France

More than two thirds of the French spend their holidays in their own country and it's easy to see why: they know how to live in style.

Discover France on our award-winning tours

A country that knows how to live

If you love food and wine, you’ll love France. The bread alone is reason enough to visit. Paris is a must-see if you love art, architecture, wide avenues and historic monuments. And of course, if you want to set eyes on the glittering Eiffel Tower.

Insiders guide to France

Paris

France's capital city is packed with cafes, bistros and boutiques, and changes character as you pass through each street. Soak up the markets that line the Rue Mouffetard and experience the heady aroma of cheeses, roasting birds, and freshly-made baguettes and crêpes.

Travel the length of the Champs Élysées, passing under the Arc de Triomphe, and circle around the Place de la Concorde. See the former Royal Palace, and enjoy exclusive VIP access to the Eiffel Tower, before you rise to the second floor to enjoy a 360° view of the city.

Wine

France is celebrated as the world's number one producer of wine. Visit the country's finest wine regions and discover the art and science of wine-making. And enjoy a glass or three for yourself – whether it’s the classic full-bodied fruitiness of a Pinot Noir or a zesty-but-smooth Chardonnay.

Stay in Bordeaux, the world's wine capital. Or come with us to Beaune, a picturesque, walled-city where you’ll have the opportunity to sample the Burgundy wines in an authentic wine-maker's cellar.

Loire Valley

The Loire region’s châteaux, palaces and mansions are exceptionally beautiful. Spanning some 170 miles, UNESCO granted the region between Sully-sur-Loire and Chalonnes a World Heritage award in 2000. Visit Château de Chenonceau, a beautiful country villa inspired by the Italian Renaissance and encircled by a moat. If you do drop by, check out the incredible art collection.

Christmas in France

Cities, towns and villages all over France light up in November when festive lights adorn the streets.

In Paris, the trees along the Champs-Elysées are draped with fairy lights, and famous department stores like Galeries Lafayette and Printemps are decorated with elaborate window displays. In many French households, gift-giving takes place on Christmas Eve, or early on Christmas morning, when people return from midnight mass to a meal called Réveillon. The family tuck into this luxurious feast, comprising dishes like foie gras, smoked salmon, oysters and snails.

Join us on a tour of France over the Christmas period and you’ll enjoy traditional festive celebrations and food.
