Lyon, the jewel on the banks of the Rhône, is full of treasures to discover. The Presqu’île, the famous district between the Rhône and Saône rivers, offers a wealth of elegant boutiques and friendly restaurants, with a lively atmosphere all year round. The Basilique Notre-Dame de Fourvière, the city’s iconic landmark, is a must-see for lovers of architecture and spirituality. Old Lyon is also a UNESCO World Heritage site, with its mysterious traboules and Renaissance buildings. Finally, the banks of the Rhône and Saône rivers, ideal for strolling and picnicking, offer moments of tranquillity right in the heart of the city. Lyon is a destination that combines charm, culture and authenticity.




The medieval city of Pérouges is listed as one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France, making it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the département. The architecture is typical of the Middle Ages, with a double walled enclosure and residences dating from the 15th and 16th centuries.

Have lunch at the Hostellerie de Perouges or head for Beaujolais along the Dombes road, stopping off at Chatillon-sur-Chalaronne.




Annecy, its lake, its old town, its narrow streets and arcades, its traditional market and restaurants… Visit the town, guided by your professional chauffeur.

Don’t forget to visit the Château des Ducs de Savoie, the Château de Menthon and the Medieval Prison. Take a cruise on the Libellule paddle-steamer or climb up to the Col de la Forclaz for a panoramic view of the lake and its paragliders.



2. The region’s vineyards



The wineries along the Côtes du Rhône are a must for wine lovers. An aperitif tasting in Cornas, at the Maison Chapoutier and Jaboulet estates, or at Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Saint-Joseph. We suggest lunch at the Le Quai restaurant, ideally situated on the banks of the Rhône. You can also visit the Hermitage vineyards around the Chapelle and enjoy a panoramic view of the Rhône Valley, all from the comfort of a Chabé vehicle.




Situated on the borders of the Paris Basin, the plains of the Saône and the Massif Central, Bourgogne offers a wealth of Grands Crus, from family estates to prestigious classified growths.
