An exciting country with many great regions to visit, France remains a popular choice with British travelers thanks to its close proximity and diverse attractions.

For those wondering where to set their sights when journeying to this European hotspot, we've compiled a list of the top five resorts you can’t afford to miss.

  1. Cargese (Corsica)
As the birthplace of Napoleon, any trip here is sure to keep holidaymakers entertained. This resort overlooks the sheltered cove of the Gulf of Sagone with stunning, sandy beaches for you to sink your feet into. Activities include a range of sports and swimming facilities as well as opportunities to get creative. This is a child-friendly resort, perfect for families, with children’s facilities operated by fully qualified professionals.

  2. Serre-Chevalier
If you want your French holiday to do something a little different then why not book a ski trip in the country’s famous section of the Alps? A particularly great resort is Serre-Chevalier, which sits at 1,400 metres and offers a multi-snow sports programme for added interest. There are group lessons for alpine skiing and snowboarding that cater to all ages and abilities, in addition to a range of other key features, including lounge and festival evenings, an indoor pool and child-friendly facilities. You can even take the official skiing and snowboarding diplomas here if you want your winter sporting prowess to be certified. Visit Serre-Chevalier with Club Med to discover it for yourself.

  3. Vittel Le Parc
Set in the stunning landscape of the Vosges Mountains, this resort combines natural beauty with modern luxury perfectly. The resort itself is nestled within 600 hectares of parkland and forest, while internal facilities offer spa experiences in luxurious surroundings. If you want a holiday that offers the thrilling experience of exploring the local landscape by horseback or the wonder of learning about the local wildlife, then Vittel Le Parc is certainly for you. It’s even the home of international show-jumping and horse racing events for those interested in watching rather than participating.

  4. Pompadour
Located towards the south of the country, resorts at Pompadour are another great option for equine lovers. The resort from Club Med is home to one of the biggest riding centres in Europe, but you’ll also find a warm and friendly welcome in this fantastic family-friendly spot. Set in the beautiful Correze countryside, this resort was once a large and elaborate manor house, meaning there is plenty for visitors to marvel at – especially when you consider it’s set in 60 hectares of gardens.

  5. Les DeuxAlpes
With France’s capital often considered the city of love, we thought it only prudent to include a top destination for couples that fancy a romantic break. Putting Paris to one side for a moment, this resort in the French Alps is our choice pick for couples and offers picturesque views as the area is dominated by the Meije Glacier. With one of the most famous snowparks in the world and a great range of culinary delights, it’s understandable why we picked Les Deux Alps as our top couples’ retreat.
