TAIN L'HERMITAGE

 

 

EXPLORE ITS BEAUTIFUL ENTOURAGE

 

Ideally located in the heart of the Rhône Valley, an hour away from the ski resorts and 2 hours away from the Mediterranean, sheltered by the famous l’ Hermitage hillside vineyards and bordering on the God River, Tain l’Hermitage enjoys a privileged location, involved in a wide range of fields like winegrowing, gastronomy and tourism. The town offers multiple attractions, whether it is its antique town centre dating from the Middle Ages and featuring a host of relics (like the Taurobole Altar, the Hotel des Courbis, the Adrets Tower, the Salt Cellar,

Rue de la Voûte and many more), its walks along the Rhône, crossing the ViaRhôna cycle path that goes from Lake Geneva to the sea, its footpaths across the l’Hermitage hillside vineyards overlooked by Saint Christopher Chapel and its stunning view overlooking the meandering King River the Rhône, its Chocolate Museum and its cooperative cellar.
Bordering the vineyards, a succession of orchards will, according to the season, provide wanderers with a wide palette of colours as cherry tree, 

apricot tree and peach tree branches are alternately splashed with blossoms or loaded with sun-drenched fruit. From the nautical stop, one may board one of the many cruise ships sailing the Rhône and admire the riverside landscape with new eyes. People also come to Tain L’Hermitage to discover and sample the major vintages that have given the town its reputation as a Town of Taste thanks to its world-renowned wines and chocolates.
