Places to visit

From its charming countryside and mediaeval towns to its bustling cities, France has something for everyone to enjoy. 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.

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 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, especially during the holiday season. Paris is a magical destination for Christmas with its stunning decorations, Christmas markets, and festive concerts.

But, if you want to escape the busy city and tourists, France has plenty more to offer. The entire 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 châteaux, including the famous castle in the medieval town of Blois. 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 place to visit in the South of 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 vacation 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 you 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. For a taste of the local culture, be sure to visit Marche Forville where you can buy fresh local produce in the charming Le Suquet area."
