Tailor Made France Holidays

Experience joie de vivre on an independent tour of France

Getting to France is quicker, easier and more convenient in the twenty-first century than it has ever been before. Journeying aboard the comfortable, high-speed Eurostar train, it's possible to cross the Channel and arrive in France from the UK in as little as thirty-five minutes.

After that, the entire country - and the rest of Mainland Europe, for that matter - is at your disposal. Choose the destinations you've always wanted to visit and allow one of our travel consultants to create your perfect rail holiday in France. Add premium hotels or make your rail journeys in First Class; at GRJ independent, we can help you build everything from a short break to a full and varied rail holiday.

The beauty of France is that it effortlessly caters for all tastes, and getting from place to place is easily achieved thanks to an extensive rail network which combines high-speed services with more leisurely classic train routes and extends the length and breadth of the country.

Whether your penchant is to sample the high life by visiting glamourous Nice and Cannes in the 'billionaire's playground' of the Côte d'Azur, or to pay your respects to the fallen heroes of two World Wars in an emotionally stirring pilgrimage to the battlefields of the Somme, France delivers one extraordinary experience after another.

A Holiday Tailored to your Needs

From the swish ski resorts of the French Alps to the glorious rolling vineyards of Bordeaux or the Loire Valley and on to the fashionable beaches of Perpignan and St. Tropez, France is a destination steeped in arts and culture, history, and some of Europe's most beautiful and inspiring landscapes.

Fittingly, France's beating heart is Paris - frequently cited as the world's most romantic city. Take an evening cruise along the Seine or a sunlit stroll along the Champs-Élysées, admire the view from the Eiffel Tower or the masterpieces on display in the Louvre gallery. Whatever you choose to do in Paris, the country's cultural and gastronomic epicentre promises to be an enduring highlight of your independent rail tour of Paris.
