Highlights

The most southerly department in the Rhône-Alpes region, Drôme is a beautiful mix of colour and contrasting landscapes. To the north lies the Drôme des Collines, an undulating agricultural expanse, while historic monuments dot the department's western fringes and include ancient abbeys such as Lioncel and Valcroissant. The area also encompasses the southern half of the Vercours mountain range, home to villages such as La Chapelle-en-Vercors and Vassieux-en-Vercours, where history buffs can gain insight into the Resistance fighters who operated from here.
