For a Taste of the Good Life, Vacation in La Belle France

Museums, romance, food, fashion, architecture, art—to vacation in France is to experience fine living. This is a country that has inspired many brilliant painters, and its charming heritage continues to fascinate the modern traveler. When a capital city has some of the world’s most famous attractions, and a country is the most visited tourist destination in the world, where do you begin? Start and end in Paris, for sure. But once you’ve inhaled its iconic architecture, world-class galleries and museums, and lounged at terrace cafés, patisseries, and bistros, move on to make your acquaintance with what the rest of France has to offer. Get an Enchanting Travels expert to help plan your itinerary, or you may never leave the magnificent “City of Light”, world headquarters for fine dining, legendary designers, and haute couture.

Not far from Paris, go castle- and chateau-hopping in the Loire Valley and immerse yourself in some of the finest traditions of wine making and gourmet dining. Wine-lovers cannot miss a visit France’s wine capital Bordeaux where wine bars and picturesque outlying estates allow you to taste the splendorous wines produced here. A food, market, or degustation tour may be the best way to explore this region, but Bordeaux is also one of France’s many UNESCO World Heritage sites.

The Provence region, famous for endless fields of lavender and wine estates that produce the most perfect pink rosé wine, is dotted with storybook pretty towns and villages. The southernmost part of this province is the French Riviera or the Côte d’Azur, lined with chic seaside resorts. Relive medieval history in Provence’s riverside city of Avignon and spend a while in sunny Nice, which has the added attraction of being a hotbed of culture and art. 

Close to the Rhône Valley and the vineyards of Provence and Burgundy, the city of Lyon is often considered France’s traditional gastronomic capital. Savor French cuisine at the best bouchons, but don’t neglect to marvel at the city’s Renaissance architectural gems and exquisite museums.   

World War II history buffs must make a pit stop at Normandy’s beaches or other D-Day sites and museums. Then head to the magical island abbey of Mont-St-Michel. Further inland, sample some of Normandy’s world-renown produce: Camembert cheese, Calvados brandy, and apple cider.On your holiday in France stop off at champagne cellars in Reims and live it up in world-class cities like Strasbourg. One thing is for certain though, whether you’re viewing the grand palace at Versailles or stunning alpine vistas from the ski resort of Chamonix, France will bowl you over at every step.

My wife and I have been planning a trip through South America and our Travel Consultant, Lisa Fox, has provided nothing but exceptional service and support to create the perfect itinerary for this trip. Bags were nearly packed and we could picture the view from Machu Picchu, but plans have had to change due to travel safety and restrictions from the recent Coronavirus. While this could have been a very stressful time having to reschedule, rebook and who knows how much money could have been lost for what has already been paid for, Enchanting Travels has made it incredibly easy and stress free to reschedule the trip once this passes. We are very appreciative for the pre-trip support, and can already tell that the experience once we are actually on the road will be equally incredibly. Thanks for all your support!

“Great company, great people!
They helped us put together a complex schedule which included a number of experiences that we could not otherwise get. Also, in light of Covid-19, they were able to reschedule our upcoming Japan trip without additional fees, where many of my friends have scheduled similar trips (same timeframe) on their own, and all were refused a refund or reschedule without significant fees, despite having trip insurance.”

“We have used Enchanting Travels twice for trips. We couldn’t have been happier with the trips planned. Our first trip was a spectacular trip to southern India with driver for three weeks. This year’s trip was to Scotland. Unfortunately with the corona virus pandemic we chose to postpone this trip until 2021. Enchanting travels was very understanding of our concerns and quickly responded by moving our trip with all our desired sights to spring of 2021. Couldn’t ask for anything better from this stellar company with their caring staff.”

Enchanting Travels is a bespoke experience. From planning my trip, through to the trip itself, everything was thought about. We traveled at a particularly difficult time, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We were supported with everything, kept up to date with how the situation was developing and how this might affect us. Having WiFi in the car allowed us to communicate with our Trip Coordinator and check with our online government updates. Our stay was luckily not affected, but I felt so supported by the team. Our guides were ready waiting for us, could answer any questions about the sites we were visiting, they communicated with our chauffeur to ensure everything went smoothly. I could not recommend this company more highly. Excellent planning, experience, and execution. Our holiday was truly ENCHANTING!

“The best thing about Enchanting Travels is the people, from the trip planners to the guides to the drivers. Everyone has been friendly, courteous and professional. The activities and accommodations are planned to fit our wishes, but we still had the flexibility to add or change and activity at short notice.”

“I recently completed a 46-day adventure tour through India that was the best ever thanks to Enchanting Travels. The Enchanting Agent began by interviewing me for an hour and came back with the perfect routing and pacing. The on-the-ground support was second to none. Enchanting says that their trip coordinators are there ‘in case of emergency’ but that does not come near to describing the relationship. My trip coordinator was in constant communication with me to ensure that every leg of the trip went as planned. No detail was too small for her to look after. I was assigned the same driver for 27 days and he was the ‘Best Indian Driver Ever’ because he did more than drive. He curated experiences on the road on those ‘non-planned’ days that I will remember for a lifetime. The value for money was simply remarkable. I don’t think I’ll travel without the help of Enchanting Travels again.”
