France

We offer some of the finest Châteaux and the most noteworthy hotels in the much-favoured regions of the country from the feudal north to the peaceful south.

A journey through France, with its ever-changing scenery, is always a delightful experience. Inspiring feudal architecture dominates the north, then softer landscapes appear leading to the renowned wine growing regions. Further south, mountain passes provide a welcome entrance to the idyllic hillside villages in Provence that have acted as a magnet to artists past and present. At the journey’s end, the sophistications of the Côte d’Azur are waiting to entice.

Whether it’s a short break or a more languid stay, good food and wine will be at the forefront of the holiday. Many of our hotels have Michelin and Gault Milleau awards for cuisine at its finest. The diversity of our holiday arrangements makes it possible for you visit one or as many of these as you wish.

Travel in your own car, select one of our easy fly-drive itineraries or just relax in one place - the choice is yours. Alternatively, on our two-centre holidays, you can even add Spain, Switzerland, Italy or the German Black Forest to your stay in France.
