Tailor Your Holiday
Each Belle France holidays can be specially tailored to suit your requirements. Our established relationships with hoteliers, local bike shops and taxi drivers mean that all your needs before and during your trip can be met. We are happy to:
- tailor your itinerary to add extra nights
- modify part of your route
- arrange extra excursions such as wine tastings
- add a night or two in Paris to your trip
- upgrade your accommodation on selected holidays
One of our team members has been on every holiday we offer, so you can be sure your notes and map are accurate and detailed. Not only will your notes keep you on track, they will also mention great picnic spots, cafés, places of interest or landmarks where applicable. If you’re cycling, we’ll ensure your bikes are ready and waiting for you on arrival, having been matched carefully to your height.
We carry your bags
Booking with Belle France means you can take each day of your holiday at your own pace. Our prices include the transfer of your baggage between hotels, so all you need to take with you each day are the essentials.
Increasingly, our walking customers enquire about the possibility of bringing their dog with them. Many of our hotels are happy to accommodate small, well-behaved dogs and some of our holidays lend themselves particularly well to the addition of a canine companion. Call our team on +44 (0)1580 214 010 for more details on which locations are great for dogs.
Your tailored travel pack
Once your holiday is booked, we send out an information pack with everything you’ll need to know, from practical advice on passports and currency to hints for when you’re exploring the countryside. Find out more in our 'what happens next' section.
Three weeks before your departure, you’ll receive your unique, detailed travel pack, which contains your tickets, luggage tags and instructions on how to reach your first hotel, whether you’re travelling by car or train. It also contains your maps and notes.
Our holidays are mostly enjoyed by those looking to travel independently and go at their own leisurely pace, however we can help with any group requirements you may have. Whether it’s for a group of friends, a multi generation family holiday or simply a local walking club, we would love to help you create that perfect French itinerary.
Although our holidays aren’t guided, your group will be provided with detailed maps and instructions on how to get from place to place, but if they’d prefer to be escorted, we can provide a guide at an additional cost.
As we often use small traditional hotels and guest houses which are outside of the big towns and cities, we may sometimes struggle to accommodate larger groups, so do book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
