For the food lover, colourful markets in nearby villages and towns offer local produce, cheeses, cured meats, seafood, fresh country breads... Fill your basket with honey, picodons (local goat cheese specialty), virgin olive oil, vine ripened tomatoes, garlic braids from area farmers. Buy herbes de Provence, lavender essence or nougat made the traditional way, to take home.
From the fresh ingredients create your own gourmet meal or indulge in the hospitality of the many restaurants in the area from rustic to world famous.
The Côtes du Rhône wines of Grignan les Adhemar, Hermitage, Châteauneuf du Pape, Tavel, Vacqueyras, Gigondas, to name just a few, are a short distance away. Enjoy wine tastings at your leisure.
Nature's palette of lavender, sunflowers and poppies are of exceptional beauty in season. The creative arts are a feast for the eyes. Visit ateliers and shops of the potters, painters, glass blowers, silversmiths, woodcarvers and silk painters.
For refreshing physical activity play tennis, golf or join the locals for a game of boules, swim, hike, go horseback riding, bicycle or just walk the cobble stoned laneways of our medieval villages.
Enjoy the rich cultural life of the area, art galleries, concerts, festivals, special events. Visit monuments of 2000 years of civilization, châteaux, castles, museums, Roman ruins, Romanesque churches, monasteries...
There is private parking at the Petite Maison. We recommend to rent a car since the area has so much to see which is off the beaten track. There is a bus running several times a day connecting the neighbouring villages. The nearest train station is in Montelimar, 15 km to the west.
