- Much like its neighbours, Spain, Germany and Italy, France has some of the world’s best ski resorts. Head to Chamonix to ski in the shadow of Mont Blanc, Courchevel for some of the most luxurious hotels in the world, and the three valleys for varied skiing and fantastic après ski.
- When heading to France for the first time most people go straight to the capital. Paris, the city of lights, with its allure of romance, mystery and intrigue. The Eiffel Tower twinkling at night is a delight, and it doesn’t matter how often you see it. Beat the queues by walking up to the second platform. There are a lot of stairs but there is no rush and the views are specular. Other sites not to be missed in Paris include the Notre Dame, Louvre, Tuileries gardens, Montmartre and the Arc d’Triomphe.
- If you want to see some of the most stunning chateaux in France, then head to the Loire Valley. In one day you can experience a whistle-stop tour of French architecture by visiting Château de Chambord, Chenonceau, Blois and Cheverny. In the summer, hire a bike and cycle along the banks of the Loire to experience the tranquillity and beauty of the area.
- Follow in the footsteps of many movie stars and enjoy a break on the French Riviera. Nice’s legendary promenade, beaches and belle époque architecture make it the perfect place to base yourself. Enjoy day trips to Cannes, Monaco and St Tropez and live the life of a Hollywood star for a few days.
