Whether you yearn for the rich heritage of Route St Jacques, a journey which takes you past ancient shrines from pilgrims and medieval Conques; or for the sights and sounds of the French Riviera, which can be captured by a walking holiday in Nice, France is an idyllic destination for walkers, offering variety, culture and beauty.
From some of the most accessible yet wild mountain peaks in Europe, to winding coastal trails on Corsica, scented with wild rosemary, walking holidays in France offer the full range. In Mediterranean Masterpieces, see the light that inspired Matisse and azure seas, which have been drawing people in for centuries.
For history and culture, look no further than the pilgrimage paths criss-crossing the land. In many places in rural France the experience of the pilgrim has changed little with ancient villages, churches and monasteries being remarkably well-preserved over the centuries.
Walks range from gentle strolls around medieval towns, through to vigorous hikes in the Western Alps and Pyrenees.
