Agency info


The agency

Location of the agency

Based in the olive province, the approachable agency "So Provence, So Alps!" is located in a territory rich in colours and scents. The destination promotes the Baronnies Provençales, a regional park stretching from the Drôme up to the Hautes-Alpes. It also includes Drôme Provençale and Vaucluse regions, guarded by the giant of Provence: the legendary Mont Ventoux.

Multi-themed holidays

Whether you are in need of a tough and sporty experience, a taste of the local cuisine or simply looking for pure relaxation (or all three at once!), we offer a break tailored to your desires. Individuals, couples, families or groups, there are activities for all. You set your own pace, budget and the time you want to devote to us: one day-trip, weekend, short breaks or tours of several days. On each stay, reliable partners assist us to validate and secure the routes. Coaches and professional guides are selected according to their skills and knowledge of the area. Finally, hosts and restaurateurs meet the quality, comfort, and aesthetics we want: "eco" without compromise. We never work alone; we combine all skills to provide the best experience!

Virtuous tourism

We believe in responsible and sustainable local tourism. Without over-promoting or pushing a "green marketing" of our products, we strive to discover and display the best the territory and its people have to offer.

Destination info

The tiny part of France we promote is still quite unknown… yet the treasures it offers are incredible. Protected from the crowds of the French Riviera or those from the Alpine ski resorts, it is a semi-secret destination intended for the naturally inquisitive.

Following the Rhône River from the north, everything suddenly changes in Montelimar. The warmer Mediterranean climate and lavender fields suddenly appear: it is the Drôme Provençale. If you continue towards the Baronnies: the fields of olive trees will emerge dotted on the landscape and the cicadas will set a relaxing ambience for your stay.

Coming from the south, you will be surrounded by lush verdant countryside. Here, Provence changes into an Alpine panorama. When passing the doors of Nyons, Vaison-la-Romaine or Sisteron, the Mont Ventoux or the Baronnies Provençales mountain ranges will all keep you company. Natural parks also await you: sunny day and starry nights and a real breath of fresh air ... Maybe the slice of heaven you’d hoped to find on holiday?
