The Essential

Imagine endlessly varied landscapes, preserved buildings from across the ages and works in every style, museums of international calibre, an abundance of natural splendours: you are in France, the top tourist destination in the world.
The destination ticks so many boxes, the hardest thing, or the most enjoyable, will be for you to choose what to do. Sea or mountains? Town or country? Warm or cool? Past, present or future? Michelin-starred restaurant or neighbourhood bistro? Fête de la Musique or traditional carnival? Diversity reigns supreme, and all the better for holidaymakers!
Brittany and its windy coastline, the colourful Basque Country with one foot in Spain, Paris and the iconic Eiffel Tower, the Côte d'Azur and its seaside resorts, Mont Blanc, Mont St-Michel, the châteaux of the Loire Valley… The list is endless.
France is also a mosaic of regions, each with its own distinct identity, enriched by its unique skills and traditions. Join in the fêtes organised in the small villages, meet artisans, and sample the food, because the most delicious specialities, starting with wines and cheeses, await you in the four corners of France.
