France is Always Breathtaking

Aug 18, 2007
France is in Western Europe, bordering the Bay of Biscay and English Channel, between Belgium and Spain, southeast of the UK bordering the Mediterranean Sea, between Italy and Spain.

France is one of the founding members of the European Union, and has the largest land area of all members. France is also a founding member of the United Nations. The capital of France is Paris.

The worlds most romantic nation is a land of unimaginable beauty where style and culture enjoy a wonderful love affair and good living is virtually a religion. It is sophisticated, even the smallest pleasures become an education. From the mountains to the beaches, the vineyards to the cities France is always breathtaking. It is a country where life imitates art as much as art imitates life and food and wine are virtual art forms in their own right. It is little wonder that France is the most travelled country in the world. The land of poetry where folk speak the language of love, you cannot visit without learning at least a little more about yourself.

More has been written about Paris than probably any other city in the modern world. It is a place that fascinates people. It can bring out the artist in even the most ardent philistine. There are more famous landmarks here than any other city on earth the iconic Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Champs Elysee two of the greatest museums in the world, the colossal Louvre, home of the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo and the ultra modern Pompidou Centre.

The dining is sensational, the nightlife electric and the atmosphere simply oozes romance. Only two hours away on the TGV, the gastronomic capital of France, Lyons is also a treasure trove of beautiful architecture, splendid museums, wonderful parks and fine wine.

The wild at heart may prefer Marseille, a truly unique city quite unlike any other in France. Colourful, crowded and cosmopolitan its not surprising it is referred to as Frances New Orleans.

Or visit the birthplace of modern tourism, Nice with its Mediterranean beaches and world class entertainment plus the very best in sports and leisure activities. A city rich in culture, with a history stretching back over 2000 years not to mention the world's finest wine.

France is far too vast a country to do justice in a few paragraphs. There is so much to do, from skiing in Chamonix to sunbathing in the uniquely elegant La Baule, from sipping Europes most popular beer in its birthplace Strasbourg, to surfing off the coast of Brittany.

It is a country where love, wine and fashion are virtual religions, where people pride themselves in their nationality and steadfastly maintain traditions. It is history, it is adventure, it is art, it is poetry but above all it is romance.
