The Rhône-Alpes region of France is famous for its natural beauty. Its landscape alters greatly. Valleys, vineyards and olive groves, make way for the awesome scenery of the foothills of the Alpine mountain range.
The province boasts numerous national parks, the Gorges of the Ardèche River - and its Vallon Pont d'Arc - contain breathtaking scenery rarely found elsewhere in Western Europe. The province is also the home of Mont Blanc. So if kayaking, mountaineering, skiing or paragliding are your passions, then a stay at an apparthotel Rhône-Alpes can provide for these activities, and in the most dramatic surroundings.
However, this is not all that the region has to offer. Its capital, Lyon, is a large, cosmopolitan city. Lyon has made its name as the capital of gastronomy in France, a bold claim, but a claim which can be upheld, with some of the finest French chefs - such as Paul Bocuse - working in the region. Lyon also has the cultural attractions that one would expect of a cosmopolitan city; from theatres, to open-air markets, and top-level sporting events. And with impressive Roman, Medieval and Renaissance architecture, Lyon has been recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
An apparthotel Rhône-Alpes would provide you with access to all the delights of the region; the wine, the food, the culture, the scenery and the architecture, But given the region is often referred to as the hub of France - both Paris and Côte d'Azur can be reached by TGV in under 2 hours - a holiday apart-hotel in the Rhône-Alpes would be the ideal base to explore France.
