Impossible to resist the charm of this region: the Drôme Provençale! Those who discover it for the first time are quickly overwhelmed by the authenticity of the landscapes and white stone villages, typical of south-eastern France. Those who already know it never tire of it: “this is our little piece of paradise ”, they often say...

Transition region between Dauphiné and Provence, located at the foot of Mont Ventoux, the Drôme Provençale clearly marks its penchant for the south. It is here that the climate changes and becomes Mediterranean, that the sun gives this frank light, that the mistral sweeps the clouds to give the sky that blue dear to painters. Finally, it is here that the landscapes take on the purple of lavender, the green of olive trees, the air embalms with Mediterranean scents and vibrates with the song of cicadas. Whether it's the time of a stay, or even more, Drôme Provençale is alive!


Grignan castle

In the heart of the Provençal Drôme, overlooking plains and mountains, the castle of Grignan is built on a rocky promontory overlooking the village. Witness of Renaissance architecture and French classicism, the building has had an eventful history. A fortified castle mentioned in the 11th century, it was transformed during the Renaissance into a prestigious pleasure residence by the Adhémar family. In the 17th century, the Marquise de Sévigné stayed there with her daughter Françoise-Marguerite.

Listed as a historic monument in 1993 and labeled Musée de France, the Château de Grignan offers visitors precious testimonies on the art of living at different times. The Château de Grignan, awarded the Musée de France label in 2002, is a unique place in the Drôme thanks to the quality of its collections and its decorations . Works and works of art adorn the apartments and reception rooms on the three levels of the large residence. The various decorative sets reflect a place enriched by the contribution of successive families.

The Friends of Vieux Poët-Laval association, created in 1926, was able to stop the looting of an abandoned village before reintroducing the material and human resources necessary for its resurrection.

Today's Poët-Laval is one of the hilltop villages of Drôme Provençale.

Gigondas is a small picturesque village in the Haut Vaucluse between Orange and Vaison-la-Romaine. The vineyards extend to the foot of the village, dominated by the high hills and the white ridges of the Dentelles de Montmirail.


The territory of the municipality has delivered many artefacts from the Roman era at random plowing or during archaeological excavations. The name Gigondas evokes Joconditas which means joy and joy in Latin. But it is more likely from a Roman landowner "Jucundus" who owned the "villa Jocondatis".

Located on the banks of the Ouvèze, in a hilly landscape, Vaison, which officially became Vaison-La-Romaine in 1924, enjoys great renown with its 7 hectares of Gallo-Roman excavations.


In addition to antiquity, the city has a very diversified heritage thanks to an ancient occupation which gave rise to displacements of habitats between the valley (right bank) and the rocky outcrop (left bank) depending on whether the periods were troubled or at peace.

Traces of occupation date back to 10,000 BCE. In the 1st century BC, Rome granted the honorary title of federated city to Vasio Julia Vocontiorum which gradually spread out in the valley, in particular on the right bank, until it covered 60 to 70 hectares in the 2nd century AD.

From 1274 to 1791, Vaison was part of the papal state known as Comtat Venaissin. In the 19th century, the city gradually resumed its place in the valley above the ancient buildings.
