France has the higher elevation.

France - Mont Blanc 4,808 m (15,781 ft)

Spain - Pico de Teide (Tenerife) on Canary Island 3,718 m (12,198 ft)

There is some room for discussion. While France has the tallest peak in European Union, much of France is lowland areas. In contrast, much of Spain is on a mid-level plateau. This means the on average a place in Spain will have higher elevation than a place in France.
