Immerse yourself in France

Sophisticated culture and unforgettable sights 

Wander the romantic streets of Montmarte, or be bowled over by the sights of Loire Valley. Whether it’s quaint countryside, or the awe-inspiring atmosphere of the city, France has it all. 

Loire Valley

Venture to the Loire Valley and take your pick of the charming châteaux and striking mansions that adorn this 170 mile area of French countryside. Make sure you have your camera ready as you visit one of the most fascinating, the Château de Chenonceau. Witness the picture perfect castle as it stands beautifully across the River Cher. Why not take a trip inside and immerse yourself in the grandeur of the Renaissance whilst you explore a priceless collection of art. Travel through this breathtaking landscape and arrive at the small market town of Amboise, home to the Chateau Chambord and, as legend has it, where world-renowned Leonardo da Vinci is buried.

Lourdes

The famed township of Lourdes sits at the foothills of the snow-dusted Pyrenees Mountains, and for the past 200 years has remained a sacred site journeyed to by millions. As a result of holy sightings in the latter half of the 19th century, Lourdes is now famed for its religious significance, and continues to welcome the feet of thousands each year. If you have the chance, venture out after dark and take part in a breathtaking torchlight procession. Cast your eyes on the Rosary Basilica as it sits above the sacred St Bernadette’s Grotto, and witness the beautiful Byzantine influences that echo throughout its structure.
