BICYCLE TOURISM IN THE RHONE VALLEY

 

As it follows the river Rhône from Lake Geneva to the banks of Camargue, the historical ViaRhôna cycle path invites you to set off on your bicycle, experience landscapes close up and discover an impressive region between Switzerland and the Mediterranean Sea. Tourists may therefore choose to cycle through the iconic Côtes du Rhône vineyard regions, as well as those of Southern Provence. This is a route rich in history, where the echo of more than 2,000 years of civilisation can still be heard along the way. Cyclists pass through secure paths at some points and shared paths at others. 

Located in Tournon-sur-Rhône, a flagship town rooted at the very heart of the ViaRhôna, Hôtel de la Villeon is the ideal place for cycling enthusiasts in search of a charming stop along the banks of the Rhône. Located less than 10 minutes’ walk from the cycle path, Hôtel de la Villeon is a listed eighteenth-century hotel offering pure, authentic elegance. It features 16 rooms, including 4 suites, and hanging gardens with spectacular views over the Hermitage vineyards and the heritage of Tournon. During their stay at Hôtel de la Villeon, bicycle tourism enthusiasts will be assisted in their bicycle rental and the elaboration of their cycling itineraries between the vineyards and the banks of the Rhône.
