Rhône-Alpes

Chamonix 2641890 960 720Rhône-Alpes, a région of complete diversity.  From pastures, vineyards and forest to the west of the region to the mountains of the Savoie and Haute-Savoie. Spectacular scenery fn winter from the snow capped tip of Mont Blanc and the surrounding icy lakes and snow capped peaks which turn in summer to green slows covered with mountain flowers and lakes for swimming. The river Rhône passes from Switzerland through this region and down to the Mediterranean.  

An area of natural beauty with Lyon as its regional capital. Exploring Lyon as a city should be on everyone's agenda. Wandering through the old town Vieux Lyon, visiting the Notre Dame de Fourvière, which is likened to the Sacre Coeur in Paris, or sit on the edge of the magnificent   main square Place Bellecour with a coffee and watch the world go by.  

One of the most beautiful towns of the region is Annecy and its lake where there are a good choice of water activities.  With its small alleys and streets, the tributaries of the Cana du Thiou and its apparent abundance of trailing geraniums all come together to make a charming town. 

Holidays are not just about the summer. Rent a holiday home near the village of Chamonix close to Mont Blanc or Moûtiers near Les Trois Vallées and  enjoy some excellent ski-ing in winter 

Our holiday cottages and villas in the Rhône Alpes sleep between 3 and 15 persons.  The larger properties, some with private pool, offer an idyllic location for large groups of extended families or friends taking their holidays together.  Great memory making times
