France - Touring Holidays

An escorted tour to France is the perfect way to explore this wonderfully diverse country, where no two regions are the same. From elegant cities to beautiful chateaux and rolling vineyards to stylish seaside resorts, there’s so much to explore in a country which lies, at its shortest distance, just 20 miles off the coast of Kent.

Elegant Paris

France’s elegant capital, Paris is bursting with iconic landmarks and spectacular architecture. Take in the magnificent Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Gothic Cathedral of Notre Dame and stroll along the famous Champs Élysées, before taking a seat in one of the inviting pavement cafés.

France’s gardens and châteaux

Less than 15 miles from central Paris, the Château de Versailles is one of France’s most famous palaces and the beautiful gardens here are a masterpiece of landscape design. In the pretty Seine-side village of Giverny, you can stroll through Claude Monet’s gardens and admire the famous Japanese bridge, water lilies, wisteria and weeping willows captured in so many of his works.

Scattered across the countryside in the Loire Valley are many elaborate castles and fortresses. From the fabulous gardens of Château de Villandry to the elegant Château de Chenonceau, these spectacular sights are a joy to behold.

Fine French wines and culinary delights

If sampling fine wines is something you enjoy, you’ll be spoilt for choice in France. Bordeaux, in the south west, is one of the world’s most famous wine regions and not too far from here, along the banks of the Garonne and Gironde Rivers, you’ll also find the Médoc and Blaye regions, famed for their elegant red wines.

In the Dordogne, the charming town of Sarlat is a showcase of Medieval and Renaissance architecture. From here you can discover an area famed for its gastronomic delights. Hunt for truffles, the ‘Black Diamonds of the Dordogne’ and explore Rocamadour, the town which gives its name to the goat’s cheese produced in the vicinity.

The glitz and glamour of the French Riviera

In the south of France, is the sun-drenched Côte d’Azur. Here, along the shores of the Mediterranean, lie some of France’s most chic seaside resorts. Discover Cannes, home to the famous film festival, where you can wander through the picturesque old town, browse designer boutiques or simply relax on a sweeping sandy beach. In the pretty port of St Tropez, glamourous yachts bob peacefully in the water and an impressive citadel overlooks the resort offering fabulous views out to sea.
