HOW TO GET THERE
Located in the Rhône-Alpes Region, Tournon-sur-Rhône is the Sub-Prefecture for the department (county) of Ardèche (07).
The town borders highway RN86 and leads towards the Rhône Valley via highway RN7, the legendary “Holiday Trail”, by crossing the Rhône River. Tournon faces its ‘twin town’ Tain l’Hermitage, located for its part on the western border of the department of Drôme (26). Highway RN7 goes through the centre of Tain – the town has direct rail service from its SNCF station as well as an exit from the A7 motorway, which are both of direct benefit to Tournon.
Both towns are located close to major cities like Lyon (90 km – about 40min), Valence (20 km – 20min) and its TGV station (20min), Romans-sur-Isère (20 km – 20min) and the A49 motorway towards Grenoble (115 km – 1h20) and the ski resorts.
