A hotel for bicycle races in the Ardèche

From the criterium to the Ardèche, a hotel for all competitions

The Ardèche is a magnificent region that offers many landscapes. There are a thousand ways to discover it and cycling is a particularly interesting one. We take the time to visit, to admire the landscapes at our own speed, to stop in the small villages to discover hidden treasures. This is a bit like the philosophy of the Ardèche, this bike race that takes place over several days in June. If the Ardèche is indeed a race offering various levels of difficulty, it is above all a celebration for the whole department, as can be the mythical criterium of the Dauphiné. Its mountainous course makes it an ideal preparation for the Tour de France which takes place a few weeks later and all the great names in world cycling are gathered there. So as not to miss these races and this way of discovering the region, a hotel close to the Critérium du Dauphiné and the Ardéchoise is the solution.

Hôtel de la Villeon, steeped in history and passion

A hotel, yes, but not just any hotel. A beautiful region must be associated with a charming and characterful hotel, a place to come and rest and live at the rhythm of the region's history. This hotel is undoubtedly the Hôtel de la Villeon. This 4-star hotel located in the town of Tournon sur Rhône is a magnificent 18th century building. Restored, furnished, decorated with passion in an elegant and classic style, we are constantly charmed by the atmosphere of the place. As a hotel for the Ardéchoise or as a hotel for the Dauphiné criterium, Hôtel de la Villeon is an attractive choice. The seduction is of course done in the equipment of the room, worthy of a 4-star with its cable TV, marble bathroom, vast high-end bedding, wifi and many other services. But you will soon forget them in front of the charm of a café under the beams of the room under the roofs, a view of the hotel's hanging gardens or the city's fortifications. Our luxury hotel also takes you to its bar, the Gabriel, in homage to Gabriel Fauré who was born within the walls of the establishment or in its cellar, regularly used for wine tastings. If the Ardèche is a cycling country, it is also a beautiful wine region. The Villeon is the ideal place to discover the Drôme and the Ardèche.
