The diverse attractions of France

In addition to being Western Europe's largest country, France is also the most varied. Many people head straight for Paris when they holiday in France, but the charm of France is in its diversity. The Alps, Languedoc, Burgundy, the Dordogne, the Loire Valley, Provence – each one has its unique countryside and historic villages, churches and castles. Every year millions of tourists visit France, each one with an idea of the perfect holiday.

Relaxing in the countryside

If you want to get away from it all, there are many places in France that are off the usual tourist route. Make use of village inns, staying in a gite, or simply going camping. The regions of Auvergne, Midi Pyrenees, Limousin, Lorraine and Franche Comte all contain areas where there are few tourists. These areas offer plenty of opportunities to just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. That is not to say that Paris should be ignored. After all, it is the home of attractions such as the Eiffel Tower, as well as being the centre of French politics, art and culture.

The wonders of Paris

Of course, any visitor to France should visit the Eiffel Tower. Versailles Palace, the home of the royal family until the French revolution, is also worth a visit. France has many churches in its cities, towns and villages, but Chartres Cathedral dominates them all. Built in the thirteenth century, much of the cathedral, including the stained glass windows, is still as it was when it was built. Away from the bustle of Paris, the island of St Michel is just off Normandy’s coast, and features a medieval town dominated by a Benedictine abbey.

Relax on the Riviera

What better way to enjoy the Summer months than to take a chic holiday on the Cote d'Azur? From ultra sophisticated Saint Tropez, Cannes & Monte Carlo (we know its strictly Monaco!) to camp sites of St Maxime or inland wonders such as the hill top town of Gassin you will find a holiday to suit your budget and taste. There's plenty of places just inland too if the sweltering sunshine isn’t your bag – have you thought about hiring a villa in say.

Skyscrapers, markets and gothic castles

The coastline of France has much to offer tourists in the summer, and for Summer visitors, the French Alps offer the best skiing in Europe. There are also some great opportunities in the Pyrenees, the Jura, the Vosges and other mountain ranges. France is also a popular location for business conferences. Paris, Nice, Cannes and Lyon are among the cities offering excellent conference facilities.
