The town is accessible via road 144 from Donzere (south) or Montelimar (north). One of the few bridges over Rhone River connects the downtown to the village Viviers en Ardeche. The nearest highway is A7 (aka Autoroute du Soleil) that links Lyon and Marseille (on the French Riviera). The PLM Line (railway Paris-Lyon to Marseille-Saint-Charles) crosses Chateauneuf-du-Rhone. However, the closest train station is Gare de Donzere (between Montelimar and Pierrelatte) and serves LGV Mediterranee (250-km long high-speed rail line for TGV trains).

The local economy is based on Henri Poincare (1957-opened hydroelectric power station), agriculture and tourism (2 hotels, 5 restaurants, a nature park with a mini-train).
