The name of this region itself betrays its character. On the one side the dominating Alps with Europe’s highest peak, the Mont Blanc, on the other side the deep Rhône-Valley with its wild landscape and untamed streams. In the north there are the swamps of the Dombes and the fertile plain of Bresse. Internationally known ski resorts like Chamonix, Mégève and Chourchevel have made the east of France an attraction for people from all over the world. On the shore of Lake Geneve elegant resorts are lined up, each with its small port. In the south, the orchards and sunflower fields merge into bright lavender rows, with scattered vineyards and olive groves. The fascinating play of flowers and hills is the secret of this region!
