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. This beautiful area was featured in the film Chocolat and if you have seen that then you will already have an idea of it’s beauty. The entire area is like something from a fairy tale with the fabulous castle overlooking it. You really are missing a truly spectacular area of France if you have never been here.


– When the tide is out you can walk over to a tiny island and here you will find the beautiful Mont St Michel. 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.


– An example of a truly fantastic coastal town is Nice which is right in the centre of the French Riviera. There are many outdoor cafes here where you can spend time relaxing or you can take some really lovely long walks. Nice was one of the first real tourist destinations in the world and people continue to flock there today.


– Alsace is a town which has been ruled by both France and Germany many times over the years and because of this you will find a unique blend of both cultures. This is a really special place and you can see from the buildings what happens when two cultures collide.


It’s great getting an English ferry (ferry angleterre) for a trip to the UK. Quite often though, people enjoy using the Channel Tunnel (tunnel sous la manche). For thos wanting to stay in England (sejour angleterre), these ways are the best means of getting there.
