One of the main criteria in choosing a holiday destination in France is what you like to eat. The gastronomy of France is famous throughout the world. And each region offers a diverse and unique range of food and drinks. Butter and cream in the north, olive oil in the south. White wines of the Loire Valley, the red wines from the banks of the Rhone. Discover here some of our self-indulgent features of all things gastronomic that you will experience wherever you choose to holiday in France.
