A peaceful village perched high on a hilltop in the Drôme Provençale. Puygiron is a superb vantage point from where you can admire the views over the Cévennes and the Monts du Vivarais right across to the Prealps, as you dominate the plain below. In the centre of the village is the Place du Château, with its White Mulberry Tree, planted there by Olivier de Serre, a friend of Henri IV, approximately three centuries ago.
