Highly varied landscapes and an impressive tourism offer make Rhône-Alpes a region of good living, which its inhabitants and an ever-growing number of visitors appropriate with great ease. The most extensive ski slopes are here and, if all of the regions ski-lifts were joined end to end, they would cover the distance from Lyon to Cairo. The fact that the Winter Olympics have been held three times in the region has solidly underlined this sporting identity. Rhône-Alpes has a wealth of museums, including Lyon's Saint-Pierre Museum, the leading French museum after the Louvre, the National centre of Contemporary Art of Grenoble, or Saint-Etienne's Museum of Modern Art. http://en.rhonealpes.fr/

Bordered along the whole of its west coast by the Atlantic Ocean, Aquitaine is bathed in a mild oceanic climate with the influence of the Gulf Stream. The 2,200 sunshine hours per year make the Bordeaux region similar to the Mediterranean. Along with rainfall that is well distributed over the year, this sunshine is one of the elements which favour vine-growing in Aquitaine. The towns and villages of Aquitaine impress visitors with their marvellously well-preserved heritage, notably their architecture, influenced in past times by the Romans and then by the English. Alongside sites officially accredited as the "Loveliest Villages in France", a thousand and one other places are also a delight for the eyes and the mind. http://www.tourisme-aquitaine.fr/en/
