The Region

Things to do during your bed & breakfast stay in Châtillon-en-Diois

 

Back to nature !

• The Natural Reserve of Les Hauts Plateaux du Vercors,

• The Rocher de Combeau (1593 m) internationally renowned for its unusual geological form.

• The Cirque d’Archiane, gateway and exit of the unmissable Traversée des Hauts Plateaux du Vercors, the path

  across the Vercors High plateaux. Ibex, chamois, vultures, golden eagles, are among the many species that live here.

• The Claps and the Saut de la Drôme : around 1442, probably following an earthquake, a huge landslide resulted

  causing a massive bank of limestone to break up into gigantic blocks. The scar is clearly visible today : by falling into

  the Drôme, the rocky chaos interrupted the course of the river, changing its flow and creating pools and waterfalls great

  for bathing.

• The Gorges des Gâts (which can be crossed on the D 539), a refreshing place with steep cliffs, superb canyons and

  vegetation stubbornly clinging to the rocks.

• The Sucettes de Borne, a beautiful geological curiosity easily accessible by a pleasant path. The setting is

  magnificent.

Die, an attractive old town in a superb mountain setting with the ochre, grey and pink cliffs of the Glandasse mountain.

  Every Wednesday and Saturday, it holds the largest provençal market in the region.
