Compare the best France flights

France is located in the heart of Europe and France flights from the UK are easy to find and can be relatively cheap. This country has a wide variety of things to see and do depending on the sort of holiday you are looking for.

Why go?

Whether you're looking for romance in Paris, glamour in St Tropez, adventure in Chambery or history in Lyon, France has something for everyone...

Due to its convenient location, France can also become the gateway for you to reach other places within Europe.

If you are looking for adventure and enjoy skiing then either fly to Chambery (CMF) in France or take a flight to Geneva (GVA) for the French Alps. The Mediterranean island of Corsica can be reached by either flying to Marseille (MRS) and catching a ferry to Corsica or by taking a flight to Bastia (BIA) or Figari (FSC).

France has so much to see and do that it will be difficult to choose your options. If you are planning a long holiday then try Brittany in the north or cosmopolitan resorts such as Nice and Marseille on the Cote D'Azur in the south. The short flight time from the UK (at most an hour and a half) means that France is also the ideal place for a short break and Paris with its architecture, culture and food is the perfect destination for a city break.

How to get there?

There are various options for you to get to France. Find out the best one for you...

Flights to France leave regularly from UK airports such as London Gatwick (LGW), London Heathrow (LHR) and London Luton (LTN) but it is also possible to fly to some French destinations from UK regional airports such as Manchester (MAN) and East Midlands (EMA).

Getting to and from the airport

Once your flight lands you'll want your onward journey to be as easy as possible. Here are your options...

Getting from the airport to your destination should not be difficult as most French cities have a good public transport network so you can easily reach the centre but France also has an excellent rail network allowing you to fly to one destination and then complete your journey by train. The French road network is also excellent so hiring a car and collecting it from the airport when you land is another option to consider if you want to venture further than your flight destination.

Where to stay?

A country of contrasts, France offers fabulous cities, wonderful beaches, soaring mountains and rolling vineyards. So where should you stay?

Fabulous Paris is a capital just waiting to be explored and adored. Book your accommodation here to see world-famous sights such as the Eiffel Tower and Champs-Élysées, to relax in pavement cafes with a glass of wine, and to immerse yourself in history and culture in the many museums and galleries.

Those looking for a sophisticated beach break should consider booking accommodation in Nice in the south of France. Relax in beach bars, take a dip in the sparkling Med and visit the pretty flower markets in the city's old town. During your stay you could also take a trip to Cannes, glitzy Monaco and glamorous San Tropez.

Adventurous and sporty types could consider the French Alps for their holiday. During the summer you can enjoy great hiking and cycling, while the winter sees skiers and snowboarders flocking to its peaks.

There is a huge range of accommodation in France, offering everything from high-end hotels and apartments to converted farmhouses and gites.
