France

La France offers you the perfect vacation

France is, among other things, 8000 museums, close to 40 UNESCO-World heritage sites, 500 annual festivals, wines that range from the inexpensive to the high-end vintages, and luxury designer items. These are just a few of the things that spring to mind when we think of the EU´s third largest member, France, the home of elegance. There is certainly no lack of options available to explore when you visit France. The country´s13 regions all have something to offer any”bon vivant”! Explore the capital, Paris – City of Light – where a trace of Chanel perfume wafts by on the breeze, where the food is excellent and the atmosphere romantic. Treat yourself to exclusive designer items in the trendy boutiques of the Rue St. Honoré, or satisfy your sweet tooth with pastries or macaroons from Ladurée. Immerse yourself in great works of art beneath the glass pyramid of the Louvre, or be entranced by the large, water lily paintings of Claude Monet that adorn the walls of the Musée de L’Orangerie along the Seine.

The Gastronomy of France

“The gastronomic meal” is an important part of French culture. In France, as is the custom, families, and friends gather together to mark important occasions, and to celebrate the great traditions of French cuisine. It is also one of the reasons that UNESCO has declared the French”gastronomic meal” a”world intangible heritage”. Experience it for yourself – and be inspired to get into the true French spirit on your journey…Vive la France! Take a stroll in the French capital´s green parks, get acquainted with French art and cultural traditions – or shoot the breeze over a pastis in a neighborhood cafe. Take a trip to Nice on the Côte de Azur and watch the world go by over a creamy cafe au lait in one of the many cafes along the Promenade des Anglais. Feast on everything from crepes to haute cuisine in Lyon, a food lover’s paradise, or lose yourself in the tranquillity of the gardens at Fontenay Abbey in Bourgogne. Sip expensive bubbly from Champagne, extravagant wines from the vineyards along the Rhine or Brandy steeped in traditions handed down through the ages in the Cognac region. France has plenty to delight both the body, soul and mind.
