world-class art and architecture, blessed with natural beauty and coastlines, croissants and champagne
France’s cultural repertoire is staggering, in volume and diversity. It’s so much more than the known emblems: the Eiffel tower, the Gardens of Versailles. It has an extraordinary wealth of museums, galleries, ateliers and above all: highest class cuisine – which is of enormous importance to the French whose gastronomy goes far deeper than just eating exceedingly well. Embrace the luxury of simple, everyday rituals being transformed into unforgettable moments, be it a coffee and croissant in the Parisian cafe, a stroll through the lily-clad gardens Monet painted, or a walk on a beach in Brittany scented with the subtle infusion of language, music and mythology.
Journey from Northern France’s cliffs and sand dunes to the glittering blue sea of the French Riviera and Corsica’s green oak forests. Outdoor action is what France’s lyrical landscape demands – and there’s something for everybody. Whether you end up walking across wave-rippled sand to Mont St-Michel or through the lush greenery along the river Loire.
