It’s amazing how much you can pack into a short break in France. Choose a short walking break in France’s most alluring countryside – Roman Provence, perhaps, or the Alps – and you can discover far-reaching views and charming villages.

On a short cycling break in the Loire or Provence, not only can you enjoy some great cycling amid beautiful scenery, but you can also visit various places of interest en route.

Our Paris city breaks needn’t be quite so energetic, but with so many monuments, museums and galleries, there is plenty to fill your days.

On top of all this, you can add warm hospitality and delicious cuisine – two ingredients common to all our short breaks in France. Weekend breaks have never been so relaxing!

Whatever type of break you choose, we provide you with detailed information about the local area so that you can get the most from your time away.
