For a Taste of the Good Life, Vacation in La Belle France

Museums, romance, food, fashion, architecture, art—to vacation in France is to experience fine living. This is a country that has inspired many brilliant painters, and its charming heritage continues to fascinate the modern traveler. When a capital city has some of the world’s most famous attractions, and a country is the most visited tourist destination in the world, where do you begin? Start and end in Paris, for sure. But once you’ve inhaled its iconic architecture, world-class galleries and museums, and lounged at terrace cafés, patisseries, and bistros, move on to make your acquaintance with what the rest of France has to offer. Get an Enchanting Travels expert to help plan your itinerary, or you may never leave the magnificent “City of Light”, world headquarters for fine dining, legendary designers, and haute couture.

Not far from Paris, go castle- and chateau-hopping in the Loire Valley and immerse yourself in some of the finest traditions of wine making and gourmet dining. Wine-lovers cannot miss a visit France’s wine capital Bordeaux where wine bars and picturesque outlying estates allow you to taste the splendorous wines produced here. A food, market, or degustation tour may be the best way to explore this region, but Bordeaux is also one of France’s many UNESCO World Heritage sites.

The Provence region, famous for endless fields of lavender and wine estates that produce the most perfect pink rosé wine, is dotted with storybook pretty towns and villages. The southernmost part of this province is the French Riviera or the Côte d’Azur, lined with chic seaside resorts. Relive medieval history in Provence’s riverside city of Avignon and spend a while in sunny Nice, which has the added attraction of being a hotbed of culture and art. 

Close to the Rhône Valley and the vineyards of Provence and Burgundy, the city of Lyon is often considered France’s traditional gastronomic capital. Savor French cuisine at the best bouchons, but don’t neglect to marvel at the city’s Renaissance architectural gems and exquisite museums.   

World War II history buffs must make a pit stop at Normandy’s beaches or other D-Day sites and museums. Then head to the magical island abbey of Mont-St-Michel. Further inland, sample some of Normandy’s world-renown produce: Camembert cheese, Calvados brandy, and apple cider.On your holiday in France stop off at champagne cellars in Reims and live it up in world-class cities like Strasbourg. One thing is for certain though, whether you’re viewing the grand palace at Versailles or stunning alpine vistas from the ski resort of Chamonix, France will bowl you over at every step.

One of the very best travel experiences I have ever had. We even got updates once at 3 am! He also made one change in one day’s itinerary to accommodate our wishes which was very wonderful.
