“Le Lac du Pas des Ondes” is an artificial lake composed of two ponds: one for swimming and the other for fishing. During summer, it is a supervised swimming area. On site, there is also a fitness trail, an educational pond and explanatory signs to discover the fauna and flora.

Pay-to-use site during the summer period.


Rémuzat is located in the southern Pre-Alps, the most complex part of the French Alps. The relief is arranged along two axes: the north/south axis of the Vercors  and east/west axis of Provence. Millions of years ago, geological forces were at work shaping the relief, an area of low and medium altitude reaching its peak at 1392m (Vanige). The cliffs and deep gorges composed of limestone and marlstone are criss-crossed by rivers and torrents.



Near to the village of La Charce, one can find the geological site of “Serre de l’Âne”. It is a rare geological heritage site, and a reference site for scientists around the world. An educational trail runs along the bottom of the cliff allowing visitors to explore these informative facilities.

Taste the local “black pearl”…

With its AOC and AOP labels as well as its “Site Remarquable du Goût” label, Nyons will delight you with its produce every season. For 2000 years, the olive tree has been the foundation for life in Nyons : its oil, black olives of the “Tanche” variety and its beauty and aura will delight you daily.  Over the years, the olive groves have stood alongside our meticulously maintained vineyards. The vineyards of the Drôme Provençale are in the northern part of the southern Côtes du Rhône. Amidst these riches one can find apricot, cherry and peach trees.
