Asheville is the gateway to the Appalachian Mountains. The city earned a reputation as a health resort in the 1890s and by the 1920s, Asheville became the mountain retreat for the rich and famous of the time, including Thomas Edison, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Henry Ford to name but a few.
Nowadays this thriving mountain city features a fascinating downtown with a variety of architectural styles, a burgeoning arts-scene with lots of galleries, and of course the ever-present, awe-inspiring scenery of the Appalachians.
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay
and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the

We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in.
Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside
café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we
wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed
that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!
