Luxury Holidays in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes

Known as one of the finest locations for skiing in the entire world, the French Alps offer a whole host of different options that provide the perfect place to enjoy a group skiing holiday in Western Europe. With the delightful villages that sit in the foothills right through to the resorts and chalets that sit high on the sky-line, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes remain one of the most awe-inspiring places around the world.

Whatever your ability there will be the perfect opportunity for skiing in the area. With plenty of beginner slopes and ski schools that can offer instruction for those completely new to the sport, you won’t be without a location that doesn’t match your needs and skills.

While skiing maybe the most popular activity in this area, the Rhône Alpes offer plenty of other brilliant activities that you can get involved in even out of the ski season. Many people come to the area looking to take up the chance to enjoy the popular walking and mountain-biking routes that traverse through the valleys. There are also plenty of places where you can enjoy water sports such as rafting and kayaking in the fantastic rivers and lakes that are dotted throughout the range of mountains.

Despite the seemingly hard to reach location, The Alps do have a number of good transport links that make it easily reachable for those coming to the region. High-Speed rail links throughout France link the nearby city of Lyon to the rest of the country and the international airport at Grenoble means you can reach here easily from plenty of other areas in Europe.

Some of the most astonishing scenery in the whole of the world can be viewed in the National Parks throughout the area. The somewhat-unbelievable way in which the mountains merge with forests and lakes will provide an absolutely awe-inspiring backdrop for what is bound to prove the most memorable of French holidays.
