Wine canva

Fashionable boulevards, glittering seaside resorts, historic monuments and genuine champagne.

While Bordeaux is France's most famous wine region and the Eiffel Tower one of the most distinguished landmarks in the world, France offers a deep visitor experience that goes far beyond.

While away the days on a canal boat cruise and discover France at a more relaxed pace. Delve into village markets for authentic local delicacies, stay in a beautiful chateau, manor or castle.  Explore the wine regions of the Loire Valley and Provence or meander the glittering beach resorts of the French Riviera.  

Experience the more sombre at the many war memorials, including the New Zealand memorial at Longueval in Somme, recognising the supreme contribution of ANZAC solders. 

Ask our expert travel consultants for their best recommendations on France so you can make the most of your visit to this fascinating destination.


Things you should know about France

Camembert is the cheese we most often associate with France.  It should be soft on the inside but not runny.

Beaches along the French Riviera are a mix of sand, pebble and gravel so it pays to do your research if you have a preference. 

The French network of waterways includes 100 canals and rivers totaling over 8,000km. Canal cruising is a popular way to discover the lesser known regions of France.
