Places to visit

From its charming countryside to its bustling cities, France has something for everyone to enjoy - but this means deciding where to go can be a daunting task. Luckily, at Scott Dunn, our travel experts know this beautiful country inside and out and are ready to help you plan a fantastic holiday and decide where to visit in France.

Whether it’s your first or fiftieth trip across the channel, Paris is one of our favourite places to visit in France. Known as the ‘City of Lights’, Paris is renowned for its fashionable boutiques, impressive architecture, intriguing museums and galleries and delicious French food. From a private tour of the Louvre to dining in one of the many Michelin-starred restaurants, there are endless things to see and do in this cosmopolitan capital, and our travel experts are passionate about helping you plan a great trip.

But, if you want to escape the busy city and tourists, France has plenty more to offer. The Loire Valley is a great place to visit in France to learn about the country’s rich culture and history as you tour the region’s many chateaux. You can also taste some of France’s best produce with a wine tasting at a local vineyard. Or, if you’re looking to relax, the Cote d’Azur is the ultimate holiday destination in France for a truly indulgent break. Sip cocktails in chic Riviera towns like Cannes and St Tropez or get back to nature with a stay in one of the area’s charming hilltop villages - the choice is yours.

Finally, for those who love to ski, no trip is complete without a visit to one of the most famous places in France - the Alps. From Chamonix to Méribel, we’ll help you find the best resorts and destinations for an unforgettable holiday on the slopes.

"Cannes is a perfect destination for beach lovers, with a stretch of beautiful sandy beaches along La Croisette. It is centrally located and one can access so many other spectacular villages by car or train. Calanque National Park is another must see while in the south of France. Whether it be by hiking or a private boat along the water, these impressive cliffs and coves are a true treasure of France. Champagne is another perfect day trip from Paris for those who enjoy a tipple of champagne. The famous Avenue de Champagne in Epernay is lined on both sides with famous Champagne houses such as Moet & Chandon."
