France is a land of great contrasts which ranges from the mountainous French Alps and the Pyrenees to the elegance of the Loire and other river valleys. There is the sophistication of the boulevards of Paris and the Cote d'Azur together with the simplicity of rural areas.
There is something that appeals to everyone. There is fishing in lakes, walking in old parkland or the enjoyment of the magnificent homes of Brittany. Tasting wine in a sunlit vineyard or enjoying coffee and croissants in an undiscovered sleepy village delights many visitors. While others visit the old towns, sample the glamorous jet-set lifestyle of the Mediterranean or just relax on the sun baked beaches.
France is justly famous for its cuisine and wines. It is the country to enjoy food and wine. Stay in a chateau and have the evening meal in a local restaurant while visiting the regions which produce the world famous wines of Alsace, Burgundy, Champagne, Beaujolais, Jura, Savoie, the Rhone Valley, Provence, Corsica, Languedoc, etc.
