France Touring

Cross Border Touring button

Here, we set out a few ideas for touring holidays of France. They are designed to give you inspiration and only cover a fraction of all the destinations we
have to offer. The possibilities are endless! An itinerary can be tailored to your precise wishes – you choose which regions and properties you wish to visit, how long you wish to stay and how you would like to travel between them. There is no need to retrace your steps as we can fly you into one airport and back from another. If you are taking your own car, the ferry points in France & Spain can be used one-way in either direction.
