FAQs about our luxury France vacations

  • When's the best time to go on a vacation in France?

    The best time for a France vacation depends on the type of trip you want as France is truly a year-round destination.

    If you’re looking to focus on hot spots, like Paris or the wine regions, late spring and early fall are the best times to go. This is before the summer crowds (and heat) start to creep in, but you’ll still have the advantage of long sunny days and low rainfall.

    If you’re looking for southern France vacations, June to August is the best time to visit, with the markets in full swing and the coast alive with sunbathers, water sports, and glamorous dining. Prefer the slopes? Then from December to April, head to the French Alps for some of the best skiing in Europe.

  • Are France vacations good for families?

    Luxury France vacations are an excellent choice for family trips, with so many types of vacations on offer.

    For adventure, head during the ski season for active days and cozy nights sitting by the chalet fire. Or if you prefer the outdoors during summer, the mountains become an incredible sight, bursting with wildflowers, crisp blue skies, and activities like rope courses, rafting and paragliding.

    If you’re looking to slow down, northern and southern France vacations show a pared-back pace of life – with the north offering a glimpse into the past and quiet reflection and the south beckoning you to wander aimlessly through its charming villages and lavender fields.

  • Is a France vacation ideal for couples?

    France vacations are an excellent choice for couples. Whether you’re searching for romance, outdoor adventures, or a bit of R&R, France is ready to offer it all.
