Specialities of Montélimar

In the heart of the Drôme Provençale, Montélimar is a town full of activities. 2ème Montélimar, a town in the Drôme and only an hour and a half from Lyon and Marseille, is the ideal place to get away from it all for a weekend.

and its surroundings

Montélimar is also the ideal starting point for visiting the hilltop villages of its conurbation. Marsanne, Puygiron, La Laupie, Saint-Gervais-sur-Roubion, Sauzet and Savasse all seem to be suspended above the valleys that surround them. Nestling on the hills, these villages are well worth discovering, both for their unique locations and for the bucolic atmosphere that characterises them.
