France: Another world on your doorstep

So which region of France would you like to explore on your next holiday? To help you choose, here is a taster of three fabulous French regions we cover:

BRITTANY - Will you hike along the wild and dramatic Armor coastline or would you rather take the paths of the Argoat natural parks in the more private inland part of Brittany? Whichever path you choose, you will never be far from the blue ocean with breathtaking views and stunning beaches hidden amongst the rocks. Brittany is also a thriving cultural hub with many music festivals, a “penchant” for cider and great seafood dishes.

FRENCH RIVIERA - From Bandol and its famous vineyards overlooking the sea to Menton, known for its lemons and warm climate, the French Riviera at the dawn of the 21st century is still a place that people dream about. There are still plenty of areas that have been preserved, like the dreamy Hyères Islands (Porquerolles, Port-Cros and Île du Levant), a world apart from the concrete marinas. Whether you fancy cruising the glamorous coastline of the Cote d’Azur, shopping at Monte Carlo’s boutiques, taking part in Nice’s two-week carnival or driving around the stunning Massif de l’Esterel, the French Riviera is for you!

LANGUEDOC / TARN GORGES - Take some time to explore the Midi-Pyrénées region, a land of rugby, foie gras and cassoulet, but also of fishing, hiking and spas. Between the mountains and the sea, Languedoc Roussillon is a patchwork of little pays (‘lands’) which seem to have been specially designed for a family holiday! Approaching Carcassonne, you will be amazed by the silhouette of this medieval town whose ramparts and keeps are among the most striking in Europe.
