Bienvenue en France! Known as the origin of fine wines, integral grapes such as Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, and champagne, the vin offerings are renowned, and are served by sommeliers world-wide. The architecture and surroundings vary from place to place, from the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris, to plains of aromatic lavender in rural Provence, or the soothing sunshine of the Cote D’Azure. France has a magical je ne sais quoi in the air.
The land of croissants, crêpes and artisan patisseries prompts a swift ‘ooh la la’ from its visitors once they step off the plane on their luxury European holiday. If you like your beef rare, snails garlicky and cheeses gooey, France is the family holiday destination in Europe for you. There are other dining options however; as with any luxury holiday destination worth visiting, France caters to a variety of tastes. Quaint cafes underneath renaissance châteaux and villages make for the perfect spot for a romantic rendezvous before heading to the original beauty of Monet’s impressionist artwork. Contrary to what the stereotypes have led us to believe, French fashion doesn’t actually involve berets or stripes, but is up there amongst the most fashionable – especially in Paris, with its haute-couture boutiques lining the streets. Sacré bleu! France has so much to offer!

Cote D’Azure, literally translating to the ‘Azure Coast’, is also known as the French Riviera to the British. Stay at its most lavish resort, Cap Estel, located between Monaco and the largest city in the Riviera (Nice) for an elegant time away. Also home to the Cannes Film Festival, the Cote D’Azure is a cultural hub in the south of France, and is well worth a visit.
Experience true, unadulterated, rural French beauty in Provence. Gaze at row upon row of fragrant lavender which populates many a field, beside rustic farm buildings and surrounding views of the clustering villages. Wander among the herby plains, happen upon vineyards, friendly locals and rocky masses before strolling back to your luxury resort: Terre Blanche. Provence lives up to its name; it is, in a word, Provençal.
