France Holidays

Travel with us to explore the history and beauty of France on one of our guided tours. France is a country where charm and culture can be found wherever we go. With its abundance of astounding historic buildings, stunning beaches and captivating countryside, it’s easy to see why France is the most visited country in the world. 

France, officially the French Republic, is a country whose territory consists of metropolitan France in Western Europe, as well as several overseas regions and territories. The metropolitan area of France extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea and from the Rhine to the Atlantic Ocean. Despite the geographic closeness, there is enough about France to make us feel that it truly is somewhere new, somewhere different and somewhere very special. 

France is a delightful treat for the senses and arguably the cultural capital of the world. In fact, there are so many amazing sights to see, from the romance of Paris to the sunshine of the south, it can be a challenge to decide which region to visit.

We have over 25 years of experience planning and leading holidays to this incredible country and offer a selection of holidays to suit your needs. For those interested in warm weather and beautiful beaches, enjoy a relaxing French riviera holiday on our Cannes and Cote D'azur tour.

Our Discover Provence, including Avignon & Arles tour combines history, nature, beautiful coastline, local traditions and Provencal wine. Take a 3-night city break and discover Nice, one of the most sophisticated and enchanting locations on the French Riviera. To discover more of the highlights of France in a unique way, join us on a Seine River Cruise, including stops in the famous cities of Paris and Rouen.

As on all of our holidays, we’ve included return flights, with departures from Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh, London and Bristol, accommodation, transfers and an exciting array of excursions with expert, local guides.
