How about turning your French holiday into a road trip to explore Burgundy, Normandy, Auvergne or Biarritz-Pays Basque? Whatever your planned route, from Hauts-de-France to the Loire Valley and Occitanie, Campanile hotels will give you a warm welcome everywhere. Take inspiration from our guide…
Up in Hauts-de-France
East of Normandy and north of Paris, Hauts-de-France always offers visitors a warm welcome. There’s also the sea to enjoy here – so after strolling the alleys of Old Lille, visiting the Pool Museum in Roubaix or eating a few Bêtises de Cambrai, go for a breath of fresh air in the Baie de Somme or on the great beaches of the Côte d'Opale, by booking a Campanile in Calais or Dunkirk. The brand also has a hotel in Le Touquet-Paris-Plage, the most charming of the seaside resorts; another in Berck, town of kites; and another in Boulogne-sur-Mer where Nausicáa, Europe’s largest aquarium, will fascinate young and old.

Auvergne: natural beauty
Here, we truly breathe. Easily accessible at the heart of France, Auvergne offers magnificent mountains and gentle slopes, dormant volcanoes and beautiful countryside. It’s a paradise for peaceful hiking and cycling but also the simple pleasures of the table. Platters of cheeses and charcuteries are everywhere – and spa towns like Vichy are welcoming. With a view of the Chaîne des Puy mountain range, Clermont-Ferrand is a popular stopover spot with a remarkable architectural heritage, including a lava stone cathedral. Campanile offers a choice of three hotels in Auvergne, and the local must-see is Vulcania, the fascinating volcano-focused leisure park.

Celebrate life in Biarritz-Pays-Basque
Gateway to the Pyrenees and Spain, wedged between mountains and the Atlantic, Biarritz-Basque Country thrives on its traditions of surfing, espadrilles and pelota… all typically Basque, but with boldness. There’s always something going on in Bayonne, Biarritz, Saint-Jean-de-Luz or Hendaye, a quartet of choice for a territory that has a true sense of celebration and a taste for sea spray. From chocolate and ham to surfing and festivals, don’t restrict your enjoyment here; stay in a Campanile on the Basque coast for an exotic French break. Before you leave, don’t forget to buy Espelette peppers, sheep’s cheese and almond cakes.
