Famed as one of the world's leading manufacturers of porcelain, Limoges is something of a household name without many of us even knowing it. However, in the modern day, it's the ideal destination for fans of modest city life, a small but perfectly formed cousin to Paris.
In stark contrast to the traditional cityscape of Limoges, you can find yourself in nature's playground Périgord-Limousin Regional Nature Park in under an hour.
2,000km of trails cover the park's impressive geological and biological landscapes which you can explore by hiking on foot, horseback, mountain bike, or for something different; velo-rail.
An underrated classic, Bergerac is a destination that promises a relaxed environment in which to enjoy fine French foods and wine. Learn to craft your own exquisite chocolates, or take an outdoor adventure tour of the city's many grand castles.
Nestled at the foot of the French Alps, in Grenoble you can embark on the action-packed outdoor adventure of your choice, whether it's skiing, snowboarding or simply admiring the mountain views.
A beaming bright coastal port, the White City La Rochelle has arcaded walkways and seaside architecture that will invite you on a wander. You'll find beauty in the Bay of Biscay.
Home to the French Riviera, Nice is the ideal location for almost every holidaymaker, whether you desire a romantic retreat, golfing getaway or a spontaneous luxury jaunt. Sun Seekers will adore the spotless beaches, while culture vultures can lose themselves for hours in the countless art and history-laden museums.
The capital of romance, Paris also conceals a whole lot of family and festive fun. Breeze in and out of grand boutiques, dine in chic street cafes or bask in the glow of the Eiffel Tower - even more stunning at night.
