AUVERGNE & FRENCH ALPS

Montains, lakes and volcanoes

Famous for its regional park of volcanoes, Auvergne appeals to lovers of hiking or horse riding who find here natural spaces conducive to the practice of their sport. Auvergne also invites to well-being thanks to its numerous thermal spas among which Vichy or La Bourboule attract spa visitors who come for moments of relaxation. Without forgetting the authentic gastronomy present everywhere with meats, cheeses and hams whose scents permanently whet the appetite.

Rhône-Alpes contrasts the gentle relief of Auvergne with Alpine summits paradise for skiers and mountaineering enthusiasts, but also immense lakes like that of Annecy or Le Bourget which invite swimming and water sports.

Finally Lyon at the confluence of the Rhône and the Saône with its millennial history, its endearing districts and its intense cultural life remains an essential stage for a urban weekend or the discovery of the famous festival of lights which takes place every year at the beginning of December.
