Most beautiful hotels with Spa or Thalasso : Auvergne Rhône Alpes

Discover inspirations, exceptional addresses, here and elsewhere


The Auvergne Rhône Alpes region is the second largest region in France, with an area of nearly 70,000 km2. It extends from the Massif Central to the Alps.  It is the largest mountain region in Europe, with more than 80% of its territory occupied by reliefs. This region owes its dynamism above all to the attractiveness of its towns (Lyon, Grenoble) and the numerous winter sports and thermal resorts.

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lyon is the world capital of gastronomy. The Mont Blanc, the Gorges de l'Ardèche, Lake Geneva, the Auvergne volcanoes park are among the natural assets of the Auvergne - Rhône -Alpes region. In winter, the ski resorts (Chamonix, Courchevel, Méribel, Megève, La Clusaz...) invite you to hit the slopes. You will also be able to recharge your batteries in the mountain spas of the chalet hotels. In summer the pure air of the Alps and the Auvergne mountains will call you to disconnect while hiking between lakes and mountains.

To the south, the Rhone valley unfolds, a veritable route of civilisations between the prehistoric site of the Chauvet 2 cave in Ardèche and the Gallo-Roman remains in Vienna. The landscape takes accents of Provence from Valence thanks to the vineyards of the Côtes du Rhône and the multitude of orchards. Two great holiday destinations are finally revealed. The Drôme on the one hand, with its perched villages, its hills, its lavender and the relief of the Vercors . And the Ardèche, with its famous gorges, kingdom of kayakers, its villages of character, its medieval castles and its wild panoramas.
