Getting There & Away
Lyon is the main transport hub for the region, two hours by TGV from Paris and five hours from London. From Lyon, trains can take you pretty much anywhere in France. Valence and Montélimar are also well served by TGV, and a good rail service links most of the main attractions within the region. A car gives added freedom for the more rural areas, particularly the Beaujolais, La Dombes and the Gorges de l'Ardèche.
Lyon also has good air services, particularly from the UK.
