Charles de Gaulle once said, ‘how could one describe a country which has 365 kinds
of cheese?’ The fact of the matter is France is truly cosmopolitan;
as difficult to decipher as an enigma and as difficult unravel as a fishing net,
trawling as it does a rich and varied cultural landscape, matched only by the
sheer range of climates: the temperate climate of the north, the warm summers
and colder winters of the north-eastern regions. And the Mediterranean climate
in the south; although mountains are cooler with heavy snow in winter, with the
Jura Mountains enjoying an alpine climate most of the year round. And, lest we
forget, its onions!
the stylish boulevards of Paris, the glistening
ski slopes of the Alps to the sunlit vineyards and sun-kissed beaches, there is
simply no denying that France is a land of contrasts, presenting an infinite variety:
a wide choice of beguiling destinations, a prosperous miscellany of landscapes,
cuisines, climates and peoples, with an exceptional cultural heritage.
Whether you enjoy a game of boules, a coffee or intend to tour the magnificent
châteaux of the Loire you can set it against any of a dozen or so backdrops; the
glamorous lifestyle of the Mediterranean, or a quiet, relaxing picnic in Provence.
For those willing to explore, there are also the less familiar regions of Franche-Comté,
Gascony or Berry, deep in the green heart of France – regions firmly
embedded within the richness of the land, whose sleepy, peaceful villages offer
visitors a chance to sample the true douceur de vivre of provincial France.
visitors may be happy with the fact that the beaches of St.Tropez are only a few
minutes away from their hotels. Fewer will happy to use a boat to get there!
So just imagine if you will, this particular scenario: a picnic lunch on
a boat or a cold beer at one of the many beach or marina bars followed by a trip
in the sports cruiser around the magnificent gulf, visiting St.Tropez, Port Grimaud
and St Maxime. From any one of these you may anchor off a handsome cove to swim
and snorkel whilst your other half laps up a few of the Mediterranean sunrays
beating down onto the sand.
And if the weather permits, why not try hobie-cat
sailing. And with the moorings of your boat only metres away you can also take
off for a morning’s water-skiing or wakeboarding in delightfully warm water.
No visit to France would be complete without a visit to the Musée
du Louvre in Paris. The Musée du Louvre houses one of the worlds largest
art collections as well as being an enormous palace and one of the largest museums
in the world. Louvre was the home of the French royalty from the 14th century
and until Louis XIV moved to Versailles. In the museum and art gallery you'll
find original royal rooms and works like "Mona Lisa" by Leonardo da Vinci and
"Venus de Milo". The entrance of the museum a big glass pyramid was added to the
museum in 1989.
Not happy with the water?
Then try mountain biking across open vineyards and along forest tracks with the
smell of mimosa, pine and wild herbs. Near the top of the local mountains the
views are stunning across the gulf to the Alps Maritime beyond and ultimately
you reach the hill-top Provencal village of Gassin, claimed to be the most beautiful
village in France. Treat yourself to lunch before an exhilarating ride back to
