Why go to France?
Click here for brochures from France specialists
  • An incredible variety of scenery, climate, history and culture.
  • Ancient stone towns and wide, sandy beaches of Brittany.
  • The magnificent gorges, hills and rolling countryside of Gascony, the Dorgdogne and the Ardeche.
  • The sun baked lavender fields of Provence and Languedoc.
  • The wild horses of the Camargue.
  • The majestic Pyrenees and Alps, the gentle Loire valley.
  • The lively, sophisticated and chic Cote d’Azur.
  • There are vineyards everywhere.
  • Fascinating towns with a wealth of cultural and historical interest throughout the whole country.
  • Each area is good for small children - the variety of scenery and towns/villages means that there is always plenty to do and see, and there is always plenty of space.
  • Loads of accommodation choices - hotels, resorts, gîtes, villas, chateaux, camping.
  • The food is, of course, a highlight, and the fixed price menus offered everywhere, from the poshest restaurant to the smallest café, are great value. Children love the variety.
  • Children are welcome everywhere, as an integral part of life, not an optional extra.
  • It’s easy to get to - giving a wide range of travel options - plane, boat, car, train, or a combination of all.
  • Excellent shopping and medical facilities.
  • Enough climate variations to suit everyone.

Things to think about:

  • It is easy to get to, but the size of the country means some self-catering properties can be a long drive from the airport/port.
  • Beaches on Riviera are pretty busy and you have to pay for a lot of them. Best to stick to West Coast, although sea is rougher. Check state of beaches in Brittany before booking - oil spills mainly cleaned up, but worth re-confirming.
  • Many areas don’t have beaches (although river beaches abound).
  • Relatively expensive.
