Regarding diversity, France is difficult to beat: the south is very different from the north, each city has its distinct character, and the beaches are, well, simply too fantastic to miss!
Summertime in France is a particularly magical time to travel because you can spend long, leisurely evenings swigging and dining with friends, take advantage of some of the sunniest days of the year to explore the beaches and ruins, and, of course, get to see the prettiest seaside villages at their most charming locations.
Here is a list of the top five destinations in France to visit in the summer.
Dune of Pilat for a heavenly sight
You can only tell this location is in Europe once you see it! Imagine a mile-long, gigantic white dune bordered by a verdant forest and the sea on one side. You should put the Pilat Dune in southwest France on your bucket list; this will be your vision of heaven!
It is the highest dune in Europe and is in a stunningly serene location. It’s a short drive from Bordeaux and a hop, skip, and bounce along the coast from incredible surf locations like Hossegor and Biarritz, making it a tremendous day trip location to spend your summer holidays.
Seaside Villages in Brittany
Brittany is a stunning coastal region with a long nautical culture, as seen by its historical port cities like the fortified Saint-Malo and Concarneau, which were fortified in the 14th century.
Within the isolated pristine beaches, you can find centres of old fishing communities on small, wind-swept offshore islands and peaceful harbours.
The scenery is stunning and unspoiled, giving it the ideal place to relax and unwind. There are uninhabited, virgin beaches and a mountainous shoreline where fierce Atlantic waves pound against the shore!
The local cuisine offers delicious regional delicacies, including succulent buckwheat crepes and luscious seafood.
Pastry created with croissant dough and sprinkled with sugar is another well-known regional treat from Brittany. It has a rich cake-like interior and a crunchy caramelised exterior. Try this delicious dish to witness Brittany’s most famous and elite dish!
BELLE-ILE-EN-MER for a perfect day trip
The largest island in Brittany and one of France’s most stunning islands, Belle-ile-en-Mer, is an absolute haven in the summer. On the island, there are 60 breathtaking beaches where you can unwind! Beach lovers will find it heaven! You can also ride your cycle for entertainment along the designated bike routes or take to the island’s coastline walk. This island is kid and family-friendly!
Explore the city’s extensive past at the Musee d’Archeologie, which displays coins, pottery, mosaics, and historical artefacts. You can also stroll through the Old Town or go on a sunset hiking trip along Sentier de Tire-Poil past Mediterranean greenery and azure waters, stopping for dinner at a cliffside restaurant on the way back, making it a perfect summer holiday day trip!
Gorgeous beachfront and vibrant nightlife can be found in Juan-les-Pins, nearby, and Antibes. In the summer, indoor and outdoor clubs are up until early morning. Make sure to add Belle-ile-en-mer to your do list on a summer holiday!
Provence to soothe your mind
Spend your summer holidays in Provence, and you will undoubtedly return relaxed! Lavender fields, olive groves, delectable cuisine, and quiet, small-town life are all features of this region. With relics of Roman, Byzantine, Mediaeval, and Renaissance structures mixed into the contemporary development of the towns, it is also a genuine treasure trove of architecture.
Many travels to Aix-en-Provence or St. Tropez, the former more of a short holiday than the latter, which is famed for its beaches! St Tropez is better if you’re looking for sun, sea, and clear waters. Finally, Aix-en-thermal spas in Provence, which are very famous among international travellers, are a good choice if you need a relaxing and calming experience!
Bordeaux all in one spot
Grandiose castles rule over gently undulating hills covered in vines in the Bordeaux region, a lovely picturesque area of France! Picturesque walkways crisscross the region alongside the Garonne River and its tranquil canals. Many visitors favour doing leisurely bicycle tours of this region.
You may find two outstanding UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the area: Saint-Emilion, a small country village 51 kilometres outside of Bordeaux, and the magnificent city of Bordeaux, which have more than 350 structures that are designated as historical monuments! Sounds amazing? It looks even more amazing!
Bordeaux is an all-in-one location with a reputation and fantastic cuisine! Consider vegan food trucks, excellent coffee shops, and traditional markets selling the best in regional produce.
There are beautiful riverbank walks and cute antique boutiques, all waiting to be discovered if you can find some free time between drinking and eating!
With a rich tradition, delectable regional food, cities, and picturesque landscapes that are breathtaking everywhere you go, France is a nation of great contrasts!
