Kite surfing in the Vendée

Big waves and high excitement, you’ll find all you need at one of the kite surfing schools along the Vendéen coast.

A blend of surfing, kite flying, gymnastics and aerobatics, this is an incredible, high-adrenaline experience for those with the upper body strength – and the nerve - to give it a go.

See Brittany's mighty standing stones

In the heart of Brittany stand the Carnac Stones, a vast set of megalithic sites made up of more than 3,000 prehistoric standing stones, some thought to be more than 6,000 years old.

Roughly hewn from local stone and erected by the Bretons from around 4,500 BC, their purpose is unknown, but their power to arouse wonder is legendary.

Storm the Château de Pierrefonds

Rising majestically from the leafy Compiègne Forest, Château de Pierrefonds is the fairytale castle with a fascinating past. Built in the 15th century, it was then razed by Louis XIII in the 17th century, before being magnificently rebuilt by Napoleon III in the 19th century.

A masterpiece in its own right, and within easy reach of Paris.

Enjoy the peace in Northern France

The battlefields of Normandy and Picardy are a beautiful and solemn reminder of the folly of war and a fitting tribute to the fallen.

So whatever the age of your party, a visit to the D-Day landing beaches and the battlefields of WW1 and WW2 is a fascinating and worthwhile way to explore Europe’s recent history.
