Made for You - tailored holidays
Make your holiday just a little more special
At Belle France, we aim to give you a unique and memorable experience on your holiday, and we're happy to customise your itinerary to suit your plans or preferences.
Whether you want to add an extra night, arrange a wine tasting or upgrade your accommodation or dining options, we'll organise everything on your behalf so that you can sit back and look forward to a special and truly luxurious break.
Our established relationships with hoteliers, local bike shops and taxi drivers mean that all your needs before and during your trip can be met.
Add extra nights to enrich your itinerary
Sometimes a day just isn't enough. Add an extra day or two to your holiday and slow down the pace.
Arrange excursions such as wine tastings
Visiting France is an excellent opportunity to appreciate some of its most famous produce. We can arrange wine tastings in any of the principle wine regions including Burgundy, Bordeaux, Loire and Alsace. We can also organise tastings for Cognac and Calvados in their respective regions.
Upgrade your accommodation or dining options
Some of our standard holidays have the option of upgrading your hotel or dining options for an extra special experience without the Prestige price tag.
Upgrade your travel options
Want to arrive at your destination feeling relaxed and ready to go? Upgrade to first class travel via Eurostar and enjoy access to the first class departure lounge, spacious seats, seat-side power sockets, a generous luggage allowance and a light meal and drink served at your seat.
Ride or Walk with GPS
With some holidays you can replace our standard printed route book with turn-by-turn directions sent directly to your smartphone. Think of it as a sat-nav for your bike, complete with audio and visual cues and warning alerts.
Ride with GPS account required. App available for Android and iOS devices.
Add a little 'me time'
A handful of our Prestige hotels offer spa facilities meaning that you can totally relax after a day of activity with a soothing massage, gentle facial treatment, a dip in the pool or perhaps some time in the sauna.
Bring your dog
Increasingly, holidaymakers choose to take their four-legged friends away with them and Belle France customers are no exception. A selection of the hotels we work with are happy to accommodate small, well-behaved 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
