Self Guided

Our self guided walking holidays offer complete flexibility - you can choose how much walking or sightseeing you want to do, all at your own pace around the Drome Valley and Vercors National Park. Plus, you can arrive and depart on any day (subject to availability), giving you the chance to take a short break or an extended holiday, or to take advantage of cheap flights or quieter mid-week airports.

Over the years, we have put together a wonderful selection of day walks, covering all levels of difficulty. Using our experience, you can select walks offering great mountain views, rare and beautiful wild flowers, and a vast range of birds and other wildlife. Or you can explore ancient villages, visit the numerous tiny chapels and churches, buildings from Roman times, and much more. You could hire a bike, take a canoe trip down the river, or spend a day touring on horseback, it's all great fun and easy to arrange. Or you could relax by the pool and work on your tan.

Our extensive collection of maps, reference books and walking notes are all at your disposal. What's more, we can provide details of vineyards and wineries to visit, offering free tastings, plus where to find markets and other venues to sample or buy the best local produce. You won't need to do any research or waste any time, we've done all the work for you.

Our standard self guided walking holiday is based on seven night's accommodation, including meals and picnic lunches, staying at La Maison Rose in the heart of our region - a wonderful restored winemaker's house with large en suite bedrooms, swimming pool, English library and stunning views.

To get the most from your holiday, we recommend hiring a car if you are arriving by air or rail.
