Holidays in France

Why got to France?

L'Art de Vivre is a French expression which translated means "the art of living". For the French, especially in southern France, the art of living means profiting from the riches that daily life has to offer. The beauty of the sunrise, a delicious meal, a delicate glass of wine, or an evening spent with friends.

Calling all Francophiles, along with those who love to discover more about French culture. From prehistoric caves to the standing stones of Carnac; from the finest art collections in the Louvre or Orsay museums, to parks and gardens that offer a moment of reverie; from the architectural masterpieces of the past abbeys, cathedrals and châteaux such as Chenonceau, Blois and Chantilly, to today's impressive monuments like the Arch at La Défense, or the Centre Georges Pompidou; from sites of intimate charm like the Clos-Lucé d'Amboise, where Leonardo da Vinci once lived, to the château of Auvers-sur-Oise where Impressionism blossomed, each tells its own story - its traditions, its residents, its character.

Weddings and Honeymoons in France

A wedding ceremony or a honeymoon in France will combine the traditional values of marriage and the most exciting celebration in romantic sceneries! A civil wedding in France requires legal procedures and advance planning, as well as a minimum stay of 4 weeks to complete the necessary documentation prior to the legal ceremony. Or you can have a legal wedding in your own country, and then choose either a religious ceremony or your honeymoon in France. From a royal chateau to a yacht wedding, France offers a great variety of memorable places and fabulous experience.
