L'Ancien Relais is an old stone farmhouse dating from the 16th Century, situated in Escoulin, a small picturesque hamlet on the edge of the Vercors National Park in the wonderful French region of the Drome. Along with Hannibal and his elephants, Greeks, Romans and Celts have all passed through the valley in their time.

The house is owned by Sue Fallon, who runs dedicated workshops in the summer for photographers and artists. [SG]
