From the Back Cover:

The Rhone-Alpes, France's most spectacular region, rises dramatically between Burgundy and Provence, embracing stunning ranges from the Ardeche Gorges west of the Rhone to Europe's highest mountain, Mont Blanc, in the east. The region, named for the Rhone, the dramatic river that runs through it, also boasts the most romantic lakes in France, gorgeous hill villages, stunning gorges and caves, over half a dozen national and regional parks as well as exhilarating sports and calming spa resorts. It offers an inexhaustible supply of castles, museums and vibrant, cultured cities, including Annecy, Grenoble and the capital, Lyon – birthplace of cinema and a World Heritage Site.
Cadogan's authoritative new guide takes you through the amazingly varied territories of the region from eternally snowcapped peaks to a pre-Provencal paradise – along wine, olive, lavender and truffle routes – and advises on the best places to relax and enjoy the food and wine for which this part of France is so rightly famous. For winter sports visitors, there is also a fully comprehensive chapter on the ski resorts in the region.
Inside you will find:
Over 600 hand-picked places to stay and eat, covering a wide range of styles and budgets.
A ski chapter that assesses the region's resorts along with full listings for ski schools.
Comprehensive sports listings - from canoeing to paragliding.
Descriptions of great local wines such as Beaujolais and Cotes du Rhone.
