Go on a camping holiday in Nyons along the banks of the river Eygues in the land of lavender and olive trees and wind down completely surrounded by nature in the heart of Drôme Provençale.
When you go on a camping holiday in Nyons you will discover a corner of paradise right in the heart of Drôme Provençale.
It is nicknamed the ‘Little Nice’ of the Drôme because of its microclimate (lots of sunshine, great temperatures and no wind) which guarantees you happy, sun-drenched holidays.
Located at the foot of the Baronnies Provençales mountain range, the town of Nyons nestles between mountains and offers wonderful varied landscapes that combine the best of the Mediterranean and the mountains.
It was listed as a tourist resort in 2010 and features among the 100 most beautiful detours in France. The ideal destination for your holidays.
The region is known for its vineyards and olive groves and has been awarded the label ‘site remarquable de goût’. You will have lots of opportunities to try some of the local black Tanche olives or the wonderfully local fruity olive oil. Will you be able to pick out the different aromas and flavours: green apple, fresh grass, hazelnut or almond? Connoisseurs take note !
And if you love old stones and architecture, the town of Nyons has some great surprises in store for you. Check out the Randonne Tower that overlooks the town, the Roman bridge that was listed as a historic monument in 1925 and that spans the river Eygues ending up in the Place des Arcades where you can relax over a glass of wine on a cool, shady terrace.
Nyons, with its lovely mild climate, is particularly suitable for activities in nature. You will find more than 400 kilometres of signposted trails giving you the chance to discover the landscapes, the colours and the perfumes of the region. And for those who are not so mad about hiking or mountain biking there’s no need to panic. You’ll find lots of other sports activities to enjoy in the region: climbing, via ferrata, canyoning, horse riding, paragliding!
