France is a country that loves its food, and choosing it as a holiday destination is a golden opportunity to sample some of the gastronomic delights the country has to offer. In addition to this, France boasts beautiful coastlines, cities steeped in culture and history, and world-class museums and shops. The best way to explore from any major city is with car hire in France.
You can begin your French holiday in the capital city, Paris, where it is easy to pick up your cheap car hire in France, and navigate the city. For a bird’s eye view of cosmopolitan Paris you can climb the Eiffel Tower and see the panorama of France’s greatest skyline. If you’re a gourmet then don’t hesitate to leap right in at one of the city’s wonderful restaurants: you’re guaranteed a taste sensation.
If the beach is more your scene then you can drive your car rental to the beautiful Cote d’Azur and enjoy both the gorgeous sands and the dynamic cities of Nice and Cannes, or visit the famous Pont d’Avignon. For some Hollywood glitter, catch Cannes during the film festival, when movie stars stroll the streets.
Wine-lovers will have really hit the jackpot when choosing to holiday in France as it one of the best wine-producers in the world. Take your hire car on a tour of the Loire or Dordogne regions and you will no doubt sample many of the French vineyard’s delights.
After all that activity you may be after some peace and solitude, and you can find it along the beautiful Normandy coast. The area is steeped in history as it played a key part in WWII, and many of the scars are still visible, or preserved to this day. Mont St Michel is also in this area if you fancy a bit of medieval history.
