Take a city break in France
The Rhône-Alpes is one of the largest and most prosperous regions in France with three main cities, namely Lyon, Grenoble and St Etienne. Lyon is the capital of this region and is also a gastronomic hub with a plethora of medieval buildings. The Gothic Monastere Royal de Brou is to the northeast of Lyon and contains huge royal tombs and marble statues for those with a keen sense for history. Rent a French holiday home and take a ride over Grenoble on its infamous cable car before seeing some contemporary art at Le Magasin, or visit Saint Etienne to watch a football match and admire the Cathedral’s architecture.
What to eat in the Rhône-Alpes
With the culinary paradise that is Lyon as its capital, the Rhône-Alpes region is one of the most frequented by gastronome guests on self-catering holidays. Mountainous surroundings make way for regional specialties including sublime and well-renowned cheese dishes such as raclette and cheese fondue, whilst fertilised forests are the perfect place to find Ardèche chestnuts, Grenoble walnuts and Drôme truffles.
