Best Family Vacations in France

You're planning a family vacation and everyone in your family has different interests and preferences right? Maybe you have a history buff, a wine enthusiast, a foodie or art lover, an adventure seeker or sun worshipper? The good news is that France offers something for each and every one of you.

To make the most of your family vacation, it's can be wise to focus on one specific region at a time. Fortunately, we've got you covered on that front! Let's embark on a journey through some of our favorite regions, each with its own unique charm and attractions: Brittany & Normandy, Champagne & Alsace, and the breathtaking route from Provence to the French Riviera.

Brittany & Normandy

Brown, stone castle

We’ve all heard of Brittany and Normandy in our high-school history classes. While these locations are certainly well-known for their World War II landmarks, they’re also home to charming villages, bountiful orchards and stunning scenery. Bike the Emerald Coast as you make your way through Northern Brittany. Explore the iconic UNESCO World Heritage site, Mont-Saint-Michel, and take some time to experience Omaha Beach, one of five Operation Overlord landing sites in World War II.

On our Brittany & Normandy Biking Tour, you can spend your nights relaxing in an 18th-century castle as well as a stunning 18th-century chateau, enjoying French wine and decadent French cuisine.

Champagne & Alsace

Backroads Guest Biking Through Tree Path

If the adults in your family enjoy keeping their glasses half-full, our Champagne & Alsace biking tours might be perfect for you! Our trips feature incredible cycling, but how does it sound to go on a ride and have a glass of Dom Pérignon waiting for you when you finish? What about taking an afternoon to sip Champagne in Champagne? We give you the freedom to do just that.

Our Champagne & Alsace Family Bike Tours are truly the definition of luxury cycling, with ample bike paths to lead you around the region. Of course it’s not all about wine - make sure to check out Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg, a 12th-century fortress that sits over the Rhine River Valley, as well as Gothic churches and medieval fortifications that make this region so historically and culturally significant.

Provence to the French Riviera

Starting and ending in Nice, France, we can guarantee you that you and your family will have more than a nice time on our Provence to French Riviera Multi-Adventure Tour.

This trip has a little bit of everything - hike through sand and sunshine on the Azure Coast, cycle off-the-beaten-path in the French alps, enjoy world-class fine art and relax at quaint beaches with turquoise water. If all of that is not enough, you’ll also get the opportunity to enjoy exquisite French cuisine and wine, explore villages and lounge at a luxurious beachside hotel.
