France

The glorious landscapes of France range from sun-kissed vineyards and sandy beaches to the snowy peaks of the Alps. Its cities include the eternally romantic capital Paris, cultural Lille and chic Nice on the French Riviera.

Across the green countryside, you will find fairy-tale châteaux and charming villages that celebrate the simple joys of good food, wine and conversation.
