Let's talk
I fell completely in love with the south of France whilst I was living there and perfecting my French – beautiful scenery, charming seaside towns and stunning weather. And I can’t stress enough how good the food is. I think I had a freshly baked baguette and a glass of wine every single day!

Places to go in France

The City of Lights and City of Love, Paris has been blazing a trail on the global stages of architecture, fashion, food and culture for centuries. Connecting the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Sacré-Coeur, and the Arc de Triomphe, Haussmann’s architectural genius shines throughout. Making up the city, each arrondissement, or district has its own unique personality. Starting with the monuments and artistic heritage of Paris 1, you can make your way all the way to the bohemian streets of Paris 18, former home of Van Gogh, Picasso and the Moulin Rouge, and the Père Lachaise Cemetery of Paris 20 – final resting place of Chopin, Oscar Wilde, and Jim Morrison.

France boasts a history that has shaped the world. You’ll find it refracted in the mirrored halls of the Château de Versailles; on the battle-scarred D-Day Beaches of Normandy and grasses of the Somme Battlefields; in the arches of the Pont du Gard; and in the Renaissance-era rooms of the Château d’Amboise, to name just a few. If you’ve had your fill of history and culture, take in the mountain ranges of the Alps and the Pyrenees, or slow down the pace in Provence where you can wander between lavender fields and olive groves, or while away a long evening on the Côte d’Azur.
