About Lorraine

about
things to do
map

There is more to Lorraine than an egg based tart. The region is located in the northeast of France and is a major European crossroad, which has resulted in a blend of cultural influences.

Today, Lorraine is an extremely popular holiday destination because of the setting and the amount of activities one can do there. Sailing, windsurfing and motor boating are extremely popular pastimes in this region due to the fact that vessels are unrestricted on lakes such as Madine, Gérardmer, Gondrexange and Stock.

You can enjoy the water sports as a day trip, or if you fancy a little time out of your car, there are over 700 kms of navigable waterways where you can cruise from lock to lock. You can stay in one of the riverside gites or campsites for a rest before continuing on with your drive through France.

The main airport in Lorraine is Metz/Nancy Loraraine Airport, which has direct flights from Southampton Airport.
