Rocamadour is one of my favourite French villages. Located on the edge of a cliff in the south of central France, it is known for its historical monuments and sanctuary, as well as its small goat cheese of the same name. Do not miss exploring the ramparts of the castle and the monkey’s forest!

Annecy is a town in the Alps renowned for its lake, cobbled streets and pastel-colored houses. You can do a lot of wonderful walks and hikes, as well as taste the Savoie Mont Blanc gastronomy!

Saint-Malo is a port city in the north-west of France. Granite walls encircle the city, a vestige of when the corsairs where there! Go on an excursion on the sea or discover the beaches and museums of the city, rich in history.

Hyères is located on the shore of the Mediterranean, not far from Toulon. There are a lot of magnificent places to discover around: Port-Cros, the island of Gens and the national park of Port-Clos. Also stroll around the old town and the beach of Almanarre, well known to the locals.

Located at the southern tip of the French island of Corsica, Bonifacio will impress you with its beauty. The “city of cliffs” in the middle of an expanse of blue offers many activities, cultural or relaxation. Stroll on the port, hike on the coasts or explore the citadel!

Colmar has that little air of French Venice! Located in the northeast of France, the city is known for its cobbled streets, its medieval buildings and the canals of “The Little Venise“. Visit the cellars of the city and the famous wines of Alsace. “Rue des Boulangers” is one of the streets with several beautiful half-timbered houses, not to be missed!
