Things to Do in Valence, Rhone-Alpes

For a special occasion try the Michelin rated three star Pic restaurant owned by an internally renowned chef, Anne Sophie Pic.

                                                                5 of 5
                                                                We spent a lovely week in this beautifully restored house - the photo book showing the rebuilding of both the main house and the gite was a really interesting bonus! The property is really well equipped and comfortable with a beautiful garden that offers a lot of privacy and helpful owners who are discrete but friendly. It's a very peaceful location but just a few steps to the bakery and the little local supermarket which means you could just sit and enjoy the garden (and the pool if that's your thing) if you didn't feel like going far. It's a short drive to decent local restaurants (we enjoyed La Pangee at La Baume Cornillane) - be sure to check out all the business cards in the little dish near the TV for pointers to restaurants, fruit and vegetables direct from the producers and other local businesses. We'd have no hesitation in recommending this house to anyone looking for somewhere that offers a bit of peace and quiet.
