France? Ooh lá lá. The French are stereotyped as rude, beret wearing garlic eaters who are no good in a fight, but could charm skin off of a snake. Now why this might not be entirely true, there is no reason why you should not want to go to France this summer. Here are my top five reasons why you should be sipping Château d’Yquem in the land of desire at some point this year:
- The Capital
Paris is famously the most romantic city in the world for as long as we can remember. Not only will this stunning city charm your socks off with its intense romantic vibes, but it also is host to a number of famous attractions such as the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Louvre museum. The stunning history and amazing French culture will be enough to make you want to hire a company that do removals to France and move here for good.
- The Weather
France holds host to a variety of different climates that you can take advantage of throughout the year. There are oceanic climates in the western and northern coasts, transitional continental in Paris and the central region, continental in the eastern region, and Mediterranean in the southern coastal regions. This means that you are able to soak up the roasting sun in the summer in the South of France, and take to the ski slopes during the winter in the West of France. It’s a win-win whenever you go!
- The Food
Everything you’ve heard about French food is true. There is a mouth-watering array of breads, cheeses, pastries, sauces and wines that will have making the ‘mmm’ and ‘ahhh’ sounds with every mouthful. You can wander through villages and cities and never be short of a café or two to stop at for a coffee and a snack. Alternatively, browse the local food markets and nibble on some cheeses and/or chocolates as you wander through beautiful French villages, soaking in the culture.
- The Art
France is home to many famous artists and art forms that will have you in awe of their beautiful creations. Claude Monet famously created impressionism and is one of the masters of French art. You will never be short of museums to visit such as the Museum of Modern Contemporary Art in Nice or the Louvre in Paris, a museum which is arguably one of the most famous in the world, where you can slowly digest amazing pieces of art from all over the world, including the Mona Lisa!
- The Borders
If you didn’t know already, France borders eight countries! Including Andorra, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Monaco, Spain and Switzerland. That means that you not only can take advantage of the full French experience, but can also easily move on to indulge in a vast array of other cultures during your trip!
