If you’re planning a holiday to France then you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting the perfect destination for you. Beautiful countryside, amazing cities and world class food to sample. Whether you’re chasing the sun in the South or want to sample the charming towns in the north, there’s a little something for everyone in France. So, north or south, where’s best to head?
Rocks, sea, D-day beaches and gorgeous scenery, the North of France is ideal for those who want to mix culture and sun seeking on their trip. There’s beautiful countryside, finer weather than in the UK and plenty of opportunity to tuck into a delicious fresh feast over a glass of Merlot. One of the main perks of Northern France is how easy it is it drive from one destination to another, so you can explore several areas at once. It’s a great ideal to stay in mobile holiday homes, like the ones available at Eurocamp as they make a great base for exploring with all them family and are more affordable than staying in expensive hotels everywhere.
Home to the Cote d’Azur and the French Riviera, the South of France is hotter and arguably more glamorous than its northern counterpart. It’s the perfect place to head if you’re looking to enjoy a less active type of holiday, think lazing on a yacht in St Tropez, sipping champagne on the promenade in Nice or getting dressed up for a glitzy dinner in Cannes. Less cultural than the north, the south of France is made for those who seek the sun and want to enjoy their holiday in style. Its perhaps more suited to couples than families, with accommodation expensive and little to do activity wise when compared to the opportunities to engage in more active pursuits in the north.
With the north and the south of France being so drastically different, it’s quite simple to work out which part of the country will be better for you and the type of holiday you’re looking to enjoy. Luxurious dinners, bottles of Moet and lounging in the sun or bike rides through the mountains, Nutella crepes and hiking home after a long day of exploring? France is all very beautiful, so whichever part you choose be it north or south you’re guaranteed to have a great time.
