Welcome

Like the Peacock butterfly it is named after, Les Paons du Jour bed and breakfast enjoys a privileged situation in the heart of Diois country in the Drôme near Die. Breathe the fresh, clean air of the magnificent Vercorsregional natural park, alive with wildlife. The guest house is located just 500 m from the medieval village of Châtillon-en-Diois, accessible on foot by a pleasant path along the banks of the river (fishing 300 m away in the Bez (no kill) or in the Drôme). Surrounded by unspoilt countryside and superb mountain scenery, you can make the most of the direct access to the GR hiking paths and to a fitness circuit along the river.

Giving directly onto the great outdoors, Les Paons guest house has been constructed with great respect for the planet. Situated in the Vercors regional park, it shares the values of : « The more we value the land, the more we can be at one with it and work towards its sustainable development ».

Evelyn and Michel, both nature enthusiasts, warmly welcome you to their bed and breakfast, Les Paons du Jour, and will be delighted to share their world, where ornithology holds an important place.

An L.P.O (Ligue Protection des Oiseaux- Society for the Protection of Birds) refuge, this eco-friendly and natural guest house was entirely « tailor-made » starting with a wood frame and using the latest eco-construction techniques : wood wool insulation, optimised thermal performance, sound proofing, local douglas fir wood, solvent-free paint, green roof… Here, easy but essential gestures are employed : composting, building of various shelters for small animals, preservation of the surrounding meadows, a visual feast…

Discover the abundant biodiversity on our doorstep. Raise your eyes to catch a glimpse of the various local birds of prey (vultures, golden eagles, peregrine falcons) in their orchestrated circling and swooping. Closer by, wagtails and northern wheatears flutter. And nearer still, flowers, insects, frogs and toads, appear and change with the seasons. And with the microscope that you can borrow from Evelyne and Michel, you can observe a world invisible to the naked eye, appreciate the subtilities of nature but also its fragility.

When evening falls, sit back, relax and enjoy the silence. Far from all light sources, the sky above Châtillon-en-Diois is perfect for star-gazing.

Comfortably installed in the garden hammocks, the show can begin :
