Are you looking for ideas for your next travel adventure? If so, why not give France a shot? Here are just some of the reasons it’s high time you fell in love with France.


The food
French food is known the world over, and it’s no surprise. The French are famed for their classic dishes and stunning pastries. Yes, you’ll find snails and frog’s legs here, but there’s so much more to French cuisine. Sample fresh seafood in the seaside resorts and hearty fare in the countryside villages. Opt for fine dining in Paris or indulge in an exquisite array of perfectly formed cakes. Take time to embrace the cafe culture, marvel at the patisserie windows, and be brave in your food choices.

The scenery 
France has incredible geography, and there’s a holiday to suit everyone. Enjoy a chic city break in the bustling metropolises of Paris, Lyon, or Marseille. Hire a farmhouse and get away from it all in Brittany or Normandy. Hit the powdery slopes of the rugged Alps. Or sleep under the stars in the Loire Valley.
The beaches
You may not automatically think of France if you’re looking for a beach holiday. But you’d be wrong to dismiss it. The beaches on the Cote d’Azur are an idyllic setting for catching rays and recharging your batteries. You’ll also find opulent hotels, bars, and designer boutiques on the shores if you’re treating yourself to a luxury break. If deserted beaches and rugged dunes are more your scene, make for Normandy.
