Luxury Holidays in France

From the dazzling beauty of the French Riviera to the iconic architecture of Paris, the snow-capped alpine mountains to the scent of purple-hued lavender fields in Provence, France has been seducing travellers as a luxury holiday destination for hundreds of years.

The capital city of Paris is one of the world’s most recognisable cities, with iconic landmarks including the cloud-piercing Eiffel Tower, majestic Sacre Coeur, the gothic gargoyles of the Notre Dame, and the romantic bridges crossing the River Seine. Here you can explore world-class art and architecture, shop in stylish designer boutiques, and feast on Michelin-starred cuisine washed down with some of the finest wines and champagnes in the world.

France’s Mediterranean coast is home to the Cote D’Azur, where the sun-drenched beaches of the glitzy French Riviera co-exist with charming fishing ports and fields of intoxicating lavender. The sophisticated towns of Cannes and St Tropez are the epitome of wealth and glamour; their palm-lined boulevards, luxurious yachts and designer bars a playground for the rich and famous.

Inland, the colossal peaks of the French Alps play host to some of the finest ski resorts in the world. From gentle beginners’ slopes to wild black runs, you can indulge your thirst for adventure during the day and spend your evenings enjoying a bustling après-ski scene.

With French cuisine certified as a “world intangible heritage” by UNESCO, no luxury holiday to France would be complete without a trip to its most celebrated wine regions, including Bordeaux, Burgundy, and the champagne regions of Reims and Épernay.
