What's to be noted is there are many verbs that are generally not used in the present continuous;often they denote a state or perception or cognition.They don't denote an activity that is in progress or transition or process.They are..........
want, understand, think, sense, abhor, care, cost, depend, deserve, forgive etc.
The only sentence appears errorless is.... " Do you want to go to France ?

The normal question is, "Do you want to go to France?"
"Are you wanting to go to France?" is grammatically correct but unusual.
And the other two are simply wrong.
The second and last are wrong. The other two (1 and 3) are fine as written.

"Do you want to go to France?" is correct.
"Are you wanting to" is US Southern dialect.

No. 3 is the form used by native speakers.
No. 4 and No. 2 are wrong.
No.1 might be used in some circumstances. Stick to No. 3 in general.

The first sentence is grammatically correct but not the usual way of asking that question.
Sentence two is not grammatically correct and would not make sense to a native English speaker.
The natural way of asking would be, "Do you want to go to France?"
