Home to some of the best beaches in Europe, France is framed by soaring chalk cliffs and history-soaked towns to the north, dramatic landscapes to the west, and sleepy, secret coves and sparkling turquoise waters to the south. Head to the beaches of Normandy and Brittany if you are after family-friendly havens, cool surf spots and towns oozing with a rich history. You’ll find towering white-cliffs standing guard over golden-sand beaches in Normandy, or you might fancy the stunning landscapes, wild dunes and hidden coves that make up some much of Brittany’s coastline. Spend your days exploring sea caves in a kayak,
discovering picturesque port towns, or if you are feeling more adventurous, you could go hiking, mountain biking and rock-climbing. If your France beach holidays take you to the west of the country, you are in luck - sandy beaches are easy to find when you are looking in the Île de Ré. Long stretches of sand are bordered by pine forests to one side and the Atlantic Ocean to the other. All along the west coast you’ll find beaches that are perfect for basking in the sun and surfing Atlantic waves, and laid-back seaside towns that dot the coastline. You’ll be spoilt for choice if your France beach holidays take you to the south of France. From the glamorous people-watching destinations in Saint-Tropez, to the sheltered coves surrounded by lush forests in Calanques National Park, the south of France is Mediterranean beach bliss – think sparkling seas, white sand, elegant beach clubs, charming villages and hidden coves.

The skiing was great – so much snow (almost too much) and the place we stayed in Tignes was great. Paris was great – The Keppler was perfect. It was very friendly, comfortable, efficient and well located. A great weekend, thanks for arranging it. Great recommendations!
