It may be a country renowned for its good food and wine but coach holidays to France will soon reveal that gastronomy is a just a small (and no doubt garlicky) but tasty portion of the other delights on offer. From the poignant landing beaches of Normandy to the alpine air of Chamonix, the chateaux of the unspoilt Loire Valley to landscapes brushed with rolling vineyards, France has a lot to fall in love with.
With Disneyland Paris and the capital forming two of the country's biggest draws, it's hard to overlook Paris on a coach holiday to France. Disneyland Paris offers families world-class attractions within a stone's throw of the UK with the chance to explore Paris at the same time, and Paris is such a romantic and cultural powerhouse that it speaks for itself. The fact that you could be cruising down the Seine one day, then cheering on the Tour de France or the adrenalin-buzzing Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe the next only adds to its excitement. Coach tours to these quintessentially French events do exist, and are a fantastic way to combine a moment in history with some sightseeing.
Away from Paris, a number of impressive destinations continue to add to that 'je ne sais quoi'. Cycle at low tide to the stunning backdrop of Mont St Michel or take a relaxing walk around Monet's Garden in Giverny. Slurp oysters in Gujan Mestras – the oyster farming capital of Bordeaux - and find out what goes into making real champagne with a tour of Moet and Chandon. Enter the world of William the Conqueror and admire the magnificent Bayeux Tapestry, holiday like an A-Lister on the star-studded French Riviera or take an exciting road trip through the beautiful Loire Valley. With so many France coach holidays on offer, culture, gastro and history lovers should not be disappointed.
