One of the many things that France does well, is luxury holidays. You could find yourself kicking back on the French Riviera, delving into cultural delights in Paris, or breathing in the fresh air atop a dramatic hillside in Provence.
Sumptuous boltholes, picture-perfect vistas and iconic sights are just part and parcel of the landscape here in glorious France, giving you ample opportunity to create a tailor-made trip that matches all your whims and fancies.
Paris is a city hot on the wish list of any curious traveller. Known for its romance, art, fashion and culture, there’s more than one way to spend your days during your time here. Climbing the Eiffel Tower, ogling gargoyles at Notre Dame, or soaking up the world-class treasures housed in museums like the Louvre are just some of the options sure to titillate.
Gastronomic adventures are assured across the city’s eateries, spanning the many Michelin-starred restaurants like L'Arpège, to the humble, traditional bistro. And if you’re after a sublime, artsy, urban hotel, places like Le Bristol will please beyond measure.
From the hustle and bustle of Paris to the sedate seclusion of the hills, Provence brings you dizzying views and a chance to get a lungful of feel-good fresh air. The snow-capped Alps are the ultimate destination for avid skiers throughout the year, and the countryside spreads right across to the dazzling Cote d’Azur with its sandy beaches and glorious sunshine.
Dotted with dreamlike historic hamlets and home to Europe’s greatest canyon, there’s more than one kind of holiday to be had in this expansive region. To give you a flavour of what’s on offer, hotels include those like the super-smart Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort complete with soaring views.
For anyone looking for old-world glam, laidback vibes and supreme luxury, the French Riviera ticks every box. Elegant retreats like the Royal Riviera will leave you feeling godly from the moment you step through the doors. Hop from sophisticated spots like Cannes, Nice and Monte Carlo, or simply lay back on the nearest beach and allow the warm sunshine to soothe away your worldly worries.
Unique in its history and culture, crammed with must-see sights and blessed with idyllic green spaces, towering mountains, and postcard worthy beaches, France offers the kind of holiday that’s hard to beat.
