Activity holidays in France

France is the world's most visited country, and its fantastic variety of food, scenery and landscapes make it an ideal activity destination.

We have chosen the Dordogne for our hotel to hotel activity holiday and canoeing holiday. With its reputation as one of the most picturesque regions in France, its river, picturesque walking trails and varied cycling terrain are ideal for a week's exploring with the family, on foot, by bike or in your own canoe.

Our villa holidays, based in Brittany and The Dordogne are one- centre flexible breaks for families and mixed groups. Base yourself in one of our hand-picked self-catering properties and explore to your hearts content, doing as much or as little as you chose. All walking and cycling routes and custom made bikes provided, as well as 24 hour support from our local experts.
