From the Back Cover:
The Rhône-Alpes, France’s most spectacular region, rises dramatically between Burgundy and Provence, embracing stunning ranges from the Ardèche Gorges west of the Rhône to Europe’s highest mountain, Mont Blanc, in the east. The region, named for the Rhône, the dramatic river that runs through it, also boasts the most romantic lakes in France, gorgeous hill villages, stunning gorges and caves, over half a dozen national and regional parks as well as exhilarating sports and calming spa resorts. It offers an inexhaustible supply of castles, museums and vibrant, cultured cities, including Annecy, Grenoble and the capital, Lyon birthplace of cinema and a World Heritage Site.
Cadogan’s authoritative new guide takes you through the amazingly varied territories of the region from eternally snow-capped peaks to a pre-Provençal paradise along wine, olive, lavender and truffle routes and advises on the best places to relax and enjoy the food and wine for which this part of France is so rightly famous. For winter sports visitors, there is also a fully comprehensive chapter on the ski resorts in the region.
