If you come in summer, it can be very hot. Drome is situated relatively far from the maritime influence, so in summer in the southern Rhone Valley you'd have to expect average temperatures between 30/35°C, with not unusual days close to 40°C. If you can rent a house with a pool it would be usefull.

Our friend lives in Drome and tells us how hot it gets in summer. So we'd probably go in spring, although we'd miss the lavendar blooming.

Southern Rhone-Alpes is nice (contrast between the southern and northern Alps, medieval villages and castles...). And there are less tourists than the surrounding regions.
