Places In France That You Should See In Your Lifetime

Most people who visit France will go straight to Paris. However the country offers many other great places to see and I have listed a few of the ones I like below. In order to get the full benefit of a country like France it is important that you spend some time there travelling around all the different parts.


– You will find the feudal village of Beynac situated along the banks of the Dordogne River. If you have seen the movie Chocolat then you will already have caught a glimpse of this captivating area. There is a magnificent castle overlooking the area and it really is like something from a fairytale. If you haven’t already visited the village of Beynac you are certainly missing out on a special part of France.


– Mont St Michel is on a tiny island that can be walked to when the tide is out. This island has some tiny cobbled streets which are amazing and the abbey is probably one of the most famous in the whole of France. If you really want to get the most from this fantastic location then you should come when there are not so many tourists.


– Right in the heart of the French Riviera lies Nice and this town has everything that you would expect from a coastal town. Here you can enjoy long walks or you can enjoy spending the afternoon relaxing in the many outdoor cafes. This town was one of the first locations for tourists and to this day, many thousands of tourists continue to flock here each and every year.


– If you want to find a location which has a blend of both French and German culture then Alsace is the place to visit; this town has been passed between the two countries more than once over the years. You really can see what would happen when you mix the cultures of two countries when you visit this amazing town.


It is a lot of fun getting an English ferry (ferry angleterre) for a visit to the UK. Very often, though, some enjoy the delights of the Channel Tunnel (tunnel sous la manche). For thos wanting to stay in England (sejour angleterre), these are the best ways to go.
