From the mythical Mont Blanc to the majestic gorges of Ardeche, Rhône-Alpes’s nature puts on a show while you recharge body and soul at Evian or on the shores of alpine lakes.
This is the second-most-starred region in the French Michelin Guide. Mont-Blanc overlooks the Alps, which are home to the largest ski area in the world and luxurious resorts such as Courchevel, Megève or Val d'Isère. Here you can enjoy downhill or cross-country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoe walks, sled rides, ice diving, curling, etc. Go canoeing in the Drôme, swimming in the great Alpine Lakes, golfing on the prestigious greens such as the Evian Masters Golf Club.
Think also of Lyon’s rich heritage, covering many UNESCO-classified buildings, reflecting every period in its history and making the region endlessly appealing. The city is home of the legendary Paul Bocuse and the Lyonnais bouchons (traditional and authentic restaurants associated with Lyon) offering cochonnailles, quenelles and other specialities. The region has a significant range of wines: Brouilly or other Beaujolais crus, wines from Savoy, Côtes du Rhône, and more.
The Rhône-Alpes has a considerable variety of offerings for your family outings.
The region really shows its residents and visitors how to enjoy themselves!
