Mother Nature on your doorstep!

There are endless possibilities when it comes to activities in the Drôme due to the fact you are surrounded by mountains and water (Vercors and the hills of the Ardèche, the Rhône and Isère rivers). This is especially the case for Valence and the surrounding area which is ideal for a sporty outdoor holiday!

The lush green environment is the perfect place for a family bike ride or mountain biking for the more daring, nature walks with younger family members and hiking expeditions for more experienced walkers, outdoor activities such as rock climbing, paragliding, paddle-boarding or water-skiing! The possibilities are endless!

Enjoy the superb natural environment here!

Take the plunge!

The new water park in Valence is in the very pleasant Epervière Park and has been open since December 2019. The whole family will enjoy the four separate areas inside the complex:

A pool area covering almost 1,000 m² with a 25-metre-long pool, waterfall and 60 m² paddling pool with water games for the children and two slides; a balneotherapy-fitness area devoted to wellness; a fun area with thrilling surf simulator covering 108 m² and 9,000 m² of outdoor space devoted to swimming, relaxing and playing.

An unmissable venue for a great day out with friends or family.
