Holidays in France mean so much more than just The Eiffel Tower in Paris

France has tens of thousands of hotels and B&B's you can stay at, in fact there are more hotels in Paris than any other city in France, as this is such a popular destination for a short break, or romantic weekends away.

But for a break with a difference, how about staying in one of the many chateaux that has been converted into a prestigious hotel with the ultimate in luxury or perhaps you would prefer a travel inn near to one of the attractions like Disneyland Paris or Futurescope, also with absolutely thousands of camping sites all over France, where you can pitch your own tent, go touring with a caravan or motor home, but for more convenience you could even hire a chalet already on site.

You can find campsites throughout France with excellent facilities that include swimming pools, shops, clubs, bars, entertainment, playgrounds, etc and are ideal for a family holiday.  Some even offer other activities such as tennis, fishing, French boules, cycles for hire, and even games rooms with pool, snooker, etc, which can make for an ideal self-catering holiday at very little expense.

However, for those that are into adventure holidays, you will not be disappointed with the range of activities on offer in France, such as canoeing, paragliding, abseiling, kayaking and rafting, horse riding, hiking, etc.
