Mercantour family walking holiday, France
From
€545
excluding flights
Awesome, it has raised the bar for next year! (more)Tony Johnson
The whole thing was memorable! Our 6 year old and 4 year old leading "Leonidas" our donkey through the French Alps, sleeping in a beautiful yurt in an Alpine meadow, and feeling like we'd done something completely different to the typical "bucket and spade" type of holiday. (more)Alison Godfrey
The mountains, flora and fauna in an exceptionally beautiful and unspoilt part of the world, within and on the periphery of the Mercantour National Park in the French maritime Alps were most memorable. (more)Nick Lampert
Provence cycling tour, France
From
€1,085
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Cycling up Mont Ventoux. Wow! Its tough, very tough, but worth the effort. Particularly nice to have a really fabulous hotel at the bottom to relax afterwards. Tips? Do try to make the initial meeting with the local rep. We didn't and there were a few issues - for example some of our dinner arrangements - that it would have been better to iron out before they became issues. We were a bit disappointed that we weren't warned in advance that the meeting with the local... (more)Jane Frank

Burgundy self guided cycling tours, France
From
€890
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Cycling at our own pace through stunning, varied countryside and finding places that we would have missed in a car. Tips? Be prepared for more than just undulating vineyards - there are some hills and you should have a decent level of fitness. (However, we managed and are in our more senior years!) The hire bikes were excellent, sturdy machines and there was technical back-up if required. (Luckily not needed! ) Local benefits? Staying at comfortable,... (more)Neil Crawley
Provence self guided cycling tours, Avignon to Camargue
From
€830
excluding flights
Very well organised and very enjoyable.... The scenery was beautiful, except in the Camargue, and all the villages were very French and full of atmosphere. Cycling through the Montagnettes and Alpilles was lovely. (more)Trish Price
Successfully navigating our way in and out of beautiful little towns being enthusiastically helped with directions and suggestions for great things to see and do by locals even with our absolute lack of French. (more)Jennifer Wright

Geneva to Lyon self guided cycling holiday, France

Memorable parts? Probably the most memorable part was riding into St Emelion. The town is magnificent. Tips? This is a fabulous sightseeing trip go enjoy. Suitable for all levels of cyclists. Local benefits? Probably all three. Overall rating? Great, energetic, peaceful,l wonderful scenery. We covered a lot of miles but bikes were easy to ride. Hotels we stayed in were very good,comfortable and generally good food. Highly recommend this holiday. (more)marieanna howard
Provence self guided cycling tour, Avignon to Cassis
From
€915
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The scenery and the food. Tips? You do need to be semi fit! Local benefits? Local shops and cafes would have benefitted in the smaller, out of the way villages Overall rating? 4.5 stars. Only negative aspect was the hotel on the first and final night in Avignon, The Ibis, where the rooms were tiny, like being in a cabin and did make us worry about what was to follow! However, the other hotels were all fabulous but then we had to return to the Ibis... (more)Anne Morrice
Mercantour walking holiday in France
From
€545
excluding flights
Memorable parts? A truly special experience in a little corner of the Mercantour where time seems to have stood still. We went with the flow of life at the pace of an ambling donkey. Every detail of the trip was well thought out, and the route guidance booklet (which we carried with us all the time) was spot on. The range of different landscapes we walked through surprised and delighted us. The effectiveness of the route marking was also great. The holiday providers team was hugely... (more)Carolyne Mason
French Riviera holiday, with morning yoga
From
€805
excluding flights
Memorable parts? For me, staying at the hotel has re-written the rule book on the group activity holiday - something I have avoided up until now, as I have never wanted to spend 24/7 with a random group of people or be tied to a strict, laminated schedule. Everything about the week I spent in Saint-Jeannet surpassed my expectations. The accommodation was cosy and comfortable (and if you book a balcony room, I challenge anyone to find a better view!), the excursions were flexible, interesting... (more)Ali James
Family walking holidays with a donkey, France
From
€395
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Spending a full week in nature with animals, no car, no smart phones, spending real quality time with each other and meeting people. Tips? If you want a real break and appreciate nature and animals then this is perfect. Local benefits? Yes, without a doubt. Overall rating? I can't rate this holiday highly enough. It is one of the best we have had in many years. (more)Lorna Mackie
France self guided challenging cycling holiday
From
£867
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The most memorable part was Carolynn and Peter's warm hospitality involving lovely food, generous amounts of good wine and cognac and lively conversation around the dinner table. Domino the dog made everyone feel loved. The road cycling is excellent due to the almost deserted roads and hilly terrain. The routes provided are easy to follow, varied and provide a good workout over the week. Tips? Be prepared to put on weight as the food and wine is abundant and hard... (more)Carol Gray
Birdwatching holiday in France
From
£867
excluding flights
Both my husband and myself loved our week. Lazing by and in the pool late afternoon was lovely and the weather was hot. Being able to walk littlle or miles or not at all, was good -there is no compulsion to be super active, though you can! If you want to be totally catered for and live in verdant peace for a week, but have company too-this is the place for you! (more)Clare McKee
Excellent. It was not a thrills and spills holiday, just a quiet retreat where you are looked after. And if that is what you need, this is a place for you. (more)Tina cook
Dordogne cycling tour, France
From
€830
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Sarlat - we just loved wandering around the medieval part of town. Tips? Pack as light as possible, but for all temps (the caves were quite cold). If you want to visit lots of attractions, you'd need to be a very strong rider to have enough time to do this. Local benefits? Absolutely. Overall rating? Almost perfect...4 1/2 stars. Just a couple of comments if you want to make this a 5 star holiday: A map of Rocamadour showing where our hotel was (as... (more)Deborah Palacios
Vegetarian holidays in France

The very friendly and helpful hosts were the most memorable part of the holiday...Both hiking and cycling were enjoyable activities. (more)Helga Hoffmann-Orton
The hospitality of our hosts was most memorable...Look forward to a great holiday in beautiful, secluded locations. (more)Hilary Wight
A wonderfully calming and tranquil holiday rather than an "exciting" one. Should also mention the great hospitality shown by our hosts, delicious home cooked food and generous introductions to local wines and brandies! A lovely relaxing time. (more)Mark McKenzie
Horse riding holiday in France
From
£867
excluding flights
A fantastic place which lived up to my expectations. (more)Katherine Amos
Excellent. This is a fine place to stay! With lovely people and surroundings. The best parts were riding in unknown rural France with horses up country tracks and beneath trees in occasional woodland. Meeting other riders and brushing up my French whilst the instructor brushed up my riding skills! (more)Liz Beaven
Tips for other travellers? Stay an extra week!...Ten out of ten. (more)Sue Evans
