France Tours

Touring holidays of France are incredibly popular, which is no surprise given the world-class architecture, delightful countryside, fantastic food and wine just waiting to be discovered. Some of the best regions of France to explore on a tour are the fairytale castles of the Loire, the colourful scenery of Provence and the glamorous towns of the French Riviera, Nice, Cannes, St Tropez and Monte Carlo.

France

Discover France

A touring holiday in France is the perfect way to explore the country’s diverse regions, from elegant cities to terraced vineyards and glamorous seaside resorts. Travel through tranquil landscapes full of fascinating historic sites including stone-age cave paintings, ancient troglodytic villages, extraordinary walled cities and magnificent chateaux. France’s history is intriguingly entwined with our own, from William the Conqueror to Richard the Lionheart and the D-Day landings.

Some of the greatest names in literature, art and music have been French, from Monet to Chopin, Voltaire and Molière. Art lovers will be in their element at the many world-renowned galleries and museums throughout the country, and there are countless harbour towns, pretty villages and beautiful gardens that featured in the paintings of the Impressionists who were inspired by the unique light and beauty of the country.

France offers a wide array of gastronomic delights and there is always something tasty to try, whether it is a warm croissant fresh from the boulangerie, tasting Champagne in an ancient wine cellar or enjoying the plat du jour in a traditional village bistro. Colourful local markets are perfect for the gourmet shopper, with culinary delights including foie gras, regional cheeses and black truffles. Oenophiles are spoilt for choice in France with its rich wine heritage; many of the world’s favourite grape varieties originated here and each region offers something unique, from the majestic châteaux of the Loire Valley to the stunning wine estates of Burgundy and the prestigious vineyards of the Côte de Rhone.

France’s countryside forms a colourful tapestry of vineyards, rolling green hills and medieval villages. The beautiful landscape includes Europe’s tallest sand dune, the snow-capped peaks of the French Alps and the vivid purple lavender fields of Provence. The verdant forests, deep gorges and tumbling waterfalls of the Dordogne have remained unchanged for centuries. Wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy the remote wilderness of the Camargue with its iconic pink flamingos, famous white horses and herds of black bulls.
