Ooh la la – Parisian hotels aplenty

There's no mistaking the capital of France – the City of Light, the most visited place on the planet, home to the finest fashion designers in the world, the list goes on. Paris is more than the country's gateway; it's a destination in its own right with ample accommodation for the millions who inevitably fall in love with the city of romance.

Across the 20 arrondissements, Paris hotels vary from the comfortable confines of the Holiday Inn Paris Auteuil to the 5-star grandeur of the Sofitel Paris Le Faubourg. Moments from the Eiffel Tower you will find the Pullman, while the Novotel Paris Vaugirard Montparnasse or Mercure Paris Monty Opera can also have you sleeping in style.

Wine country through Bordeaux and beyond

Like a fine wine, France's fortified countryside can range from delicate to robust, with complexity or simplicity in its beauty. In the southwest, Bordeaux is one of the most lauded wine regions in the world, boasting multiple Mercure and Novotel locations – all earning a 4-star rating – so you can sniff, swirl, sip and sleep with ease.

Other regions that pique the interest of wine lovers include Burgundy – which has a handful of notable hotel chains to its name, with plenty of 4-star stays among them – and Champagne-Ardenne, the birthplace of bubbly.
