why travel to France?


Beautiful. Cultured. Historic. Charming. Vibrant. Artistic. Friendly. Amazing.

Travel to France and explore the regions, visit the cities and towns or enjoy beautiful villages.

Learn how to get there, how to get around, where to stay, and where to eat.


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.

Taste your way through regional and local dishes. And quaff the wines and spirits for which the country is rightly renowned.

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.
