Vive la France! Rich in gastronomy, culture and je ne sais quoi, you can expect uninimitable style and hospitality plus an abundance of truly unique places to stay in just about any French location you care to visit.
One of the most beautiful and distinctive regions, Alsace in the north east is mixed with German influence, and packed with everything that makes a holiday special. Think great wine, a rich history, and spectacular countryside. Aquitaine is home to the French Pyrenees and the Dordogne, not to mention the sandy coastline of La Gironde. The French Riviera, meanwhile, is home to Cannes, and its world-famous film festival.
Looking for something off the tourist track? Auvergne, in Central France, is the least densely populated area, though Vichy and Clermont-Ferrand are hotspots (the latter being the home to Michelin’s headquarters).
Enjoy a traditional galette – also known as a crêpe – in Brittany, a region known for its exquisite sculptures and Celtic cultural influences, while Beaune, the wine capital of Burgundy, is the place for enjoying the fruits of the grape! Languedoc-Roussillon is another well-known wine region, while the Loire Valley is surrounded by breathtaking countryside, majestic châteaux and the longest river in France, making this area a total must-visit.
Visit Champagne-Ardenne to learn more about the "king of wines", while if you prefer to walk in grand historical shoes, the mountainous island of Corsica is most closely associated with Napoleon.
Franche-Comté borders Switzerland, meaning plenty of opportunities to ski! This is also the place to visit if you’re a lover of cheese, with 40 million tonnes produced here every year.
Paris, the capital city and ‘City of Lights’, is home to the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Disneyland, the Metro and the famous Moulin Rouge, for a unique city break loved by many the world over. The Ile de France region is not all urban however, with plenty of fresh green space and heritage to explore. Plenty of agricultural beauty can also be found in Limousin, complete with invigorating pastures and woodland.
Lorraine borders Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany for an interesting cross-cultural mix, while Lower Normandy is rich in World War II history. Visit the Notre Dame in Upper Normandy, while France’s largest region is the Midi-Pyrénées, featuring the ever-popular and traditional city of Toulouse.
Enjoy shopping and antiquing in Lille, visit museums in Marseille, relax in leafy Provence, walk in royal shoes through Versailles, ski in Chamonix, or go celebrity-spotting in Monaco and Monte Carlo. Everything you could possibly need from a holiday is here – so why not come and discover la belle France for yourself?
