Family Travel in France

France is a country that has everything. The beautiful beaches of the Cote d’Azur and Brittany, the picturesque Alps and Pyrenees mountains, the chateaux of the Loire and Dordogne, the magic of Paris, and, of course the numerous wine regions and cities renowned for excellent French gastronomy such as Dijon, Lyon, and Tours.

And the great thing is that it is so easy to get to from the UK, with convenient ferry or Eurotunnel crossings if you’re doing a road trip or short-haul flights on budget airlines.

France offers something for everyone, and we go back year after year to explore a different region.
