Exploring Les Baronnies on foot, horseback, by bike or kayak
It won’t take you long to realize that Les Barronies is a natural playground unlike any other, perfect for outdoor activity enthusiasts. Set off from Buis-les-Baronnies for a hike around le rocher du Saint-Julien, admiring en route the views of Mont Ventoux and Les Baronnies. Or follow the route through the gorges d’Ubrieux and admire the wonderful Mediterranean flora, olive trees and vineyards along the way. Fancy trying a water sport? Go on an aquatic hike to try some canyoning, two activities offered by local clubs. It’s a great way to explore the canyons around Nyons, Cornillon, Remuzat and La Motte-Chalancon
A camping trip to Buis-les-Baronnies: suggestions for cultural excursions
The village of Buis-les-Baronnies prides itself on having many beautiful heritage sites, evidence of its trading past and development during the Middle Ages. The first thing you should do is visit the ramparts, built between the 13th and 14th centuries and the Tour du Safre, which was built at the same time. Also worth admiring are the place des Arcades, Notre-Dame de Nazareth church and the chapelle des Ursulines. But the easiest thing to do is just randomly explore the streets and lanes and soak up the village’s gentle Provençal lifestyle.
Gourmet holidays in Buis-les-Baronnies
It won’t take you long to realize that the lime tree is very much the star of the show in Buis-les-Baronnies. The cultivation of lime trees in Buis-les-Baronnies dates back to the 19th century; since then, their reputation has continued to flourish... You can eat the tree’s blossom, sap, fruit and leaves or opt for a large pot of lime honey. You should also treat yourself to some Nyons black olives and oil, as well as some Picodon, a round cheese made from unpasteurized goat’s milk. For pudding, or to slip into your suitcase as a crunchy souvenir of your holidays in Buis-les-Barronie, opt for some “croquettes aux amandes,” (almond biscotti), a typical local biscuit.
