  • Tailor-made authentic hotel holidays to Rhone Valley

    France Beaujolais and Rhone Valley
    Luxury holidays in Beaujolais and the Rhone Valley
    The regions of Beaujolais and Rhone extend to the north and south of the city of Lyon. Beaujolais is obviously famous for its wine but the rolling hills are a patchwork of vineyards and pretty villages and well worth exploring. Further south the landscape becomes more Mediterranean but there are areas of natural beauty with river valleys, mountains, forests and plains as well as more cultivated areas of vines, fruit and flowers. The villages are delightful with stone buildings and red roofs, there are numerous sporting activities and the gastronomy is excellent. The unique Chateau de Bagnols in the Beaujolais region enjoys a pretty location and combines details of the past with the facilities of a four star hotel.

    Use Beaujolais and Rhone as a stop en route to places further south but also for longer stays of exploring and relaxing. The region provides the perfect stopover for a self-drive touring holiday en route to Provence or to the French Alps and Lakes, or you can explore the Rhone Valley further as well as visiting Burgundy and Provence.
