How is it possible to talk about France without mentioning Paris and its surroundings? This region promises you an unforgettable holiday placed under the banner of Art, History and Culture.
Ile-de-France is one of the main tourist destinations in the world, and rightly so. Currently made up of eight départements: Essonne, Hauts-de-Seine, Seine-Saint-Denis, Seine-et-Marne, Val-de-Marne, Val d’Oise, Yvelines and the agglomeration of Paris, the region offers an unrivalled cultural and historical heritage.
Ideally stay at least a week, but it is also quite possible to enjoy the Paris region’s many treasures during a short break. In all cases, spend a while in the Louvre museum; escape to the château and forest of Fontainebleau; visit the Basilica of the Sacré-Cœur and Notre Dame cathedral; spend the day at the Château de Versailles and in its gardens ; give yourself a few hours of shopping on the Champs-Elysées, the most beautiful avenue in the world; stroll around Saint-Germain-en-Laye and the banks of the Seine, and of course, climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower, our famous Iron Lady.
In addition to this striking cultural and historical heritage, Paris and its region offer many opportunities for hiking, cycling and horse riding in its thousands of acres of parks and forests.
If the Île-de-France is so popular with visitors, it is for all these things at the same time, and much more besides! So do not wait any longer but come and discover every corner of the region. Paris is only 200 kilometres from the ferry port of Dieppe, and so easily accessible from the UK!
