In the heart of the Rhône Valley
Between Drôme and Ardèche, between Hermitage and Saint-Joseph, the Cité du Chocolat stands next to the Valrhona chocolate factory in the town centre of Tain-l'Hermitage. Located on the N7 trunk road and near the A7 motorway (exit 13), the Cité du Chocolat is a must-see attraction – and a great break on route to/from your holiday destination.
