From the glamour of Cannes, Nice and the Côte d’Azur alongside the sparkling Mediterranean to the rustic charm and rugged beauty of the Brittany coast, from sophisticated Biarritz set beneath the stunning Pyrenees to the history, culture and romance of Paris – la belle France has something special to offer every visitor.
Whether you are tempted by the fabulous French cuisine, the world-famous wines, the beautiful châteaux or the cultural splendour of France’s cities and towns you will be seduced by this country of rich variety and contrasts.
Imagine yourself sipping a Pastis in a shady provençal café in a hilltop village as you watch the locals playing pétanques (boules), stretched out on a sandy beach as the Atlantic rolls in or strolling through a colourful marketplace surrounded by the aroma of lavender and fresh flowers.
France has pioneered high-speed rail travel with the TGV (train à grande vitesse) now an established part of everyday life. It is so easy to get around France and view the ever-changing scenery from the comfort and style of a train.
Thanks to the distinctive nature of every region you can experience dramatically different landscapes, architecture, dialects, culture and food as you journey through this magnificent country.
When I win the lottery Guy and the team will be my personal travel guides. I’m probably not their typical clientele , however, they delivered on budget , a dream rail journey and accommodation which exceeded expectations. We travelled from UK to Verona, Florence and up to Turin with quality and information. We had a difficulty in the journey due to train lines being down and bussed for a bit. A supportive phone call was reassuring and they liaised with the rail network , making it all fine. Wonderful service from a knowledgeable team. A wonderful holiday and great experience. Thank you for all your efforts. Well done Planet Rail. They took the strain and made a dream vacation possible.
