Our graph below shows when France’s school holidays for the 2022 / 2023 academic year are, including when schools break up for the summer holidays this year. 

School children around France all have their summer holidays at the same time, usually between early July and the beginning of September. 

For other holidays, such as the winter holidays in February or the spring holidays in April, the country is split into three zones so that not everyone is on holiday at the same time. 

Check out our chart below to see the dates and plan ahead for your holidays, whether you have children at school or you do not have children and want to avoid busy periods.
