About Brigitte de Valence
Bernard and I both grew up in the Drôme Valley and we love this magnificent area of France, with its very diverse landscapes and its Provencal flavor. We have lived a long time in the US and in Switzerland and our large family, which lives in many parts of the world, has kept strong roots in this beautiful region.
Why Brigitte de Valence chose Divajeu
The Domaine de Vincenti has belonged to our family for a very long time: 400 years. Bernard’s father worked here as a farmer from the 50s to 70’s. Since we took over the responsibility for the estate, we gradually restored it and, in 2016, we finished the complete transformation of its former farm buildings and converted them into luxury holiday homes.
What makes this House unique
Our cottages and the park of our estate provide exceptional space, comfort and charm. The site and the region of the Drôme Valley are delightful and ideal for relaxing, site-seeing, active holidays and reunions with family or friends…

THE REGION, THE CLIMATE AND THE OUTDOORS ACTIVITIES:
The Drôme Valley is halfway between Lyon and Avignon in the South-East of France. The climate is almost Mediterranean, with 2,400 hours of sunshine per year and, usually, dry summers. As always in the South of France, one may sometimes experience a few windy days: it is part of the landscape of the South! The river Drôme runs through the valley and its water is very clean with, in fine weather, excellent swimming and beautiful kayak rides. The Domaine de Vincenti is located in the countryside and the pace of life is tranquil and peaceful, allowing for a great holiday, just on-site. But there are also many hikes available close by, in the open countryside. The Pre-Alps, the Vercors Mountains, the Forest of Saoû… hold many other possibilities. For the sports oriented, the region offers exiting opportunities for jogging, hiking, mountain biking, horseback or bicycle riding, climbing, via-ferrata, acrobranche, kayaking ... and you can easily rent bicycles in Crest if you have not brought your own.
The Domaine de Vincenti is 3 kilometers away from the small town of Crest, with its famous medieval tower. One can find anything in Crest: supermarkets, bookstores, bakeries, butchers, wine shops, hair dressers, post office, organic food stores, fruit and vegetable shops, restaurants, bistros, pharmacies, doctors, gas stations, garages ... and a large open market every Saturday morning.
WINES, FOOD AND VISITS:
In Crest, visit the beautiful ancient tower which overlooks the town since 900 years and offer spectacular views of the valley. In the area, there are also quantities of charming old villages to discover, often perched on hilltops, with their ancient streets, their country bistros and unassuming restaurants. Everywhere, the region offers varied and enchanting landscapes: plains and colorful agricultural valleys, vineyards, fields of lavender, fruit trees and truffle oaks; wild hills and mountains with Provencal accents…
The many traditional local markets also give you an opportunity to meet friendly local farmers who sell, with a chanting accent, their vegetables, fruits, goat cheese, olive and lavender oil, garlic, truffles, traditional breads, wines ... In a radius of 15 to 60 kms, visit the famous vineyards of the Côte du Rhône: Clairette de Die, Crozes-Hermitage, Cornas, Saint-Joseph, … the tasteful Provencal wines of the Nyonsais and the area of Grignan, produced since Roman times...
A little further away, at 1h15, discover the mythical old cities of Avignon and Lyon, loaded with history, charming with their lively pace and diversity, both listed on the UNESCO World Heritage. Throughout the year, participate in many cultural events available in the area: festivals, exhibitions, concerts...
For lunch or dinner outside, make a reservation in one of the excellent village restaurants of the valley or of the old city of Valence, 30 minutes away. Gourmets will also find several fine restaurants with 1 Michelin star, the nearest in Crest, just 3 km from the Domaine de Vincenti! For the food passionate, do not miss the very famous Restaurant Pic in Valence, with its 3 Michelin stars!
