Rémuzat is a village of the Drôme situated in the Les Baronnies Nature Park of Provence, between the Vercors and the Mont Ventoux in the heart of the Drôme Provençale, 28 kilometres from Nyons.
Its landscapes are composed of highlands, orchards and vineyards - the wines produced are the Coteaux-des-Baronnies.
The village dates back to the Middle Ages. It was built at the foot of the Rocher du Caire, a long limestone cliff that allowed for the reintroduction of griffon vultures in 1996, cinereous vultures in 1998 and then, in 2000, an even rarer species, the Egyptian vulture.
The operation was a big success because, today, 3000 individual birds have been counted. Not very fierce and used to the admiration of visitors, it is easy to observe them from the village square or during hikes along the cliff.
Rémuzat's rich surroundings are characterized by an Alpine and a Mediterranean flora and fauna. You should be able to see many different animal species such as the chamois, the vultures and the beavers, and even bats, insects and reptiles.
You can explore Rémuzat in so many different ways; many circuits are offered for hiking, cycling, donkey treks, canyoning along the rivers and torrents and the via ferrata. You can also just simply have a swim or go fishing, paragliding, rock-climbing or spelunking.
Rémuzat is a rainbow of activities and leisure, rich in history and an exceptional natural heritage.
