In many ways, the Drôme resembles the Ardèche. It might be a bit rougher. The Alps and Provence are both part of the beautiful Drôme, which provides impressive contrasts. Deep purple lavender fields, immense fruit orchards, vineyards that yield a beautiful harvest on the most impossible slopes. There are renowned wineries where you can taste the best Côtes duRhône wines. Due to its relatively low altitude, the weather in the Drôme is a good sun holiday destination from early spring to late autumn.
