'Tour de France'
For an unforgettable French holiday, we strongly
recommend you include in your burgeoning itinerary a visit
to at least one of these beautiful and distinctive regions.
Or, if time permits, create your own "Tour de
France" by travelling from one region to the next, dallying and
discovering the delights each has to offer.
Furthermore, by actually having your own home base
for your wanderings (avoiding "hotel hops"), you will
discover the joy of living in a real French village.
But not just any village - no matter how
It must be just the right village with just the
right type of accommodation and thoroughly French: a "five star" village.
This special quality cannot be judged on the internet; you need to have
stayed there to know.
By choosing thoughtfully you'll get a glimpse of heaven!
But how do you make this choice?
Find out the secret.
By spending a few minutes reading our web brochure,
we will show you just how.
So don't wait! Read all about it now...
