France vacations 2022 & 2023

The birthplace of Versailles and Sun King Louis XIV's grand ambitions, and the cradle of radical creative movements from Impressionism to New Wave cinema: France has long been a game changer. Our specialists can show you how to explore the country that has turned the good life into an art form. And they’d argue that, even today, no other capital offers quite the same architectural homage to beauty, and patina of romance, as Paris.

Our specialists can craft a vacation to France that takes in its landscapes, from the mountains of the Rhône-Alpes to Provence’s lavender fields and the Riviera’s Mediterranean. They’ll also include the country’s historic sites, like the chateaux that stud the Loire Valley and the D-Day landing beaches in Normandy. Then, gastronomy-wise, they can point you in the direction of the best local produce markets, AOC-designated wineries and one-off experiences, not just in culinary hubs like Bordeaux and Lyon, but across the whole country.
