The most visited country in the world and it’s easy to see why – a honeymoon in France is the pure perfection.

Most couples will start in Paris – home to charming bistros and fascinating museums. Get that selfie with the Eiffel Tower behind you both (at Place Du Trocadéro) and try to get up close to the Mona Lisa at the Musée Du Louvre but to walk or stroll is to truly experience Paris – we recommend Jardin Du Luxembourg and Jardin Des Tuileries. The steps to the Sacré-Coeur are also worth the climb. A trip to the 800-hectare UNESCO World Heritage Site, the breath-taking Château de Versailles, is an absolute must.

Beyond Paris, much awaits. Explore the beaches and pretty medieval towns of Brittany and Normandy, the vineyards of Bordeaux and Burgundy, the châteaux of Loire Valley and the lavender landscapes and quaint villages of Provence.

France’s southern coastline, and particularly, Côte d’Azur, is spectacular where glamorous towns like St. Tropez, Cannes and Antibes and seaside cities of Nice and Marseilles and the micro-state of Monaco await.

Live your Mediterranean dream on beaches like Pampelonne and Calanque d’En-Vau.

Thinking of travelling in winter? Find the world’s top ski destinations at Courchevel and the valleys of Chamonix-Mont-Blanc.


The best time to visit France for a honeymoon is from April to October when the weather is warm. From July to August, the weather heats up with temperatures with average temperatures around 30°C / 90°F with the heaviest crowds. During winter, it is cooler, with average temperatures in Paris of 5°C / 40°F in December/January.


Is France good for a honeymoon? Yes, considered the home of romance.
