France

From the glamour of Cannes, Nice and the Côte d’Azur alongside the sparkling Mediterranean to the rustic charm and rugged beauty of the Brittany coast, from sophisticated Biarritz set beneath the stunning Pyrenees to the history, culture and romance of Paris – la belle France has something special to offer every visitor.

Whether you are tempted by the fabulous French cuisine, the world-famous wines, the beautiful châteaux or the cultural splendour of France’s cities and towns you will be seduced by this country of rich variety and contrasts.

Imagine yourself sipping a Pastis in a shady provençal café in a hilltop village as you watch the locals playing pétanques (boules), stretched out on a sandy beach as the Atlantic rolls in or strolling through a colourful marketplace surrounded by the aroma of lavender and fresh flowers.

France has pioneered high-speed rail travel with the TGV (train à grande vitesse) now an established part of everyday life. It is so easy to get around France and view the ever-changing scenery from the comfort and style of a train.

Thanks to the distinctive nature of every region you can experience dramatically different landscapes, architecture, dialects, culture and food as you journey through this magnificent country.
