Ooh la la, France!

Just a short train journey, drive, or flight away, the alluring country of France is the answer to where you should go this weekend.

Brimming with high-class fashion, iconic art and masterful world-class food, holidays in France are a foodie’s dream, a fashionista’s heaven, and, frankly, everyone’s cup of tea.

You can relax on the long, golden sandy beaches of Cannes and Juan-les-Pins on the French Riviera in southern France. You can also stroll through the historic city streets of Paris or Nice where you may explore the wonderful shops and markets, or discover the ancient rural villages around Le Cannet; the possibilities, regions, and cheeses are endless.

Fanciful France

France offers the chance to take a long family beach holiday to Biarritz or Nice in the French Riviera, plan a short weekend break to Normandy, or pop over for a quick shopping trip in Paris. From the luxurious hotels within Paris to the comfortable chic country inns and cosy bed and breakfasts along the coast, there are more hotels in France than there are kinds of cheese – and trust us, there are a lot.

Indulge in the best of wine country in Bordeaux and Champagne or look out over the mountain peaks from Chamonix after a day on the slopes. There’s also a quiet beach getaway in the little-known French island of Corsica for romantic holidays in France.

It’s time for France

One of the most romantic countries in the world, France is full of ambience, seductive food, and cosy cafés, most of which can be found in City of Light itself, Paris. Whether you’re a shopper on a mission or a couple pining for a romantic weekend away, holidays in France are incomplete without Paris. Treat your taste buds throughout the country to mouth-watering and intricate dishes made with the freshest seasonal ingredients, accompanied, of course, with an expertly selected bottle of wine or beer.

For a laidback time strolling along the Mediterranean and indulging in fresh fare, there’s no better place than the south of France - charming Nice and bustling Marseilles in particular. Time your visit right for the incredible Cannes Film Festival or the height of spring when Provence transforms into a sea of purple and lavender, perfectly paired with the cerulean sky.

Kick things up a notch with some surfing – yes, surfing – in Biarritz in the summer or scale the French Alps in winter for phenomenal views as sweet as the chocolates and cakes of the country’s boulangeries. It’d also be a shame not to explore the Celtic influence in beautiful Brittany along the coast and learn a bit of Breton.

Out and about in France

Aside from the romance of the Seine and the Eiffel Tower, Paris is full of world-class museums, like the Louvre, and a variety of arrondissements like Montmartre that are brimming with captivating vistas and plenty of things to do while on holiday in France.

The history buffs can see where the Romans and Greeks left their mark in Marseilles and visit the gorgeously-restored city of Reims and its famous Gothic cathedral. Furthermore, walk along the same beaches in Normandy where the D-Day troops landed, explore the prehistoric cave paintings in Grotte de Lascaux, and marvel at the impressive Pont du Gard aqueduct in southern France.

Make sure to visit one of the most recognisable buildings in France, the abbey Mont-St-Michel, and be whisked away to the Middle Ages, or hike up the French Alps for a birds-eye view of jagged mountains covered in fluffy white snow.
