France

 

If you think France is just Paris you are in for a delightful surprise.  It is one of the most blessed countries on earth, with majestic mountains, historic battlegrounds, impressive chateaus, rolling acres of vineyards, lively marinas, and quaint villages with cobbled stone streets. And some of the best cheeses, wines and food in general.  Several major regions provide for varied experiences beyond Paris.  We have recently visited some new areas and will be writing about These trips shortly.  In the Interim, please feel free to take a look at the tours of all areas.

The French Riviera – Along the Med with colorful marinas, waterfront dining and sunbathing.
