Best Holiday Destinations In France

If you're looking for a holiday in France for you to really let your hair down, then there are a few different destinations that you can consider depending on what you're looking for. One of the best things about holidays in France is that you can enjoy a little bit of everything, from relaxation on the beach, culture, history and exquisite food. Here, we've put together a list of some of the very best holiday destinations in France to help you choose exactly where you want to go. If you are considering going to France for a holiday, or anywhere in Europe for that matter and you are an EU citizen, then it is important that you get an EHIC card, or have it renewed here:


Of course the capital of France was always going to make this list, and there are many reasons as to why it does. Not only can you immerse yourself in the incredible history and culture of the city, with landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame, but you can also explore the nightlife and shopping sides of the city to really make your holiday complete. On top of this, there are a number of museums and art galleries that you can visit such as the famous Louvre, and even have dinner and a cruise on the beautiful River Seine.

Cote D'Azur Coast

If you're looking for a beach holiday, there is none more popular than the Cote D'Azur coast. With beautiful beaches, chic resorts, sleepy villages and even exquisite historical monuments to enjoy, you are certain to find a little pinch of everything magical to make your holiday complete. The Cote D'Azur coast can get overcrowded during the peak summer months however, but there are a number of other nearby regions that you can look to in order to avoid the crowds such as the Luberon and the unspoilt natural beauty of the Verdon National Park (home to the beautiful Verdon Gorge).


If a quiet, unspoilt and delightfully simple holiday is what you're looking for then you may want to consider a break to Lille. Lille is probably one of the most underrated cities in France, and with a border with Belgium, you are certain to discover a huge number of Flemish influences remaining inside the city. With a beautifully historic centre characterised by 17 th century townhouses and cobblestone streets, you can be certain that Lille really is a city on the rise. With renowned art museums, excellent dining options and plenty of spectacular shopping areas, this cultural hub is the perfect place for a quieter French holiday location.


If you're a lover of wine, then a holiday to Bordeaux could be the perfect choice. With plenty of Gothic architecture to enjoy such as the Cathedrale Saint-Andre, plenty of mansions, art museums, the grand Place de la Bourse and of course the infamous vineyards, this is the ideal holiday location if you're looking for something a little different to the hustle and bustle of Paris. It is one of France's most vibrant and underrated cities to enjoy.
