La Garde-Adhémar

Some twenty kilometres south of Montélimar, the white stones of La Garde-Adhémar dazzle in the Drôme Provençale sunshine. From the top of its chalky outcrop, the village, which has kept ramparts, traces of the castle and old houses from its medieval structure, offers an unobstructed view of the Rhône Valley and the Vivarais Mountains.
