About France

Highlights of France Summary

Add to Shortlist

Days 1-2 Paris

Rich in museums, art galleries, monuments, fashion and fabulous food, Paris offers a wealth of major sights and hidden treasures to discover.

Days 3-4 Dijon/Beaune

The capital of France's culturally rich Burgundy Province, Dijon boasts a delightful city centre, numerous medieval and renaissance buildings, and labyrinthine streets filled with charming shops and restaurants. Beaune is located in the wine region of the Cote d'Or, an area that produces some of the best wines in France and is made up of the Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits, where vineyards stretch as far as the eye can see. The best Burgundy wines are grown here in the golden-red soil, hence the name Cote d'Or (land of gold).

Day 5 Sainte Sabine - Chateau Stay

Spend a night in a traditional French château and feel as though you’ve stepped back in time while exploring the grounds and soaking up views across the French countryside.

Days 6-7 Avignon

An elegant, walled city in Provence's most picturesque valley, Avignon is home to an impressive collection of art, a grand papal palace and the Pont St-Benezet.

Days 8-9 Nice

Nestled elegantly on the Riviera, Nice boasts stunning beaches, colourful markets, and impressive architecture - and is a wonderful base to further explore the famed Cote d'Azur.
