Destinations in France

  • France’s south-westernmost region is a lush, green pocket of land caught between the mountains and the windswept Atlantic coast.
  • Bordeaux is a city of grandeur and sophistication, of old money and legendary vintages, where connoisseurs can take the time to savour wines and cuisine perfected over generations.
  • Rugged, windswept Brittany in north-west France is the coastal twin of Cornwall, and its happy-holidays charm matches its UK sister’s in buckets and spades.
  • Located in the heart of France, Burgundy is a region of peaceful canals, well-tended vineyards and rural charm – the epitome of la vie Française.
  • Charente-Maritime has all the charms of both riviera and campagne. Swimwear-clad Français flock to its shores in summer, but it remains under the radar, especially its verdant interior. And, it's known for superb seafood and high-end spirits.
  • Corsica is the ultimate short-haul adventure, tightly packing in all of the natural world’s best bits. It’s got mountains, fields and shimmering coastline. And it has a wild side too: wild boar wander and tortoises totter freely by your feet.
  • On the coast that defined seaside glamour, you can never be too rich or too brown.
  • In the warm valleys of southwestern France, where the Dordogne, Isle and Lot rivers wriggle their way to the Atlantic, the lush landscape, sunny days and mild temperatures combine to produce perfect conditions for grapes and truffles.
  • Sprawling from the chestnut-dotted Cévennes Mountains to a flamingo-flanked Mediterranean Coast, by way of magnificent ancient cities and rolling winelands, this region has reason to puff out its chest when declaring its geographical and metropolitan offerings.
  • A vast rural region of castles, Camembert and clifftops, Normandy is as rich in history as it is in mouthwatering rustic produce.
  • Paris is a dream project for pedestrians, with endless secrets hidden away from all the wonderful clichés.
  • Topped by the Loire valley, tailed by Bordeaux, cooled by Atlantic breezes, Poitou-Charentes is the home of cognac, and a coast-to-country destination par excellence.
  • The south-west area of Provence is a land of light and colour, where the languid river Rhône winds its way through fruit orchards and fields of lavender before melting into the watery maze of the Camargue.
  • Named for the river running through it and the mountains at its edge, Rhône-Alpes is a region of vinous valleys, mighty peaks, lakeside spa towns and scenic drives.
  • The rose-coloured streets of Toulouse are lined with Mediaeval cathedrals, museums and cafés serving the area’s meaty treats. This ancient city is skyrocketing its way into the future – with its aerospace industry, the sky’s the limit.
