Chute de la Druise

Chute de la Druise is without a doubt one of the most beautiful waterfall in France. Chute de la Druise is located near Plan de Baix (Valence) in the region Drôme, France.

From Valence(N7) go south and take the exit to Die (D93) and turn left after Crest towards Plan de Baix. (D70). In Plan de Baix go right to Ombleze/Restaurant Moulin de la Pipe. At the restaurant there is a sign for Chute de la Druise going right, a beautiful route brings you to a parking in Ansage (gps 44.828699, 5.195283).

From the parking it is a 20-25 minute walk (1.8 km) to the base of Chute de la Druise . In summertime the river brings some coolness, it can be very warm. You can visit Chute de la Druise all year around but the flow is more powerful early in the season or after rainfall.

The river Gervanne falls down over a cliff in a single drop and ends 72 meter lower. Because you walk towards the end of a gorge, Chute de la Druise is very photogenic with beautiful blue and green colors. That is why I rated this waterfall with a 3.5 star, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in France.
