France’s southern regions hold a special allure. From Aquitaine and the wine country of the Gironde on the Atlantic Coast, through vast and beautiful Languedoc-Roussillon – curling around the edge of the Mediterranean’s Golfe du Lion – to the delights of Provence and the Côte d’Azur, you encounter sun-drenched and irresistibly seductive landscapes, and hugely rewarding cities and towns that give full expression to the warm spirit of the south.

Embark on a magical journey from sea to dazzling sea, whizzing past celebrated vineyards, swathes of lavender and fertile wetlands as you travel from elegant Bordeaux with its broad avenues and wine merchants, via turreted Carcassonne and the bishops’ city of Avignon on the mighty Rhône, to vibrant, Italianate Nice, with its swaying palms and plentiful sunshine. Along the way, savour the renowned French gastronomy – and some fabulous works of art. Enjoy the ride!
