The Drôme region borders the Rhône river to the west, The Isère river to the north, the Alps to the east and Provençe to the south. The Drôme river runs straight through the middle, east to west and gives rise to magnificent mountains to the North and South with beautiful wilderness areas beyond the farmlands of the Drôme valley.
The region is famed for produce such as asparagus, garlic, walnuts, guinea fowl, tomatoes, peaches, apricots, cherries, lavender, olives and truffles. There are a plethora of local producers of all these products as well as the Picodon cheese, a lightly flavoured goats cheese.
The Drôme boasts vast areas of uncultivated land and forests. Mainly Mediterranean pine, beech and oak these woodlands are the perfect environment for many species of wild mammal and bird. The Vercors national Park, not far from the farm even holds a population of European wolves that have reintroduced themselves from the Alps.
The landscape is also dotted with limestone ruins, many castles and look out posts that date from the medieval age, a time of great social turbulence due to wars between Protestant and Catholic armies. The Drôme itself is know as a staunchly Protestant region. The villages of the Drôme are very picturesque, built out of limestone with narrow winding streets, brightly coloured shutters and an easy going ambiance. This region really exemplifies the rural Fench idyll and 'joie de vivre'.
