Join us on a holiday to France

One of Europe’s most popular holiday paradises, La Belle France is a captivating place to explore, where no two regions are the same. A country of historic cities, stunning hilltop villages, rolling vineyards, sprawling lavender fields, towering Alps and sun-soaked shores, France awaits discovery.

From the historic streets of Paris to the sun-drenched vineyards of Bordeaux, from the orchards of Normandy and Brittany to the windswept Atlantic coast, and from the lakes and mountains of the Haute Savoie to the Mediterranean shores, every corner of France has its own special charm. Soak up the sophisticated, metropolitan buzz of Paris, relax into the slower-paced charms of Provence, or unwind completely and indulge in the leisurely joys of a cruise along the Rhône.

France’s cultural repertoire is vast. Paris alone is home to some of the world’s finest museums and galleries, to glorious historic palaces and churches, and to some of Europe’s most astounding modern architectural wonders. This is the nation that gave the world Proust, Descartes and Sartre; Monet, Manet, Matisse and Gauguin; Bizet Debussy and Edith Piaf. But beyond all these stellar sights, great minds and inspired artists, the simple elegance of everyday French culture, "la vie Française", turns daily rituals into unforgettable moments, be it coffee and a croissant in a Parisian cafe, a stroll through elegant parks and gardens, or relaxing with a glass of locally produced wine after a wonderful, simple meal.

Whether you end up exploring the pretty streets and elegant boulevards of Paris, riding a cable car to discover glacial panoramas above Chamonix, or seeing the lily ponds and gardens at Monet's country home in Giverny, your holiday in France will leave you with unforgettable memories an experiences to treasure.

Between the countryside and the coast, and from the mountains to the rivers, canals and cities, there’s something for everyone on a holiday to France.
