It's all about Old versus New
The recently formed Auvergne Rhone Alpes region consists of both former regions merged into one new super wide and super wild region.
The Rhône-Alpes region
offers an overwhelming choice for sports enthusiasts. Family skiing, interconnecting slopes, cross-country skiing and new snowsports, all served up with magnificent scenery. In the summer, the mountains are just as alluring.
Right at the very heart of France is the Auvergne
region. It’s an exceptionally rugged part of the nation’s countryside where the Central Massif’s unmistakable geological features make a unique statement and its intriguing history stretches way back to the Celts, the Romans and much further.
