Holiday Caravans in France

During the past few decades tourism has become one of the leading industries in France. The wide range of climates and landscapes, along with the abundance of cultural and historical sites, architectural and artistic treasures, famous wines, foods and recreational facilities, has all combined to make France a favourite among tourists from all over the world. While traditionally the tourists coming to France were generally from other parts of Europe, recently there has been an increase in the number of tourists coming from Latin America, Asia and the Middle East. France has been consistently rated as one of the most visited country in the world.

Paris is the capital of France and is also one of the biggest tourist destinations in Europe. The cultural and artistic attraction, restaurants and famous cafes, the animations and colours of many of its areas and world renowned symbols such as the Eiffel Tower, the Latin Quarter, Montmartre, the Louvre, the Pompidou Center and the Cathedral of Notre Dame make Paris one of the most sought after destinations in the world.     Read more

Apart from the tourists that come from abroad even the French travel widely within France. With the introduction of paid holidays for industrial workers in the late 1930s, France has seen an increase in family tourism. Most of the workers in France receive five weeks of paid holidays on a yearly basis. Many of them spend time in places like Languedoc and Brittany. Some of the wealthier French would have two homes, one where they live regularly and other from where their families had migrated in the past.

Another popular location in France is the Mediterranean coast, especially the area that lies in the Provence-Côte d'Azur part. This region also includes the French Riviera which is also very popular. The Riviera was initially made popular by wealthy tourists from England as a winter resort in the 1860s. It has now become famous as a summer resort and people from all around the world visit the Riviera every year.

The number of tourists visiting the mountainous regions of France has been on the rise, especially the Rhône-Alpes region. Its popularity has increased mainly due to the winter sports it offers. Earlier people used to visit these mountains only due to health benefits but now the peaks are busy almost all of the year, especially resorts like Morzine and Chamonix, which are internationally famous.
