MORE INFORMATION ABOUT FRANCE

It was an unexpected taste of the sun-kissed southern France good life. Our honeymooners returning from a Luberon vineyard to their luxury A&K villa in Gordes to find Nadege, a brilliant local chef, cooking a surprise feast of zucchini tart, followed by Provencal lamb stew and cherry clafoutis, all freshly sourced from Saint- Rémy market, and served al fresco on a terrace ignited gold by the sunset. 'Magnifique' needs no translation.

Food features regularly in guest's feedback; from impromptu wine, cheese and saucisson tastings with guides Benoit and Florence - 'I'll never forget my husband cutting into an enormous wheel of Camembert' - to wonderful rustic restaurants we'd recommended.

Indeed, whether you're in an exclusive A&K villa, upmarket boutique hotel or relaxed family retreat, our French team will advise on everything from eating and history, to culture and outdoor activities. As part of our multi-centre European operation providing seamless continental travel for 25 years, they know the country inside out. Expect the best, multi-lingual specialist guides, and long-established contacts that allow us to offer unique insider perspectives on France's rich cultural heritage and contemporary life including wine tasting in Saint-Émilion with a respected expert to visiting Cezanne's private Provence studio with a working artist.

Take a holiday to France with Abercrombie & Kent in 2014 and you'll find Normandy's D-Day beaches and WW1 battlefields - particularly poignant given next year's centenary; Napoleon 111's magnificent Parisian Boulevards, where we'll happily arrange tours of the capital's eclectic neighbourhoods with a local; and the surf-lashed sands of Southwest France.

We'll show you Brittany's atmospheric fishing ports; Bordeaux and Burgundy's world-famous vineyards; and the imposing French Alps, where A&K's premium chalet rentals offer top-notch winter skiing and spectacular summer hiking. And we haven't even mentioned wild and increasingly popular Languedoc; Provence's lovely lavender-scented villages, and the timeless Riviera from Nice to St Tropez, with exclusive beaches, fashionable bars and vast yachts.

It's all perfect for a touring holiday, and, as ever, A&K's team go the extra mile. 'Part of our trip was self-drive,' wrote one guest. 'Our chauffeur, who'd driven us up to that point, leant us his personal GPS, programmed with all our upcoming stops. That really is service.'
