What can be said about France that hasn’t been said already? It’s a country full of romance, beauty, natural history, amazing food, and wine. There’s a reason why it is consistently one of the top vacation destinations in the world. Whether you head north along the Atlantic in the famous wine regions of Champagne or Bordeaux or along the southern coast, you are sure to find a little taste of what makes France so amazing. These are just a few of the reasons why France needs to be at the top of your vacation list.
Start it all from Paris. No trip to France, no matter how long or short is complete without a trip to the famous City of Lights. Most likely, you’ll be connecting through there anyway so you might as well take a few days to enjoy one of the best cities in the world. You can take in the sights and enjoy the Champs Elysees, sail down the River Seine and see what makes the capital city so magical as you delight in the cafes and restaurants before heading out to the gorgeous coasts and countryside.
Sail Along the Sunny Southern Coast. For those looking for perfect beaches and exciting getaways, then it's all about heading to the resort towns located along the south. Of course, most people begin from Nice which offers you an opportunity to see the glitter and glam of the jet set of Europe, but from here you can sail along the coast and discover the many small fishing villages and other beautiful locations along France’s Mediterranean coasts or even head out to nearby islands like Corsica and Sardinia.
Discover a Different Side of France. There are definitely two ways to see France. There’s the traditional tourist route through Paris and down through the southern coasts to some of the amazing beach getaways. Those looking for something a little more authentic, however, head north along the Atlantic Coast. Although the water temperature is a bit cooler, you can enjoy the incredible sandy beaches of Normandy and a more unique taste of true French landscapes and cuisine. It’s an opportunity to dive into a world of castles, culture, and wine. Of course, the best way to do it is to give yourself enough time and see it all so you can truly immerse yourself in France!
