    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
    French Riviera holiday accommodation
    From
    €75
    per double room per night
    The views from the rooms are breath taking. The owners go the extra mile to ensure that your stay is as perfect as possible...A unique and restful experience which we hope to be able repeat one day. After only five nights we came home feeling recharged and with many fond memories. (more)Nick Medhurst
    Best holiday ever... The tour of the old city of Nice and the trip to the village of Tourettes the St Jeannet winery and the cooking class with Corrine were truly memorable. (more)Vicki Wright
    We stayed at the house for 4 nights with our teenage boys and we were so happy we did. Corinne and Benoit make you feel welcome as soon as you arrive...It was one of the highlights of our 3 weeks in France! Benoit does great excursions so highly recommend you go on his tours too!

    From
    £420
    per accommodation per week
    It is the best holiday we’ve had in France and that's from a perspective of over 40 years holidaying in France...The walking in the beautiful mountains in the Mercantour with snow,sun,isolation and good companions.Why did I reach 67 before finding this most beautiful place? (more)Tony Bell
    The Alpes-Maritimes and Mercantour National Park is a fantastic area to visit and we would consider this to be one of our best holidays. (more)Lourdes Roffey
    We loved the autumn walking in the Parc du Mercantour, in fact our walk to the Lac de Negre was probably the prettiest walk we have ever done. (more)Mary Dracup
    Mercantour Park self catering gite, France
    From
    £420
    per week (sleeps 2)
    Best bits: Walking up to and visiting the rock art in the Vallee des Merveilles, and the Fete du Pain in St Martin Vιsubie. (more)Carolyne Mason
    Excellent. We travelled with young family and would certainly stay again so cannot recommend it too highly. (more)ROSIE KELBRICK
    A really worthwhile and memorable holiday: the self guided walks were well planned and gave us a great idea of the locality; the food was very good and the garden(s) excellent for relaxing on our days off. We were given a very warm welcome and a friendly stay. (more)Jon Nay
    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

    From
    £759

    Memorable parts? Surviving the descent of the rapids at the Pont D'Arc without capsizing! Tips? Leave yourself in Phil's capable hands - go 1/2 board because the hotel's fantastic and take his kit list as your Bible. Local benefits? Tourist industry is important locally and local hotel benefitted. Overall rating? 10/10, A*, fantastic (more)Adele Holt
