Country – France

What it feels like to be there…

France has pretty much perfected ‘living well’. Be it fine cuisine or country kitchen goodness, spending time in the great outdoors or in the café scene among friends, everything is in balance. Climb rocks, ski the slopes and canoe the rivers, but to really fit in take time for a glass of wine and some patisserie on the way.

Some practical information worth knowing…

Paris and Nice are France’s busiest airports, but for the Alpine region it can be better to fly into Geneva, Switzerland, and continue overland from there. The roads are great, but toll stops take time and costs add up on longer trips. Dress for the temperate climate but be ready with a good jacket if you head up in the mountains.
