Burgundy

The Burgundy region is a fascinating mix of unspoiled countryside, historical towns and monuments, many as a result of the illustrious and wealthy past of the region, while also being highly reputed (and visited!) for the exceptional Burgundy wines produced here

Burgundy (Bourgogne) is found in central-eastern France, south-east of Paris. It covers the region from Sens and Auxerre in the north, and south to Macon (just north of Lyon). Among the reasons that people visit the region are the attractive countryside, including the Morvan Regional Park, numerous historical towns and villages and Burgundy wine, held in high esteem the world over, with wines such as Chablis, Beaune and Nuits-Saint-Georges all from this part of France.


The Burgundy region was for several centuries independent of France (until 1477) and the region sided with the English against the French during the Hundred Years War. During that period it was a very rich state, and continues to be one of the more wealthy regions of France to this day. Indeed it is the legacies of this golden age of prosperity that still provide many of the major attractions in Burgundy.

Linked by TGV train from Paris, a full day excursion from Paris can be organized !


Alsace

Alsace is a lovely region to explore, with important cities such as Strasbourg and Colmar, the Alsace wine route, historical castles, and many pretty villages sitting quietly in the vineyards and forests of the region

Alsace has a very individual personality - neither French or German, but somewhere between the two. It is also known as one of the most friendly and welcoming regions of France.

Alsace is found in eastern France, on the border with Germany to the east and the Lorraine region of France to the west.  It is the smallest region in France and very pretty in its location between the Vosges mountains and the Rhine. The setting also means that it has a perfect, fertile environment for grape growing and wine production.Strasbourg is at only 2h20 from Paris by TGV Train !

Loire Valley

Many of the most famous chateaux (castles) in France are in the Loire Valley, and for many, that is reason enough to visit - but it is not the only reason! There is attractive countryside, interesting towns to explore, and the River Loire itself is beautiful and unspoiled (and a listed World Heritage Site) - all very good reasons to pass time exploring this popular region. The Loire Valley region is found in northern-central France. The official region name - Centre - is little known outside France (and little loved within), but it is better known as one of the most popular regions of France for visitors - the Loire Valley.

The big attraction of the Loire Valley is of course the large number of prestigious chateaux, and no visit would be complete without taking in a couple of the more important castles along the Loire - indeed, many visitors base their entire trip around their visits to the castles.

The TGV train takes us in the heart of the Loire Valley region from Paris within less than an hour, making a full-day excursion one of the favorites for incentive programs.


Champagne

It is not hard to guess why the Champagne region is famous or what attracts the visitors - Champagne is of course loved all over the world, and many people like to pay a pilgrimage to the source of the world's most celebrated party drink!

Enjoy a glass of bubbly as you spend a day in the famous region of Champagne on a day trip from Paris. With its magnificent vineyards, impressive heritage and world class Champagne, the region makes a great excursion from the French capital. Explore the Moet and Chandon cellars in Epernay. Also visit the Mumm Champagne House and Reims Cathedral.
Visit the sacred town of Reims, known for its role in consecrating the kings of France as well as its importance to the Champagne region’s sparkling wines.

The TGV train takes 45 minutes from Paris to Reims so a full day is absolutely necessary should you stay in Paris.


Brittany

Brittany has an exceptional coastline with many beaches, fishing villages and islands; a remarkable historical architecture to be seen in some of the towns; and some of the finest prehistoric landmarks in the world - just a few of the reasons why so many people visit Brittany year after year!

Brittany region is the largest peninsula of France. It is situated in the northwest of France, alongside the Atlantic Ocean and bounded to the east by the Pays de la Loire and Normandy regions.

 

 

Normandy

The great charm of Normandy lies in the beautiful countryside and the lovely local architecture, with many half-timbered buildings. The region oozes history, from the Mont St. Michel and the landing beaches of WWII which are the highlights of Normandy. The seaside resort of Deauville is also a luxury destination for meetings or incentive travel. Art is also present with Honfleur and Monet’s gardens in Giverny. From Paris, a long full-day coach tour is necessary to visit the highlights of this region.


Southwest France : Bordeaux & Basque country

Aquitaine lies in the Southwest of France, from the Dordogne in the north of the region, to Bordeaux on the Atlantic coast and down to the Basque country in the Pyrénées and the Spanish border. A turbulent history has left the region scattered with bastides, fortified hilltop towns and villages, ancient strongholds of Charlemagne, Richard the Lionheart and the Black Prince.


This is the land of truffles and armagnac brandy, sunflowers and foie-gras, vast uncrowded beaches, skiing in the Pyrenees and tucked away villages, of warmhearted, generous people and, wine. Bordeaux, the regional capital, lies on the left bank of the River Garonne, near the Atlantic coast; a lively university town with handsome 18th century buildings, good shopping and the centre of the Bordeaux wine trade.


The vineyards that produce some of the world's greatest wines, begin close to the town and stretch for many miles from Blaye and Bourg and the Médoc, Libourne and the heart of the Pomerol vineyards, St Emilion and Entre-Deux-Mers, to Sauternes, Barsac and Graves.

Other vineyards elsewhere include Duras, Bergerac, Buzet, Péchament and Monbazillac in particular, and the Madrian wines near the Pyrenees. Of course wine will be celebrated and a huge amount of activities, tours, tastings and gala dinners can be organized around it !


The Landes is a flat, forested area stretching along the coast from below the Bordeaux vineyards to Bayonne with huge beaches backed by high dunes. Inland are lakes and small villages with clusters of half timbered houses. Dax is a popular spa town about 45 minutes from Biarritz that has centres for a range of treatments, a small casino and smart shops. Villeneuve-de-Marsan is one of the main centres for armagnac and has two excellent Michelin restaurants. Bayonne is a quiet cathedral city with medieval streets and riverside boulevards. It lies on the far south coast where Gascony and the Pays-Basque meet. Beyond are fashionable Biarritz, St-Jean-de-Luz and the Spanish border.

  

Rhone Alpes

The Rhone-Alpes region features much of the greatest scenery in France, from the high Alps of the Savoy region to the lavendar fields of the Drome and the stunning Gorges de l'Ardeche. A great outdoors destination.

The Rhône-Alpes region of France is found in the south-east of France, where it borders Italy and Switzerland to the east and Provence to the south

. It is a wild and very beautiful part of France.

The main city of the region is Lyon which is an important destination for events and incentives too : Capital of the region, Lyon oozes atmosphere at every corner.  Enjoy 2000 years of UNESCO-listed heritage as well as stylish shops, fabulous restaurants, and urban illuminations.  But don’t forget the stunning countryside outside the city too.

The eastern part of the Rhone-Alpes region is 'high Alps' country', including the highest mountain in France, Mont Blanc (on the border with Italy) and many other high mountains and passes.

North-east of the mountains, the landscape is quite different, less dramatic but with its own distinctive appeal. Bordering Provence, the Drome region of the rhone-Alpes is best known for its lavender fields and quiet market towns.

The Ardeche, to the south-west of the Rhone-Alpes, has several highlights and places of great natural beauty, including the Gorges de l'Ardeche - amazingly beautiful, about 40km of deep gorge with the Ardeche at the bottom and best accessed from Vallon Pont d'Arc (not to be confused with Pont d'Arc itself, the stone arch at the entrance to the gorges).
