Spread out over 260,000 square miles, France is truly a huge country, especially when you consider the size of the UK, and one of the easiest ways to get around France is to hire a car. With 96 counties spread out over 26 regions France is well spread out, and has just about everything you could want from a country. With the beautiful beaches on the west coast receiving good sized waves from the Bay of Biscay, and the quieter beaches on the south coast often basked in sunshine those who enjoy their beach holidays are well catered for.
To the south east of the country are the French Alps, a huge mountain range with skiing and winter sports throughout the winter and a beautiful summer location as well, France is blessed. In between there are more UNESCO world heritage sites than in any other country in Europe and the capital city Paris, which has more must see tourist attractions than just about any other city in the world.
Whilst the north of the country experiences a similar climate to the one we see in the south of the UK, the south of the country enjoys a more Mediterranean climate, and experiences glorious long hot summers. With many Britons choosing to have a holiday home in the country, the country is one of the first choices of British holiday makers.
As well as being a great place to visit, the food and wine in France is up there with the best in the world, and the wine regions in the centre of the country produce some of the finest tipples, and most expensive bottles of wine anywhere on the planet.
With a huge number of war memorials, museums, war graves and preserved battle grounds war enthusiasts will learn lot’s in France about the two world wars, as well as battles throughout the history of the country.
Whether you are visiting the country to watch some of the world class surfing competitions on the west coast, visiting the Alps for skiing, the north coast to visit the beaches fought over on D-Day, going on a vineyard tour of some of the most beautiful chateau in the world or spending time in the capital city of Paris you’ll not be disappointed by what France has to offer.
With a great road network linking the whole country up, hiring a car makes getting around really easy, and whether you stick to the paid for motorways which offer quick access from one end of the country to the other, or you decide to venture of the beaten track you’ll find everything you hoped for and more by exploring France by car.
