Ancient castles, fairy-tale gardens, exciting theme parks, historic sites, buzzing cities and delicious food – France has all the ingredients you need for an unforgettable family holiday.
Paris is a must and there are so many wonderful museums, galleries and attractions to appeal to the whole family. Our local guides will bring the city and its history to life and, of course, there are plenty of pâtisseries to keep energy levels up as you discover the capital’s charming neighbourhoods.
On the coast, Normandy offers a fascinating look into the past for history enthusiasts of all ages. Explore the island monastery of Mont-Saint-Michel, and learn all about World War II with visits to the D-Day landing beaches.
In Provence you can marvel at the beautiful blues and purples of the lavender fields in full bloom and discover medieval architecture and Roman ruins at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Avignon. There are some charming hotels in this region that are perfect for some quality time together as a family.
For some fun in the sun, make a beeline for the beaches in the beautiful French Riviera. There are many rustic villages to explore along the coast and plenty of great food and wine. Speaking of which, the wine lovers in your family will definitely want to spend some time in Champagne and Bordeaux, sampling some of the best vintages the regions have to offer. You also have the chance to venture even further back in time with a visit to the Lascaux caves near the village of Montignac, where you will find Palaeolithic cave paintings that are estimated to be about 20,000 years old.
Go cycling through the ‘Garden of France’, the Loire Valley, stopping to explore old castles and breathe in the scents of beautiful lush gardens. Or get a bird’s eye view from a hot air balloon. Wherever you find yourself, make sure you spend some time browsing a market or two, and tasting the fresh produce each region is famous for.
Whether your family loves the outdoors, adventure, discovering new flavours or uncovering history, our Travel Designers are ready to help put together a memorable trip through France for all of you.
Our Top France Example Trips
Recently returned from France and have nothing but praise for Hanna at Jacada for organizing an amazing trip. Seeing the D-Day sites in Normandy had been on my travel bucket list for years. With Hanna's help, I was able to accomplish that. She organized an excellent private guide who made the sites come alive. The itinerary was personally tailored to my deep interest level. Hanna also arranged a fantastic guide to show me the World War I battlefields in Verdun and the Meuse-Argonne. This too was personally tailored to my interests. I was able to use Paris as a hub for both Normandy and Verdun. The accommodations in all three locations were amazing and the private transfers and first class train tickets made the whole journey seamless. I can't say enough about Hanna and her team. I've been a long time Jacada customer and happily suggest them to anyone who desires a first rate travel experience.
We had a great trip to France planned through Jacada. Everyone we worked with at Jacada was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and personable. We plan on using Jacada again for any luxury trip we take. We highly recommend their services.
First experience with Jacada, and they did an incredible job. I already have our next trip lined up. amazing job!! It was such a special experience.
Extremely customized trip with private guides and private transfers. Every planning detail taken care of for you. Wonderful suggestions given to you during the brainstorming part of the planning. I use Jacada for my trips to The Galapagos Islands and to France. Both were trips of a lifetime.
Need to Know
When to go
France is one of Europe's most popular destinations, and spring, summer and autumn are the best times to visit. You'll find some restaurants close during August so it's best to avoid this month if you're after a foodie -themed trip. There are some lovely markets around Christmas time and plenty of galleries and museums to explore if you're visiting during the cooler months.
