Montelimar & Ardeche France
Can anyone suggest foodie things to do and visit in the area and also restaurants in these areas for lunch. I am after foodie/ slash wine ideas.
Also are there any lavender farms in the Ardeche region on the way to Le Puy en Velay?
Montélimar itself is a town one drives through, not really a base.
Besides Hotel Faurie in St. Agreve which I have already recommended to you in another thread...
the restaurant of hotel du Levant in Meyras. Very classic and good, and very reasonably priced. The maître d is a performance artist.
Last September we drove from Ardèche to Le Puy en Velay, did not notice any lavender. But lavender has a very short season, from late June to mid July usually, which may be why I did not see a single flower.
Do not forget to report back. Cheers.
