Overview

Operated by ?

Isn’t it time you nipped monotony in the bud? From fields of yellow sunflowers to cellars of pink rosés, this colorful tour of France invites you to survey the sensuous land and pick the perfect bouquet. Fragrant gardens and aromatic wines are just the beginning of the sweet experiences that await from the City of Light to the sunlit regions of Normandy, and the Loire Valley. Tiptoe through the tulips at Claude Monet’s rainbow-colored gardens, float down the castle hallways in dreamy Châteaux country, and swirl and sip your way from the lively cafés of Paris to the storied wineries of the French countryside. Traveling from the Seine to the sea, we’ve handpicked the best coastal experiences—the resort town of Deauville, the famous Abbey of Mont St. Michel, and the poignant beaches of Normandy, site of the Allied Forces’ D-Day invasions during World War II.

While you’re sampling soufflé and champagne, why not indulge in shepherd’s pie and shandy, too? It’s easy when you add a 3-day Monograms vacation to London to your tour of France. Board the high-speed Eurostar train for guided sightseeing and ample time on your own to explore the palaces, pubs, and pints that await.
