Topographically there are three very different coastlines in France: the Med, the Atlantic and the Channel, four mountain ranges: the Alps, Pyrenees, Jura and Massif Central and even a volcano or two in the Auvergne. Beyond the historic cities are cascading villages built into precipitous cliffs, luminous coastal harbours and swathes of verdant forests, all of which can be enjoyed when on one of our luxury French holidays.
Luxury Villas in France
As intrinsic to France's identity as its history, culture, and chic women is its cuisine and can be one of the main reasons for choosing a French villa holiday - oysters of Cap Ferret, fois gras and walnuts from the Dordogne and Marseilles' bouillabaisse. It's hardly surprising that France was the first nation to have its gastronomy recognised by UNESCO as an 'intangible cultural heritage'. Experience the lavender fields, sunflowers and cicadas of the Luberon, undulating hillside vineyards of Bordeaux, yacht-filled ports on the Cote d'Azur and the cool beaches of Cap Ferret from our luxury villas in France.

The Best Time of Year to Visit France
