Trip around La Lance mountain & Dieulefit

Montagne de La Lance

When approaching Nyons from the south-eastern part of the Tricastin region, you cannot miss the long, crescent curved Montagne de la Lance (Spear Mountain). If you choose to drive that way, we will go as far as Dieulefit (literally : God made it).

After a gentle start along the Eygues Valley, we will leave at Les Pilles, taking the turn to Condorcet and Saint Ferréol, and going up the river Lez valley before the proper climbing to Valouse Pass and Autuche Mountain wooded versants.

Valouse pass is facing South. But we are going to take the way down eastwards, as far as Montjoux, then leave the direct road in order to divert to Dieulefit, the home of ceramics and pottery : once there, you can visit the Maison de la Céramique (House of Ceramics) or ceramics and pottery craftsmen’workshops or the well-known Demeure aux figures (Dwelling House with Faces) of Roland Dutel, an out of the beaten tracks local artist.

Then back to Nyons along the western versant of the Lance mountain, across Roche Saint Secret, Montbrison (an ancient Gallo-Roman site) and Rousset les Vignes. The fertile valley is cultivated with vineyards, orchards, lavender fields and olive groves.

Towards the end of the excursion, we will also enjoy the D538 nicest view over Venterol.
