It’s fair to say the French know a thing or two about food and wine, and what could be better than a combination of the two? If you’re planning to wine and dine in France this year then you can save £10 on your return crossing by informing us of your favourite food and wine pairing. Simply fill in the form on this page with your preferred pairing and we will send you a discount code to use.

La belle France
France has that certain je ne sais quoi which has made it the world’s most popular tourist destination and almost a quarter of all British holidaymakers this summer will head across the Channel. Fall in love with Paris, conquer the outdoors in Normandy or sample the fruits of the vine in some of the country’s famous vineyards, all with a Gallic charm that can’t be matched anywhere else in the world.
France is also famous for producing a lot of the finer things in life, with some of the best food and in the world available for tourists. Sample the freshest croissants, baguettes or other baked goods, savour meaty dishes such as boeuf bourguignon, confit de canard or coq au vin or, for those of you with a sweet tooth, desserts such as crêpes, soufflé or crème brûlée.
France is also famous for its quality of wine, with even the most affordable options being produced to a high standard. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Burgundy region, home to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Chablis, as well as the world’s most expensive wine, the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti which can retail for over $40,000 per bottle.
Because of its location in the heart of the country, many tourists use Burgundy as a stop-off point on a trip to the south of France. Burgundy travel guide
