France is the most visited country by tourists in the world, and rightly so – it is a beautiful country of stark contrasts, from the high alpine cols of the Alps and the Pyrénées, to the wild Atlantic coast, the volcanoes of The Massif Central, to the scorchingly hot Camargue and that’s just a small part of the story of the beautiful country that France is.

Why do we love France so much?

We just love the contrast and the beauty of the countryside, especially in the southern part of the country… couple that with the rich culture, language, gastronomy, customs and good living that so few countries are able to offer today and that would be some of our main reasons – do you need more?

At its nearest point, France is only about 21km from the British coast, so it is pretty easy for Brits to get to France and that is just what they do – in their droves, but how much of the real France do they get to experience?

The question is, why do so many of us come to France and even end up living here full-time?

Well, I guess the main reasons, although fairly diverse, are the open spaces, the culture, the gastronomy, the language, the countryside and the weather – see there they are again.

On this site there are:

  • Things to see
  • Things to do
  • The culture & history
  • The gastronomy and “terroir”
  • The people
  • Traditions & customs
  • Great places to stay
  • Fantastic activities
  • Art & architecture

We often talk about “The Hidden France” – it is a bit of a misnomer as it is only hidden to those who don’t discover it – it’s even “hidden” to our French friends as there is always the aspect of “it’s always there to discover when we want” – the only problem is that we don’t take the time and trouble to discover it – because it is always there!

Our aim is also to promote anything French, by way of guest blog posts and listings.

We hope that we can help you to have a marvelous French experience through our tips, guides and help and we wish you bon voyage, bon appétit & bon séjour!
