Beautiful vineyards, mouth watering aromas of freshly baked bread, and one of the most romantic cities in the world: France is a country that may not be far from the UK geographically, but feels a million miles away once there. Its countryside landscapes have the ability to charm even the most stressed out of visitors, putting them in a dreamy, wine induced state of mind, while Paris feels as though you’re walking though a ruggedly beautiful movie set, where each street brings with it new and exciting events in the narrative of your trip. From the limestone cliffs at Normandy, to the historical fascinations of Provence and snow capped spectacle of the French Alps, France is filled with many diverse and magnificent places to lose yourself amongst.
