Best of France

You’ll find France offers beautiful cities to explore. There are stunning countryside views to lose yourself in each day. Each town and village offer something unique and incredible to find.

Paris is an obvious choice to think about when considering the best of France. It is frequently named as one of the best places in the world to visit. With iconic landmarks and world-class museums, it is a natural choice as a destination. There are options outside of Paris worth considering as well.

Nice

Located on the French Riviera, beautiful Nice welcomes one and all to create their own adventure. You’ll find beach access is plentiful. The museums here are engaging. There are boutique shops that tempt you with their magnificent finds. Baroque palaces glimmer in the sunshine. Travel in March or late September to take some of the edge off the cost if necessary to experience this stunning city.

Grenoble

Not only is Grenoble famous for being the gateway to excellent ski resorts and the key to world-class skiing in the French Alps, but the city itself is also rich in history, cultural events and worth checking out before you hit the slopes. From there, choose from nearly two dozen ski resorts around the city including Alpe d’Huez, Les Deux Alpes, and La Grave—all less than 90 minutes away by car. Drive a little further and you will reach Courchevel, Megève, Méribel, Les Gets, Morzine and Les Houches. Don’t forego planning summer holidays to France as there’s much to do—hiking, biking and other warm-weather activities—in and around the French Alps as well as in most parts of the country.

Lyon

Lyon is perfectly located for those looking to head to the ski resorts of Val-d’Isere and Tignes. If you’re looking for a city break rather than a ski break, then Lyon is a great choice. With a number of historical sites you’ll have plenty of sites to spend your days wandering around.

Aix-en-Provence

Time in France already moves at its own leisurely pace. When you visit this town, you’ll discover that it has an even slower gear. Enjoy getting lost in the streets of the city for a while. You might find a lively market to enjoy. There are cozy cafés that offer a great cup of coffee. Linger along the wide boulevards. Make sure to add the Le Grand Marche to your itinerary as well.

Cannes

Many visit Cannes each year to attend is world-famous film festival. What many may not realize is that this city is equally impressive throughout the rest of the year. It’s another stop on the French Riviera, giving you a chance to find your own brand of relaxation. Be sure to stroll along the lengthy promenade to find something that you will treasure.

Bordeaux

This region often brings in travelers looking to experience its famous wine on a first-hand basis. More than 100,000 vineyards are currently managed here, after all. As you explore, you’ll find other wonders available as well, like Gothic cathedrals, stone bridges, and iconic plazas. Let the sunshine warm your face, have the wine warm your belly, and the hospitality of this region warm your heart.

Loire Valley

The entire region is listed as a world heritage site because of its historic villages. There may not be a more romantic spot in France as a holiday destination – Paris included. The atmosphere here is relaxed and peaceful, with the occasional farm or winery offering tours. Find yourself a quaint chateau, wander at your own pace, and you will experience something intensely wonderful.

Burgundy

The rolling hills of this region host an array of vineyards as well. You’ll also find yourself exploring ancient abbeys, Medieval villages, and interesting museums as you embrace the local culture. When sunsets hit the hills, the glow remaining feels almost magical.

The best of France brings families together. It encourages everyone to explore at their own pace. It invites you to cast of stress, embrace happiness, and find a deep sense of inner peace. Discover these destinations and you will long remember the experience.
