This is the region that stretches from central France right down to Provence. At Healey Fox we have chosen what we consider to be the best part of this region to work in. All of our properties are in Drôme which is the department bordering Provence and sharing so many of the attributes of Provence that it is often referred to as Drôme-Provençal. But unlike much of Provence, Drôme offers a peaceful environment away from tourists, and houses in Drôme represent excellent value for money.
In Drôme you will be surrounded by olive groves, lavender fields and vineyards. Quiet roads will take you to medieval perched villages and amongst this gentle landscape you will find the occasional dramatic waterfall tumbling down from the mountains. A property in Drôme will give you access to all this beauty in, what remains, a relatively undiscovered corner of France..
Nyons, Dielulefit and Montelimar are the nearest towns to most of our properties. Nyons being renowned for its olives and olive oil production and Montelimar being famous for its almond nougat. Apart from these gourmet delights Nyons is delightfully situated on the river and has lovely cafés surrounding its tree lined squares, the shops are all under the cover of its stone arcades so you can shop in the shade and when you feel energetic you can climb to the Chateau which crowns the town. Montelimar is often referred to as the 'Portes de Provence' and has lovely little squares, narrow pedestrian streets and altogether an air of peacefulness that is unusual in a town, plus the tempting smell of the honeyed nougat pervading the air.
Access to the Drôme is via Marseille, Lyons or Avignon airport or TGV station. The nearest being Avignon which is only an hour away, Marseille and Lyon both being approximately 2 hours away. This makes the Drôme not the quickest department in France to access but does account for its lack of tourists and good value houses. I can certainly assure you that it is worth making the journey to get to this delightful corner of France and buying a property in Drôme is a very attractive idea.
