France is the largest country in Western Europe, which means it has an incredible diversity of holiday destinations. Featuring over 3,000 km of coastline, 3 major mountain ranges and over 150,000 sq km of forest, there’s plenty of choice when it comes to landscapes. The long and rich history of the country has left many castles and fortified cities that take you on a journey back to the times of knights and maidens.

Besides its history and geography, France is especially famous for its cuisine. Each region has its own tasty specialities, such as Marseille’s seafood bouillabaisse or the hearty coq au vin stew of Burgundy. French cheeses and wines are held in particular esteem. There’s also the art and elegant fashions to explore in the nation’s capital city. With an excellent transport network, you can easily go from the high-end luxury and sophistication of the major cities to the rustic charm of the countryside. Depending on your mood, choose a romantic weekend in Paris, a culinary escape in Lyon, a beach getaway on the French Riviera or a skiing trip in Val d'Isère.
