Our French touring holidays enable you to embrace the warm spirit of the south: travel through landscapes of lyrical beauty on a choice of journeys by rail linking elegant and historic cities. Stay at authentic, hand-picked city hotels, from where you can enjoy delicious food, splendid wines and great art and architecture.
France’s southern regions have a distinct appeal, suffused by a renowned quality of light and a sun-drenched atmosphere that have drawn artists and writers for generations. Our France rail holidays are self-guided, allowing you to travel at your own pace while soaking up the seductive charms of Le Midi. Our detailed notes ensure you will come across sights, scents and flavours that will leave a lasting imprint on the memory.
Travel to France
Restrictions on travel between the UK and France mean that we cannot accept any new bookings from UK residents for autumn 2020 at the moment. We remain hopeful that restrictions will be eased and that we will be able to operate some French holidays before the end of the summer season. If you have a holiday booking with us, we will contact you nearer the time.
Looking further ahead, you can book a walking, cycling or touring holiday for summer 2021 at 2020 prices.
