"Yet Another Beautiful Area Of France!" Top 5 Page for this destination Rhône-Alpes by freya_heaven

Rhône-Alpes Travel Guide: 2,585 reviews and 6,808 photos

The Rhone and Alps area is situated in the south east of France. The alps are the highest mountains in western Europe with the peak being Mont Blanc on the Italian boarder.
This is a world class ski area & is also very popular with hikers, mountain bikers & rock climbers in the summer months too.


The Rhone Valley runs along side the west of the Alps and provides beautiful alpine foothills, the largest city in the area is the university city of Lyon, the second largest urban area in France. You can not visit the Rhone region without stepping in to the wonderful Ardech Gorge & visit at the right time of year for experience the sight & smell of the lavender fields & vineyards.

    Great pages! I love skiing in the Aples but I've never been in the French Alpes. The crocodile looks like a perfect pet for Freya ;-) Wonderful pics and infos! Hugs, Michael

    Nicola, Enjoyed these lovely pages on Rhone-Alpes, especially the villages of Suze La Rousse and La Fornet. The scenery is magnificent. Information on Blood Wagon was fascinating. Lavender fields would, indeed, be spectacular.

    Great tips Nicola! This is the part of France that I most want to visit - one of these days. I had a laugh at Freya taming that wild Croc, not much of a job after subduing the Pony! Yeow, the Ardeche Gorge view gave me 'vertigo'!!

    Such beautiful scenery and great skiing. I would love to see the lavender fields in full bloom. That croc Freya is riding looks awfully real :-)

    Nicola, what a lovely page! Looks like the weather was a little cold & snowy! Can't believe of all places, there is a crocodile farm. Glad they stopped using them for purses!
