France

France is one of the world's great travel destinations. From Paris to Provence and Brittany to Burgundy, Alsace to Auvergne, there's something for everyone - and so it's little surprise that France consistently rates as one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world. And from the UK it's right on our doorstep, a mere hop across the Channel - making it the perfect place for a short break or a longer self-drive or tailor-made tour. [See France itinerary ideas]

Whether you're visiting the countless grand cathedrals and bastions of France's ancient cities or surfing the Atlantic breakers on the Côte d'Argent in Aquitaine, skiing the pure-white slopes of Chamonix or catching a glimpse of the Mona Lisa at the Louvre in Paris, France holidays are endlessly diverse and constantly inspiring.

Historically, France is one of Europe's most fascinating countries. Neanderthal civilisations are said to have been established here as long ago as 50,000 BC and, since then, empires have come and gone, kings have been crowned and some beheaded, and numerous wars have been won and lost - all of which have left behind landmarks and traditions that have shaped the French identity.

Today, her influence stretches way beyond her borders, whether through the country's leading role in the European Union or in former colonies in Africa, Asia and elsewhere, in which the French language and traditions remain. French food is one of the most familiar exports, the likes of tarte tartin, moules frites, duck confit and endless varieties of cheese enjoyed in many countries, but best enjoyed in France than anywhere else. And then of course there's the small matter of French wine - Bordeaux, Bourgueil, Burgundy and Champagne to name a few - each and every one iconic, distinct, and truly French.

The English playwright Charles Morgan once said ‘France is an idea necessary to civilisation'. Think of farmers' markets in the Loire Valley, artists working along the Seine in Paris, rowing boats in the La Venise Verte in Poitou-Charentes and the glamorous bars of the French Riviera and it'd be near impossible to disagree with him.

Our in depth guide packed with background information, sample itineraries designed by our experts and hand-picked suggestions for what to see and do, where to stay and when best to go.


When to go

"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast."
Ernest Hemingway

France has a fabulous variety of year-round attractions. Skiing is possible in the Alps from mid-December to late April in the main resorts, and even into summer on the high glaciers of Val d'Isère, Les Deux Alpes and l'Alpe d'Huez, while the lower slopes of the Alps, Jura and Pyrenees offer fabulous hiking and biking from spring to autumn. Paris seduces visitors all through the year, though springtime remains a perennial favourite; the Mediterranean coast and Corsica have mild winters and very hot summers, while the Atlantic coast is cooler but less crowded. Spring and early autumn are perfect for architectural tours around the châteaux of the Loire and the Dordogne, while the hills of Provence offer evening respite from soaring summer temperatures.

Festivals

"To live is not to breathe but to act. It is to make use of our organs, our senses, our faculties, of all the parts of ourselves which give us the sentiment of our existence. The man who has lived the most is not he who has counted the most years but he who has most felt life."
Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Émile

Visas

Please note that entry requirements and visa regulations can change often and at short notice. We can provide general information about the passport and visa requirements for your trip and this information may be included after the itinerary section of your quotation. Your specific passport and visa requirements and other immigration requirements are your responsibility and you should confirm these with the relevant Embassies and/or Consulates. Neither we nor the principal(s) or supplier(s) accept any responsibility if you cannot travel because you have not complied with any passport, visa or immigration requirements. Please call your WEXAS specialist if you wish to discuss entry requirements.

Passport requirements

Passports must be valid for the full duration of your stay. No additional period of validity is required.

Money

Currency

Euro notes and coins from all issuing countries are accepted. Bank notes are printed in values of €5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500, and coins come in 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20 and 50 cents and €1 and 2.

ATMs

ATMs are easy to find in France in all but the smallest villages, and are mostly linked to the Cirrus and Maestro networks. Credit cards can also usually be used to withdraw a cash advance.

Cash and EFTPOS

Always keep some cash on you for small purchases. If you wish to withdraw or exchange money over the counter, banks are normally open from 10 am to 5 pm from Monday to Friday in Paris, and the same hours from Tuesday to Saturday in the rest of France, but with a two-hour break for lunch at 1 pm. Credit and debit cards are accepted in most shops and restaurants, but often with a minimum purchase of around €15.

Guideline prices

The price of drinks in bars and cafés can seem a little high to visitors from Britain, especially in outdoor terrace seating in the main tourist areas, and when the pound is weak against the euro, but fresh produce and local wines can offer good value. Expect to pay around €2 for a coffee (espresso), and €4 for a café crème, a small beer or a soft drink, while a bottle of quaffable wine can be picked up in a supermarket for around €5. A meal for two in a mid-range restaurant is from around €50.
