Rhone is a land stretching from the city of Lyon in the north, to Avignon, « the city of popes » in the south, following the curves of majestuous river Rhone on its way to the mediterranean sea. The most striking thing when exploring Rhone is that you will litteraly see south of France suddenly appear in front of your eyes as your chauffeur will drive you through the valley. As soon as you reach the town of Valence, the sun will be warmer, the cicadas louder and Mistral wind stronger ! Steep vineyards on both side of the river, continental climate and lyonnaise’s inspired cuisine in the North echo the famous pebbles terroir, the mediterranean weather and provence inspired cuisine of the south. Rhone calls for scenic drives, panoramic walks, comparative tastings, apéritif in the shade and taking the time ... We will add elegant touches of quiet luxury along the way, such as unique gourmet meals, hidden boutique hotels or historic guesthouses.
