Rhône-Alpes

When you rent a holiday home in the Rhône Alpes, you find yourself in one of the most fragrant and colourful parts of France. Sprawling vineyards and lavender fields are interspersed with picturesque villages and towns. The natural beauty here is tremendous. To the east are the white peaks of the Alps, while inland the rolling landscape is full of lakes and rivers. In summer, these are perfect hiking areas, and in winter you can access a myriad of winter sports from your holiday home in the Rhône Alpes.

Enjoy nature from your holiday home in the Rhône Alpes

The Loire, Rhône and Ain departments in the north-east of the Rhône Alpes are known for their natural beauty. These areas are named after the rivers flowing through them, with the longest river in France being the Loire. The landscape here is hilly with wooded slopes and green valleys. The Rhône is famous for its wines! Here, you will come across the Rhône Valley wine regions (home to Côtes du Rhône and Costières de Nîmesen Ventoux wine), and the famous Beaujolais (for Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages wines). For the wine lover, this region is a must. Drive the wine route here and discover the quaint yellow ochre villages, castles and churches. The area is also known for its architecture, various museums and of course the city of Lyon. This city, where gastronomy is very important, is really worth a visit! Visit the old part of town, with its cathedral, basilica and town hall, or one of the other historic buildings. The Dombes ponds, in Ain, are a true fishing paradise. Pilat, a wooded regional natural park, is also worth a visit. Discover this beautiful region from your holiday home in the Rhône Alpes!

Ardèche and Drôme, two popular regions in the south

Book a holiday home in the Rhône Alpes for a wonderful French holiday. The perfect combination of nature and culture has made Ardèche and Drôme in the south of the Rhône Alpes extremely popular with tourists. The rivers bearing the same name and their nearby lakes provide plenty of water fun and sports. Impressive gorges have formed here, such as the famous Gorges l'Ardèche. A good starting point for a canoe or hiking trip through this gorge is the natural rock bridge in Vallon Pont d'Arc. The south of the Rhône Alpes has even more to offer. Enjoy the view across the lavender fields, visit the stalactite caves or stroll through one of the many Provençal markets. Interesting cities for a day out are Montélimar, also called the "capital of nougat". And Valence with its famous cathedral and beautiful marina. A great family excursion is a visit to the crocodile farm or one of the other zoos and amusement parks. Not surprising that this region is so popular: there is something for everyone to do from a holiday home in the Rhône Alpes!
