Saint-Péray is a town in the Ardèche department with a population of 7,500, 5 km from Valence, and is spread over a gradient of almost 550 metres between the plains of the Rhône Valley and the foothills of the Massif Central.   Overlooked by the Château de Crussol castle, the medieval and natural site of Saint-Péray has conserved its village nature, with its shops, cafés, restaurants and Wednesday morning market. It boasts a very dynamic network of associations that organise a wealth of sporting and cultural activities. Its living environment and heritage are highly valued. French singer Zaz fell in love with this beautiful village and set up the Crussol Festival which enjoys a prominent profile thanks to famous headlining acts.   Saint-Péray is a winemaking town and has given its name to a renowned appellation area. Its still or sparkling white wines made from Marsanne and Roussane grapes win over epicureans from all over the world. Each year, on the first weekend in September, its wine festival and twinning celebrations attract thousands of visitors.
