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.
We just wanted to let you know how very much we enjoyed our trip to Venice, which was organised by your company. Everything from my initial phone enquiry to the arrival of our itinerary and tickets, was executed with complete professionalism and efficiency, as well as a personal touch – an excellent combination! I really appreciated the detailed information you sent, which made the experience of travelling stress free and smooth.
Our hotels were ideal, both the overnight stays and the 5 nights in Venice.
Staff at the hotel in Venice were unfailingly helpful and gracious, and our room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The hotel’s location suited us perfectly: we felt as though we were given a glimpse of something authentically Venetian. We would have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending Planet Rail
