Drome Provencale

Focus on our Independent Walking Holiday in the Drôme Provencale:

New for 2013 "Drôme Provencale: Perched Villages & Indulgence" is a unique linear trail through a beautiful landscape of rolling hills and craggy summits. The walk traverses the Drôme Provencale from north to south, exploring varied and beautiful landscapes linked by several stunning historic perched villages. Starting in Crest in the Drôme Valley you’ll pass through scented lavender fields, secluded woods, vines of the Cote du Rhone and finally the olive groves of Nyons in the Baronnies.
Relaxing in the evenings is your time for indulgence. You'll stay in 7 different guest houses, all are delightful, quality guest houses in historic properties which have been beautifully renovated and whilst at Poet en Laval, you'll stay in a 3 star hotel. 5 of the guest houses have swimming pools where you can relax after your day's walking before enjoying the local fine cuisine.
You can read more about the 1st day of the holiday in our blog here.

Olive Groves of Nyons

The Olive Groves of Nyons

On Day 7 of the Independent Walking Holiday in the Drome Provencale you will witness the famous olive groves of Nyons.
Nyons is the gateway to les Baronnies, the rugged area of the Pre-Alpes to the North and East. The valleys are sheltered from the Mistral wind and ideal for olive growing. The area is the northern-most olive-growing region in the world and olives have been cultivated here since aound the 4th century B.C.
La perle noire or ‘the black pearl’, as Tanche olives are also called, have large pits and a thick, meaty flesh. They can be brined, dry-cured or crushed to make a delectable spread known as tapenade and produce some of the most refined olive oil.
