France is a land of overwhelming riches. From the golden beaches of the south to the soaring snowy peaks of the Alps, past the vineyards of Bordeaux and the pastoral valleys of the Dordogne - a lifetime of exploring would prove too little time to take in such limitless beauty.
At just a short hop over the Channel, it would be hard to argue the case for a better choice for the savvy British holidaymaker than a holiday in France.
Paris, fabled as the world's most romantic city. A glittering beacon of chic and glamour, magnificent and cosmopolitan, the superlatives are endless. And it is well-deserved. Almost absurdly beautiful from the grandest tree-lined boulevard to the smallest cafÃ©, via the industrial elegance of the Eiffel Tower itself, Paris is an unforgettable experience.
The dining is the best in the world, the shopping world-class, the architecture from Notre Dame to the Arc de Triumphe breathtaking, while many of the most celebrated works of art can be seen within the walls of the Louvre. Those on a family holiday in France can even take the kids to Disneyland Paris.
The Mediterranean south...
If it's sun you're seeking on your holiday to France, head south to the Cote d'Azur. Nice remains one of the most popular destinations with a glamorous history, golden beaches and near year-round sunshine. Alternatively, rub shoulders with the rich and famous in Saint Tropez, or party the night away in vibrant Marseille.
Food & wine...
The gastronomic capital of the world, holidays to France offer the chance for a little well-deserved indulgence, be it cheese (France produces more varieties than the rest of the world put together), bouillabaisse or l'escargot, there is an embarrassment of culinary delights to enjoy.
France, however, comes into its own with winemaking, and what better holiday to France can there be than one that takes in the rolling vineyards of the wine regions while enjoying a tipple or two!
Burgundy and Champagne remain popular wine region destinations, while the Loire Valley and the Dordogne, with their picture-perfect chÃ¢teaux and rural beauty are world-famous destinations too.
