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 thought the Italian trains from Milan were superbly comfortable and were also very impressed by the station at Milan. We had a very warm and friendly welcome at the hotel. The room was lovely, beautiful marble bathroom, and a wide choice at breakfast. It was very central and after a long day’s sightseeing we twice used the spa facilities of steam room and pool to ease aching feet and backs. An excellent choice.
The hotel at Montreux was a delight – and only 20 yards across the road from the station! I’m glad we’d upgraded to a lake view room because we had a large balcony, the weather was sunny and warm and the views fabulous. We ate at the hotel restaurant and had the most wonderful meal.
All in all we had a lovely time and hope to use your services again.
