Save Place
84250 Le Thor, France
Summer, mid-afternoon in the South of France--there's no better place to be than in the shade, cicadas singing overhead, taking a nap in a hammock hung from a medieval village-wall by a lazy, quiet river... My wife and I were visiting friends in...
Save Place
13260 Cassis, France
The Calanques de Cassis are also of Marseille, and stretch the swath of scenic coastline between the two cities. You can hike around and enjoy the French national park on foot, or tour by sea. This photo was taken on a 3-hour boat tour that...
Save Place
41150 Chaumont-sur-Loire, France
Not only is this a beautiful château but is has an incredible view of Loire Valley. Besides the chateau which often houses an art exhibit on its top floor, there are multiple gardens on the grounds that are gorgeous. There is a garden festival...
Save Place
La petite France for me is the cutest area in Strasbourg. Really enjoy the historical atmosphere here. .. Just walking around, watching people while having a cup of coffee, taking some pictures and a boat tour to see those timbered house... C'est...
Save Place
L'Île-Rousse, France
For our first visit to Corsica, friends encouraged us to start in the south- the Michelin-starred stronghold of the island and beachy birthplace of Napoleon. But crisp turquoise water and a mountainous landscape awaited to the north. We began in...
Save Place
92 Chemin Olive, 83110 Sanary-sur-Mer, France
Nice sandy beach between rocky coves where you can discover underwater sea world. It is also where the 'Mousquemers' (Thailliez, Dumas, Cousteau) tested the first scuba.
Save Place
Velleron, France
Early summer in Provence--cicadas in the trees and lines of lavender stretching to the horizon under a Van Gogh sky...Clichéd it might be, but the setting is heady...
Save Place
06360 Èze, France
The garden of Èze (also known as the exotic garden) is a jewel. If the grounds and the view over the Mediterranean don't take your breath away, check for a pulse! Going early is recommended, if only to have the garden to yourself and as few other...
Save Place
Monte Carlo, Monaco-Ville, Monaco
Monte Carlo is an awesome place where luxury and beauty coexist harmoniously. Traveling to Nice is the way of getting to the capital of Monaco. The buildings are beautiful and the people living there are so hospitable ! Places like the Palace, the...
Save Place
64500 Saint-Jean-de-Luz, France
A short drive from the somewhat more crowded beaches and pinxto stands of San Sebastian, Spain, the twin towns of St Jean de Luz and Biarritz in France are worth the drive (and the $20 Euros in highway tolls!). The water is too rough for children,...
Save Place
23 Rue Jean Larrive, 69003 Lyon, France
$$$$
Best frites (aka French fries) EVER. They were hand-cut by the 87-year old owner, Madame Giraud. I wrote about her in my AFAR article about Lyon's bouchons. These frites were pure heaven paired with Madame's steak with brown butter. (Yes, I did...
Save Place
Lac Leman has the most spectacular view of the French Alps as a backdrop, and you could bike around it for days and even weeks visiting and staying at charming little villages and towns along the way....
Save Place
84250 Le Thor, France
Ahh, to lie in a hammock on a summer afternoon in the South of France... My wife and I had gone to visit friends who lived in LeThor, a town of a few thousand on the banks of the Sorgue River in Provence. (Between the very visited cities of...
