Family holidays across France

Why is France so good at offering family holidays to France?  Possibly because each region of France offers something different – from beautiful coastlines, towering  mountains, beautiful valleys, river gorges and much more.

It can almost feel like you are visiting a different country each time you go somewhere new.

Family beach holidays in France

Every region offers great tourist attractions and has it’s own unique character, from the Vendée or Côte D’Azur beaches to the Mountains of the Alps or Pyrénées, from the Vineyards of the Loire or Rhône to the history of Dordogne, Provence or Normandy.

France for Families has a wealth of tourist information on each region including the best towns, attractions, vineyards, beaches and kids favourites, as well as practical information on eating out, shopping, weather….  The vast majority of the places listed have been personally visited by either ourselves or friends and relatives.  We are continually extending the site content so we welcome feedback of any kind.
