If the great outdoors is your passion you couldn’t pick a more perfect holiday destination, with activities such as rambling, climbing and skiing in abundance. Whether you prefer to go it alone or take advantage of knowledgeable local guides, there is something for everyone. Lus provides an excellent base from which to explore this relatively undiscovered and breathtakingly beautiful corner of France.
Since 2008, Lus has become part of the Parc Naturel du Vercors and the valley of La Jarjatte is a Natura 2000 site, both of which recognise the regions importance as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The flora and fauna found in this region are thanks to the unique fusion of Alpine and Provencal weather systems.
If you fancy a more leisurely pursuit and enjoy a glass of wine then why not take an excursion into the Die valley and sample the locally produced wines of which Clairette de Die sparkling is a speciality. Southwest you can follow the wine route towards Orange passing vineyards every few miles where you can try the popular Côtes du Rhône and Vinsobres wines and also stock up on delicious olive oils.
For a change of weather and scenery you can always take a 30 minute “migration” south to the borders of Provencal territory, where the landscape becomes more undulating and temperatures rise by several degrees. There is also Isère to the north and the Hautes Alpes to the southeast, all of which have their own unique identity.
