Check out the country's natural beauty, the wonderful beaches and its magnificent coastline. Marvel at the high mountains of the Pyrenees, the Alps and the Auvergne.

Enjoy the music and art, the culture and festivals. Bathe in the remarkable luminescence of light that so enthralled artists, past and present.


What is the france travel guide?

The France Travel Guide is fiercely independent. We're not trying to sell you a holiday and we're not a front for a travel operator. But we do accept advertising from hotels, chateaus and guest houses.

We may even recommend a product or two which we think you'll find appealing. But there's no cost to you for using this website. Over 300 pages of great information are freely available. 

Enjoy the France Travel Guide with our compliments.
