Voyages Jules Verne

Enjoy France

Against a backdrop of varied and beautiful landscapes, the reasons for embarking on a tour of France are manifold. With its exquisite cuisine and coveted vineyards, sleepy villages and chic cities, and ancient houses and modern museums, France is sure to satisfy mind, body and soul.

You’ll witness the French joie de vivre whatever path you take through the country. You could choose to roam the romantic rural landscapes, explore undulating woods, orchards and pastures or absorb the culture of the capital: fashionable Paris.

Alternatively, if you’re an architecture enthusiast, you might want to appreciate the 18th-century buildings and quintessentially French squares complete with fountains and classical façades that can be found the length and breadth of France.

Good food and drink is deliciously unavoidable in France. And where better to sample some of the best dishes in the world than Lyon – the second city and the country’s undisputed gastronomic capital.

The waterways of France combine beautiful countryside with historic towns and villages. As you glide along peaceful waters, you’ll gain a fresh understanding on why Cézanne and Van Gogh were inspired by Provence, or what drew great French painters such as Monet, Manet, Cézanne, Gauguin and Renoir to the River Seine. Let the landscape of monasteries, abbeys, villages and chateaux be your muse and help you paint your own magical memories.
