The birthplace of Versailles and Sun King Louis XIV’s grand ambitions, and the cradle of radical creative movements from Impressionism to New Wave cinema: France has long been a game changer. Our specialists can show you how to explore the country that has turned the good life into an art form. And they’d argue that, even today, no other capital offers quite the same architectural homage to beauty, and patina of romance, as Paris.
Our specialists can craft a vacation to France that takes in its landscapes, from the mountains of the Rhône-Alpes to Provence’s lavender fields and the Riviera’s Mediterranean. They’ll also include the country’s historic sites, like the chateaux that stud the Loire Valley and the D-Day landing beaches in Normandy. Then, gastronomy-wise, they can point you in the direction of the best local produce markets, AOC-designated wineries and one-off experiences, not just in culinary hubs like Bordeaux and Lyon, but across the whole country.

I would highly recommend Infinity Worldwide Vacations. We used them for a holiday to New England which was just fabulous. They listened to what we wanted to include, the type of accommodation and budget. They always give options. They have specialists for each area which is really useful as you get first hand experience and recommendations. We are using them again for Italy which again, looks amazing…..Covid has shelved our plans for now but they have kept in touch and been incredibly flexible and helpful around re-booking.
We asked for a delay of 1 year before there was any legal requirement – Intrepid Worldwide Vacations agreed without any hassle. Last week I decided I was still not confident to travel next year and requested a refund. Infinity Worldwide Vacations not only honored our request, they did did not hesitate and very much surpassed our expectations. A very professional organization and would always use them in the future. Well done to Anna in particularly and a very big thank you!
Yet again excellent service and support. I have travelled the world of Europe with them. Would never consider using any other travel agent by far the best I have ever used. Attention to detail is fantastic
