Nestled in the southeastern part of France, Rhone-Alpes is a vibrant region offering an array of experiences - from stunning Alpine peaks to exquisite vineyards, historical towns, and delightful gastronomy. But one of the lesser-known gems of this region is its waterways, particularly the Rhone River and the Canal du Rhone, that offer a wonderful opportunity for a unique holiday on houseboats.
Renting a houseboat in Rhone-Alpes presents an entirely unique way of exploring the French landscape. Imagine sailing along the tranquil waters at your leisure, watching the landscape slowly change from lush vineyards to majestic mountain peaks, stopping at quaint towns and villages whenever the mood strikes, and spending quiet evenings on the deck under a starlit sky. Houseboats come fully equipped with all the comforts of home, allowing you to immerse yourself in the charm of French country living while enjoying modern conveniences.
While cruising along the Rhone River and the Canal du Rhone on your houseboat, you can visit cities like Lyon, known for its historical and architectural landmarks, and Avignon, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Smaller towns such as Vienne, with its ancient Roman ruins, and the wine-making village of Tain-l'Hermitage are also worth exploring.
Part of the joy of a houseboat holiday in Rhone-Alpes is the opportunity to sample local delicacies. Many houseboats come equipped with full kitchens, allowing you to try your hand at cooking regional dishes using fresh produce picked up from local markets. Alternatively, docking at riverside restaurants and cafes to enjoy local cuisine, especially the renowned wines and cheeses of the region, is an experience in itself.
