France

Famous for its world-class wine, food, and scenery, France is only a short trip away but can create a lifetime of memories. An extremely gay-friendly country, it is home to some of the most influential writers, thinkers and painters as well as one of the most romantic cities in the world, France is best enjoyed with company to soak up all it has to offer – luckily, with our group trips, you never have to worry about who will feature in your iconic Eiffel Tower pictures. Try Burgundy for its famous wine or a cruise through Provence for a true taste of the French lifestyle.

General Information

When you think of France, romance, food and art springs to mind. Whether you head to Paris for a romantic city break or visit the South for long sunny days whilst surrounded by acres of vineyards, or a snowy ski holiday in the Alps, France pretty much has it all. The capital city is a must visit and with it being only a 2 and a half Eurostar train ride away from London. Of course, you must visit the Eiffel Tower, the Arc De Triomphe, the Notre Dame and the Louvre, but Paris has so much more to offer. The fantastic cuisine, the art galleries, the shopping and the laid-back French lifestyle is wonderful to experience.

You’ll find many of the world’s greatest artistic treasures in Paris. You can also explore regions such as Normandy in the north with its charming Medieval capital, Rouen. In the south you can enjoy the warm weather and high life of the French Riviera. France is the most visited country on earth for a reason.

France became a byword for elegance and sophistication during the Early Modern period. Most European countries used French as the lingua franca. Madame de Pomp­adour said, “My pleasure is not to think about the gold in my coffers but to spend it.” Marie Antoinette took her advice to heart. Napoleon may have met his Waterloo but France’s dominant role in fashion and the arts remains. This is the land of haute couture, after all. Let them eat cake… but maybe steak tartare and a bottle of Burgundy first.

Gay people in France live quite openly. It’s a country that’s fundamentally conservative but with a strong libertarian, even libertine tendency. Homosexual activity has raged far more visibly in French history than in many other countries. This is a country where presidents can conduct open affairs and still stay in office. Sexual adventurism is considered to be the norm in much of France.

What Everyone Does In France

Since it is so easy to get to Paris is a great city break. Catch the Eurostar from Kings Cross St Pancras to Paris (which takes on two and a half hours) and you’re there! Spend three to four days visiting the main sites and enjoy the French art de Vivre (art of living).

What Some People Do In France

Skiing is a great holiday for the family, friends or even by yourself. The French Alps is one of the best places to ski, and the large number of resorts means skiing is available to everyone no matter what ability you are. The fresh mountain air, the slope side restaurants and most importantly the French apres will make your holiday fantastic (along with the skiing!).

What No One Else Does In France

Quite often overshadowed by other sunny destinations, but the south of France is actually a wonderful summer holiday spot. The French Riviera is particularly beautiful. Why not venture on a little road trip and visit idyllic Aix-en-Provence, buzzing Marseille and gorgeous Saint Tropez.
