France is an outstanding sporting destination...
Château de Chambord - Stronghold of fascinating hunting traditions
The French coutryside is one of the prettiest in the world and a stronghold for many fascinating traditions. It is also the best destination for a gourmet and cultural holiday. No better season than fall or winter to discover Versailles, the Mont Saint Michel or the Loire Châteaux, with no tourist crowds. Provence or the Bordeaux vineyards offer also their best to the winter visitor.
A highly wife endorsed holiday...
We can say that hunting in France could be the perfect holiday for non hunting spouses. For instance we offer day trips from Paris, where non hunters can enjoy all the museums, shops and Parisian pleasures while sportsmens are afield. At the end of the day, all parties can meet again for dinner either in the countryside or in the city.
