Le Hameau de la Savouillane


The Hameau de la Savouillane is situated in Buis-les-Baronnies, in Drôme provençale, 50 km (about 30 miles) north-east of Avignon and 100 km (about 60 miles) south-east of Montélimar.
Buis-les-Baronnies is located in the heart of the Regional Nature Park of the Baronnies provençales, to the north of Mont Ventoux; the Ouvèze river runs through it. The landscape surrounding it is typical of the southern Alpine foothills, with medium-high valleys (500 to 800 metres, i.e. from 1,600 to 2,600 feet) in blue marl dominated by east-west-oriented limestone ridges whose altitude varies from 1,000 to 1,850 metres (3,300 to 6,000 feet). The Baronnies have been a land of refuge and resistance throughout history and are still maintaining today a tradition of hospitality, animated by the same free spirit as of yore.
