About Us

We are a small, family business, specialising solely in the Drome region of France, including the Vercors national park and northern Provence.

We love this region of France, it's totally unspoilt and off the tourist trail - not much English is spoken locally. The mountains, the sunshine, and the wonderful food and wine make the Drome a heaven on earth.

We are very fortunate to have teamed up with Philippe, he loves the area, and you will find his depth and breadth of knowledge outstanding.

Edith Maurin

Edith lives in a tiny hamlet half-way up a mountain, and knows the region like the back of her hand.

A qualified walking and mountain biking guide, she works mainly in France, Spain and Italy, and is a talented linguist. Edith's warmth and mature leading style combined with a deep knowledge of flora and fauna has won her a loyal following, and we are delighted to be able to work with her.
