Ideally nestled in the Rhône-Alpes region, in the heart of the Drôme Valley, the town of Crest offers breathtaking landscapes!
Crest welcomes you to its magnificent setting and for good reason. its closest neighbours are the Regional Natural Park of the Mountains of Ardeche to the west, and the Regional Natural Park of the Vercors to the east! All these elements combine to make this place superb for walks and hikes! But the town of Crest itself - be careful not to offend the Crestois, the name of the city is pronounced 'Cré' to rhyme with Hey'! - is most famous for its tower, a remnant of an imposing feudal castle recognised as the tallest keep of France with a height of 52 metres and classified as an Historic Monument. This site is a popular attraction with many organised activities! Climbing to its summit, which offers an unforgettable panorama on the Drôme and its valley, is a must! For the more sporty, it is possible to explore the dungeons (supervised by guides) during the months of July and August! You might also want to consider registering for a Yoga Sound Discovery Workshop, for guaranteed relaxation before a well-deserved rest in your hotel in Crest!
