Discover our hotels in France
France's main cities are excellent destinations for a city break or business trip that includes cultural visits, shopping and culinary experiences, starting with the Paris region – the Île-de-France. Discover the most wonderful monuments of Paris and Versailles from a city-centre base. Book a hotel near the Stade de France to watch a match or a memorable concert. Or opt for an affordable hotel in Roissy-en-France to be as close as possible to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. With its spa hotels, the Île-de-France is also a wellness destination.
Each of France's provincial cities vibrantly affirms its unique identity too. So explore their iconic sites, from Bordeaux's Miroir d'eau – the world's largest reflecting pool – to Toulouse's pink bricks, from Strasbourg's timbered houses to Lyon's traboule passageways.
Sea and mountains
France's stunning gems of nature lie close to its cities. Both Normandy's beautiful upper and lower areas are only around two hours from Paris – breathe the Channel's fresh sea air in Trouville, Deauville or beside Mont-Saint-Michel. And we also offer hotels in the old Norman cities of Rouen and Caen, two destinations that are rich in cultural heritage and just a short distance from Normandy's breathtaking cliffs. Or why not escape to unspoilt Brittany via rail links with the historical cities of Rennes and Saint-Malo?
Toulouse stands at the foot of the majestic Pyrenees. And from Lyon – the former capital of Roman Gaul – several ski resorts in the towering Alps can be reached by car in under two hours. You can ski during the day then go back to sleep in Lyon in the evening. Or if you stay in a hotel in Chamonix or Annecy you'll be sure to make the most of the spectacular Alpine scenery.
Our hotels in Nice are among the best in the city and, just like our properties in Cannes and Marseille, they combine the charm of a large historical city with the dreamlike pleasure of southern France's sun-kissed beaches.
Culture and countryside
Many small French cites feature marvellous heritage. And some of the country's most famous sites are in the middle of the countryside. From Arles and Nîmes, worth visiting for their Roman ruins, you can easily reach the Camargue nature reserve and the Pont du Gard Roman aqueduct. And if you stay in Niort, you can quickly get to the Poitevin marshland, another beautiful reserve. The enchanting city of Aix-en-Provence, which includes wonderful fountains and townhouses, is surrounded by vineyards, hills and endless fields of lavender. Colmar and Tours, where our hotels also await you, are both renowned for their quaint half-timbered houses – the former is the perfect stopover on a discovery tour of Alsace's wines, the latter an ideal base for visiting the splendid Loire Valley chateaux.
