Vive la France! Beauty triumphs in the southern region

Tucked away in southeastern France, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes features a dramatic landscape, where the rugged peaks of the Alps give way to lush green valleys and glistening blue lakes. The pastoral countryside is ripe for exploring, offering itself as a playground for thrill seekers of all ages. But it's not all about the great outdoors as the landscape also provides a mixture of cozy villages and bustling big cities, meaning you're never far from world-renowned restaurants, museums, and wineries. No matter where you book your Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes vacation rental, you're sure to leave the region with a heart full of memories.

Things to do

Start wine-ing! Exploring the cultural landscape

The architecture buffs in your group will find numerous fine buildings in the region to tour, including the Bastille, a 19th-century fortress tucked high in the Chartreuse mountains above Grenoble, and the 13th-century Cathedrale Notre-Dame du Puy, perched on a rocky hill over the town of Le-Puy-en-Velay. For an afternoon of sophistication, make your way to the vineyard-covered Rhone valley, where you can sample various fine wines. Lyon offers an embarrassment of cultural attractions, including the renowned Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon, housed inside a 17th-century convent, and the Miniature Museum and Theater, where exhibits highlight famed movie memorabilia.

Activities

It's all downhill—mountain fun in the sun and snow

If you're looking for a relaxing retreat, reward yourself with a pampering session in the spa towns of Aix-les-Bains and Evian-les-Bains. Set along the shores of Lake Annecy, the town of Annecy offers medieval canals and bridges for strolling, while nearby Saint-Jorioz features beaches and waterfront trails. For outdoor winter adventures, book an Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes vacation rental near the Alpine resorts and try your hand at skiing, ice-skating, snowboarding, and sledding. Popular resort attractions in the summer include hiking, mountain biking, and paragliding. For those who prefer the water, Lake Geneva offers opportunities for boat rides, swimming, and fishing.

Weather

Tis the season! From snowy days to sunny skies

If you book an Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes vacation rental in the winter, get ready to bundle up, particularly in the Alps, which experiences long winters with plenty of snow from December through May, and daytime temperatures hovering around freezing. The region starts to thaw out in the spring when temperatures warm up to the 50s, with fall seeing similar conditions. Sunny summer days are common, especially in the south, where it can also get humid and dry, although temperatures rarely hit the 70-degree mark. No matter the season, make sure you bring an umbrella as the region gets pretty soaked year round.

Natural features

Nature calls: from craggy caves to lovely lavender

Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes offers a diverse landscape, starting with the Alps, a majestic range dotted with jagged peaks, alpine lakes, thick forests, and large waterfalls. Trek further into this rugged landscape and you'll also find glaciers and gorges. Soak up the sights and smells of the central region's vast valleys covered with vineyards, lavender fields, sunflowers, and olive groves. Massive lakes, including Lake Annecy and Lake Geneva, add to the region's wet and wild scenery. If you've ever wanted to travel back in time, visit the Chauvet caves, and gaze at the prehistoric drawings that cover the cavern walls.
