With warm sunshine flooding the hills, pastures, lakes and beaches of France, this is the perfect time for an Autumn getaway to enjoy the relaxing peace and quiet of late season destinations. And the bonus of great value accommodation in both countryside and cities!
Of course, Paris in the sunshine is hard to resist – but try other beautiful cities in France for a long weekend or mid-week break. Romance is in the air in Annecy in the Haute-Savoie, with clear air, lakeside strolls and mountain views, also in Carcassonne, where winding medeival lanes take you on a trip back in time.
Hop on a train to visit sunny Avignon, the city of the popes, Bordeaux for the wine harvest or Tours for the Loire chateaux. For history there is Chartres, while for glamour and beaches, Nice is hard to beat.
