For the active, outdoor person is this a perfect starting point. Hikers and cyclists can take advantage of the location, and study our extensive range of maps and guides.
Every year new mountain-bike routes are opened and for climbers and kayakkers are there plenty of locations nearby.
But last and not least, a good book in the sun or a cooling paddle in the river is certainly not an activity to be overlooked!

The Valley and its surroundings
For high culture is this area probably not at its best, but for those looking for charming and authentic local details, with a rich historical background, there is plenty to discover.
Very old villages, Middle Age towns such as Die and Chatillon, Roman period churches, tiny winding streets and hidden treasures abound.
Markets are abundant too, every wednesday and saturday morning in Die, but many others offer local produce, handicrafts and an interesting visit!
In the summer months Die offers a colourful market every friday evening with music and diverse local entertainment.
Pottery and ceramics is also very popular.
For those who love organic food we can advise a tour from farm to farm, visiting neighbours of ours, starting with David and Lien for fresh yoghurts and cheese, on to Jochen and Oda for organic goats
cheese, then on to Veronica for chutneys and pistous.
Try Nathalie and Flo's herbal oils and cremes made on site from local herbs and flowers.
Finish of with a tasting session at the organic vineyards of Thomas the Clairette producer in Ste. Croix.
