The land of food, philosophy, art and fashion has brightened our world immeasurably. A globe without Blanc, Satre, Matisse and Chanel would be a bland one indeed!

Of course, Paris is the home of haute couture; it's fitting. Its landmarks are famous: Notre Dame du Paris, the Eiffel Tower, Arc De Triomphe and Champs-Elysees. Paris is cocktails on the River Seine and croissants with class. Beyond the capital there is much to explore, from old worlds and local memory to contemporary verve. Venture to Versailles, quaff a top drop in Champagne and lounge in the Loire. Romp with the rich and famous on the French Riviera. Nice is nice, Cannes does yarns (on film) and when you want a perfect beach day, it's all about St Tropez.
France will disarm with charm and French will promise you everything. An offer to investigate, no?
