Interesting destinations in France

edited April 2015 in - France
Hi the forum! I am keen to start planning a holiday in France but now that I've started looking into possible destinations I am finding the options quite overwhelming. I have been to Paris and loved it, but would now like to experience a different part of France. I would welcome any advice on interesting and historic parts of the country to explore? What would you recommend for a French holiday?

    One of my favourite places in France is Languedoc , steeped in history, the coastline is on the Mediterranean and the scenery is breathtaking. Read more here

    Take a look at the About France website for more information

  • Hi Wren,
    France offers so many different types of holidays! What kind of thing appeals to you? Wine routes, coastal breaks, archaeological sites, military history? Or maybe hiking or cycling routes? Give me a little more information and I can make some more informed recommendations. For now, check out this France Travel Guide for some ideas and outlines of some of the most popular regions and cities to visit.

    I have stayed in the Côte-d'Or region of France. An easy 2-3 hour train trip from Paris. Friendly people, brilliant food and of course wine!
  • As Ella says, it really depends on what you want to do with your holiday! However if you don't have anything in mind at all, a good way of experiencing lots of different places in France is by river cruise. This will give you a taste of the different regions and then you can decide where perhaps you would like to spend longer, another time... Here are a couple of blogs from people who have been on river cruises so you can get an idea of what it's like and what you can do/see: Top 10 Places to River Cruise in France and Normandy Landing Beaches Hope you have a wonderful holiday, whatever you end up doing!

    But there is no mistake when travelling to France, anything you choose will be great!

  • maybe Nica, Kan or Sn. Tropes, or Provence will meet your taste and desires?
  • I agree the South of France is a really great destination. The weather is beautiful and there are so many things to do and places to see. Why not check out St Tropez, Nice, Cannes and Monaco. If you go at the right time you could catch the Cannes Film festival and the Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo. There are lots of picturesque small towns and villages right along the coast of France and into Italy too, so it would be great to hire a car as well.
  • I have recently discovered Provence. It remains amazingly unspoilt, the scenery is beautiful (it inspired Van Gogh and other famous artists), the weather in the summer is fantastic, the food's delicious and it is mostly uncrowded unlike the south of France. Aix en Provence is the main city, and has a good market.
