Whilst France is host to a similar population to the UK, it boasts a land approximately twice the size. In central France many British summer visitors head for the Loire or the Dordogne regions but if you travel further south, our favourite destination is the breathtaking Alpine region, home to the highest mountain in our summer programme, Mont Blanc, which towers above Chamonix. Walking holidays in France don’t get any more spectacular; Alps walking holidays offer a fabulous range of hiking from high mountain scrambles to gentle lakeside ambles. But a summer holiday in the French Alps resorts can offer you much more, with fine cuisine, markets, waterfalls, gardens, castles, and every kind of outdoor sports, all with the most spectacular backdrop in Europe.
