French Travel Service, celebrating 65 years of excellence.
2017 marks the 65th anniversary of French Travel Service offering great holidays to France. Originally owned by SNCF French National Railways, the company began existence by packaging specially chartered trains to the four corners of the “Hexagone” The speed by which you will reach your destination these days has greatly improved since those halcyon days but the concept of the relaxed train journey without having to endure the inconvenience, hustle and bustle of airports is still as appealing now as it was back in 1952. The announcement of further direct TGV links and line enhancements such as the Paris to Bordeaux route cutting journey times by nearly 2 hours and Paris to Rennes by 45 minutes means that your train travel experience through France continues to improve.
“Old Menton with its steep tiers of houses huddled one on top of the other, its mysterious myriad of rippling patches of light and dark, its sudden flashes of sun and of blue church towers, all projected against the velvet opalescence of the mountains.”
Octave Mirabeau (1848-1917).
As well as its captivating capital, France has an endless range of pleasures to offer holidaymakers, from elegant, historic cities to fascinating areas off the beaten track in Provence and Corsica. Not to mention the stylish beach resorts of the famous French Riviera.
