France Holidays

Read more about France

Oozing sophisticated charm , picture-perfect coastlines, and quaint seaside towns the irresistible call of France has been enticing sun seeking holidaymakers to its shores for years. Historians, fashionistas and beach lovers from all walks of life are guaranteed to have a great holiday on the French coast.

Beaches
With a name like Côte d'Azur (meaning the Azure Coast), you know that you’re in for a good time. From the golden shores of Cannes and blue waters of St Tropez to the bustling beaches of Nice, the French Riviera is a great choice for a trendy beach break in the sun.

Food & Drink
Nothing conjures up images of French cuisine more than a selection of fresh bakes from the boulangerie (that’s bakery to you and me), delicious cheeses, and patisserie-perfect pastries. Treat yourself to a tasty tour of the country with French favourites like croque monsieur, ratatouille, coq au vin and creamy bisque soups. Round your meals off with delicious desserts like soufflé, crème brûlée, and profiteroles accompanied by a delicious selection of locally produced wines .

Culture
Effortlessly stylish and enviously laid back, French culture has been inspiring the rest of the world for centuries. Whether they’re taking the time to enjoy a good meal with their nearest and dearest, sipping an espresso in the park, or just enjoying a stroll along the beachfront, French life is all about finding that ‘Joie de vivre’ (joy of living) and enjoying life to the full whenever you can.

Nightlife
From sophisticated cocktail bars and hidden pubs to buzzing nightclubs, France’s nightlife scene lets you kick back and relax or hit the dancefloor at your leisure. Dance the night away in St. Tropez’s Les Caves du Roy, sip cocktails in Nice’s Puzzle Bar, or enjoy live music in Cannes at Morrisons Irish Pub.

Whether you’re lucky enough to bag yourself a ticket or just want to enjoy the atmosphere, the French Riviera gets a taste of Hollywood with the Cannes Film Festival every May.
