Six Ways to Explore France


France is a country which has something to offer for all.  Great beaches, vibrant cities, world famous attractions and delicious traditional food. With France being so accessible from the UK it’s not surprising that it’s a popular choice of holiday destination for British tourists.

Today I am sharing six different takes on travel in France from UK travel bloggers. I hope they’ll inspire you on your next trip!

Motor Home Road Trip Adventure

I’ve just returned from a fortnight touring around Brittany in a motorhome with my young sons and parents.  We started our adventure with 48 Hours in Nantes enjoying some of the best attractions in the historical river side city.  We then headed along the stunning Brittany coastline as far up as Bénodet on the Finistere coastline.  Our highlights were full day boat trips to the Glenan Islands and Houat Island both of which I can thoroughly recommend.
