unusual and original

this summer
One day to get out of the ordinary

Summer is the time to get off the beaten path and try new activities and discoveries! Get out of your routine and don’t be afraid to go on unusual visits or outings.

Night visit:
at an artist's home

Vincent Tournebize is an artist, a dreamer, an idealist and a lover of femininity. He opens the doors of his workshop in the heart of the Drôme des Collines, to transport you into his universe.

This visit could be one of the most traditional… except that in the summer, Vincent lays out hundreds of luminous lights everywhere and gives you a visit by lantern light.
One word: magical. These statues of women dance in the candlelight, chills guaranteed!

The Temple of Femininity at the Grand-Serre.
Visit on Wednesday, July 13, August 17 and September 7 from 8:30 to 10:00 pm

Scents of a soap factory

Your sense of smell will guide you to Delphine’s quiet and family workshop to discover the conception of solid soaps and shampoos made with natural products.
Delphine will explain her journey and what led her to become a soap maker.

Les savons de la Galaure in Hauterives
Visit every Wednesday from July 13 to August 31 10am-12:30pm and 1:30pm-4pm (one visit every hour)

Flying at 30 meters high near the Ideal Palace of the Postman Cheval: a dream come true! The captive flight lasts about 5 minutes: the time to enjoy the climb, to take pictures and to come down quietly.
The captive flights are suspended in this month of August, much too hot and windy for this type of flight.
They will resume this fall and winter with some nice surprises!
