France’s geography stretches from rugged coastline to seemingly infinite beaches, from bustling cities to quaint rural villages. From sun-drenched isles to luxury mountain ski resorts.
This is the country that inspired Monet’s reinvention of colour, Toulouse Lautrec’s portrayal of the dark underbelly of Paris society. Tantalising our taste buds with foie gras and frogs’ legs. Capturing the imagination of the world’s jet-set with the resorts of St Tropez and Port Grimaud. Millions discover its wonders each year with a holiday in France.
Places to see France
France is one of the most popular sightseeing destinations in the world. Millions of visitors every year, and just about as many things to see and do. This beautiful and historic country is a must. Its buildings can be treasures – such as the magnificent Notre-Dame, stately Arc de Triomphe and the palace of Versailles. Containers of treasures, such as the unrivaled collections of the Louvre and the Museé d’Orsay with its globally respected portfolio of Impressionist art. As one might expect, the tourist infrastructure is excellent with diverse offerings for every type of traveler. An organised tour is a good option if you have only a week. But for those with longer to indulge, car rental or train travel is the best way to get around.
The country reveals its many charms, visit the busy weekly markets in small towns, the rolling vineyards of the wine country. The sage-scented Mistral winds of Provence, and the luxuriant high life of the Cote d’Azure all form their own enduring impressions in the visitor’s mind.
This is a year-round destination, although book ahead if planning a trip around Christmas or New Year. At this time of year bookings are extremely high. Also Summer (June to August) is the peak season in France.
