Donned the "crossroads of Europe," this southeastern region of France is famous for its wondrous winterscapes and majestic vernal beauty. With borders touching Switzerland and Italy and the dramatic Alps rising out of the deep canyons of the Rhone and Saone valleys, the Rhone-Alpes province is truly spectacular. The eclectic villages that occupy the crevices of the rugged mountain terrain offer a taste of culture unlike any other, but this is no isolated place; Rhone-Alpes is home to France's second-largest city and is the sixth-largest economic region in all of Europe.
Some of the must-see sights, activities, and attractions in the Rhone-Alpes region include:
If you visit in December, be sure to experience the Fete des Lumieres or "Festival of Lights." While fireworks dance across the crisp winter sky and the frost tickles your toes, warm up with a cup of hot regional wine, sure to warm you to the core.
A vacation rental is the ideal accommodation for your Alps holiday. Whether it's a stylish apartment in cosmopolitan Lyon or a quiet cabin in the mountains, there are plenty of options available no matter your tastes or budget.
If you want to explore further, cross the eastern border into Switzerland or Italy to take in more of the Alps. Both nations are easily accessible by train or air from Lyon.
