Media Release: Mid-term holidays – get a dose of autumn sun in France

Atout France + France

Crowds have gone, prices have dropped and the days are still long and warm so here’s your last chance make the most out of the Indian summer

New chronicles are being launched on our blog for you to draw inspiration for your next travel piece! Are you more active water sports, family escapes or do you prefer nature and wildlife?

Our first series this week will start with six places in France where you can come face to face with exotic animals and see buffaloes, tigers, wolves, lions – the whole nine yards!

Whether you’re looking for an African safari minutes away from Versailles Palace or a nature reserve that’s a stone’s throw away from the French Riviera, we’ve got it and with all the information you need.

With over 5,000 kilometres of coastline, we also decided to kick off, starting next Monday, a week dedicated to water sport activities in France: Experience crashing waves by kite surfing in Leucate, Antibes or Almanarre.

Discover underwater marvels by diving in Corsica, Marseilles or Arcachon. Feel the rush of the wind by sailing on the Atlantic or Mediterranean coast.

Budget holidays and short breaks will also make the headlines of our blog by the end of the month so stay tuned!

Don’t miss out! Head on over to our My France à Moi blog to see what we’re up to. And why not get in touch to let us know what you’d like us to cover next?
