Four Beautiful Places to Visit in France

The French lovingly call their beloved homeland "l'Hexagone" because of its different six-sided shape. Each corner of France has its own unique character: the rough and outdoorsy French Alps, sun-drenched and slow-paced Provence, the glamorous and gorgeous Côte d'Azur coastline, and Alsace with picturesque hamlets nuzzled in vine-covered hills. Here is a list of beautiful places to visit in France:


The Châteaux of the Loire Valley

Like the act in a fairy tale, the Loire Valley is a lush, timbered scenery dotted with splendid castles along the gently flowing Loire River. Extending for 280 kilometres, from Sully-sur-Loire to Chalones-sur-Loire in Anjou, the Loire Valley is the largest UNESCO-listed site in France. The region boasts an incredibly rich cultural heritage. Throughout the 15th and 16th centuries, France's kings built luxurious country retreats here purely for performing and pleasure.


Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy

Known as "The Heavenly Jerusalem" and the "Pyramid of the Seas," this little rock-strewn islet off the shore of Normandy boasts a UNESCO-listed abbey constructed amid the 11th and 13th-centuries. The exquisite Gothic abbey church was a significant medieval pilgrimage site. Modern-day tourists still make the trip here, crossing the Bay of Saint-Michel by foot at low tide.


Biarritz & Saint-Jean-de-Luz

A blend of Parisian-style elegance and natural attractiveness, Biarritz is an upscale seaside resort with fabulous beaches. Biarritz was favoured by Empress Eugénie, who precious this seaside area of the Basque region. She selected a sandy hillside overlooking the Bay of Biscay as the location for her Imperial residence, the Villa Eugénie.


The Alsace Region

The historic cities of Strasbourg and Colmar, along with the hundreds of Alsatian villages, have a special old-world charm that is completely different from the rest of France. The architecture and setting of Alsace was influenced by neighbouring Germany, as seen in the brightly-painted, half-timbered constructions and venerable Gothic churches. Strasbourg enchants visitors with its thin cobblestone streets, scenic canals, and ornate cathedral. Colmar is the quintessential Alsatian town, full of stimulating old churches and traditional houses with flower-bedecked balconies.
