Fond of traveling abroad and going to meet other cultures, I in turn want to introduce tourists to Drôme and Ardèche. Of German origin, I have been living in Valence for many years.
What do you like about the region?
I love the great variety of landscapes from Vercors to the gates of Provence and the climate.
Tell me about a place that you particularly like here and why?
A place very close to Valence is Crussol with a view of Valence and the troglodyte site at Châteauneuf sur Isère.
What is your favorite activity on the weekends?
Bike ride and hike in Ardèche / Drome. A restaurant with friends.
Your little local culinary pleasure, why and in what setting?
There is a very rich catering for all tastes in Valence, ranging from 3-star PIC to the little bistro on the corner.
Taste chocolate at the Valrhona factory in Tain l'Hermitage and local cheeses such as goat cheese, St. Félicien and Picodon.
Themes proposed by Christiane:
Walk and hike also accessible to blind people
Biking on the Viarhona
Dolce Via and Green Lane
Culture / Museums / Gardens
Visits to villages and caves
Languages spoken: French, English, German
