and we will adapt this tour to fit your needs. And don't forget that an electric bike can also be your best friend, allowing you to ride on hilly terrain. During your bike trip, you can get away from it all on roads without meeting a soul living in this sumptuous natural setting, walk along the vineyards and lavender fields, or wander through the alleys of the villages.

Like us, after having been "initiated" to this region, you will want to return to discover other aspects of it. So ride and enjoy yourself! Imagine that you’re already there by discovering our example of a bike tour in the Drôme Provençale.

Let the charm of its high-perched villages seduce you

If the landscapes in front of you look like a postcard, it is because you have just entered the Drôme Provençale.

Whatever the season, take your senses on a journey. Close your eyes, breathe in the scents of lavender and thyme, listen to the song of the cicadas and let yourself be wrapped in the gentle and comforting air of the Mediterranean climate.

Admire the architectural heritage, which bears witness to a rich history

If you look up, you will see high-perched villages with incomparable charm, classified among the most beautiful in France. Lose yourself in the alleys, discover the secrets of their history and, as you climb up, the magnificent view you will have before your eyes will leave you speechless. Majestic castles, abbeys and churches also enrich the heritage of this territory.

Enjoy the pleasures of sunny cuisine and fragrant wines

Did you know that the Drôme is the most organic region in France? A generous terroir by nature, the Drôme Provençale offers you a sun-drenched gastronomy and viticulture. You can enjoy local products in many ways: stroll through the Provençal markets to taste the honey, olives from Nyons and nougat from Montélimar, taste the wines of the many regional appellations from their producers, or enjoy a good meal. A true art of living, here you will learn to take the time to enjoy life in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Get passionate about local arts and traditions

The Drôme Provençale is also a land of dedicated and talented men and women. Potters, glassmakers, blacksmiths... these craftsmen and creators will share their works and know-how with you. Unforgettable encounters await you, so don't wait any longer!
