Macarons, croissants, baguettes and cheeses. For the food, alone, a trip to France is worth the money. This wonderful country is full of history, architecture, grandeur and romance.
Ah France. Land of the baguette and macaron.
Home of the revolution and the amazing Palace of Versailles.
I’ve been to Paris three times – which still doesn’t seem like enough – and ventured beyond Paris to see the palace at Versailles.
I also love to frequent the gorgeous Cote d’Azur in France’s south. I tend to base myself in Nice, but also managed to visit Antibes, Grasse, Eze Village, Cannes, Saint Paul de Vence, Menton and Villefranche-sur-mer in my travels so far.
With the holiday season looming, I’ve assembled a collection of fabulous and unique places to celebrate Christmas abroad.
There’s nothing quite like strolling amongst the historic neighbourhoods of Europe’s most beautiful old towns and fairytale villages.
Montmartre is the beating bohemian heart of Paris. This area still feels like a quaint artsy village, rather than a big city and the local food scene here is wonderfully delicious.
A day trip to Cannes should be on the cards when visiting the French Riviera. This former fishing town now punches well above its weight for glitzy, luxe experiences by the sea.
Grasse is the home of French perfume, but there are plenty more things to do in Grasse than just buying exquisite smelling scents. Grasse is located just a little way inland from the French Riviera.
Antibes is one of the French Riviera’s hidden gems. There are so many things to do in Antibes such as exploring the old town or visiting the Picasso Museum.

There are lots of things to do in the lovely coastal town of Villefranche-sur-Mer on the French Riviera. From beaches to ancient citadels, there’s much to explore.
Compiling a list of the best National Parks in Europe is giving me serious wanderlust. I can't wait until I can make the long trip over to the continent again. For now, though, I'll have to be content trawling through the amazing contributions from this exceptional...
A Day Trip To Èze VillageMy day trip to Èze Village begins on a rare cloudy French Riviera morning. Weather is no issue here, though. As soon as I walk up the hill and enter the weathered stone ramparts of Èze Village, I am spellbound. This small, walled medieval town...
How to get to Saint-Paul de Vence from Nice? Nice is the perfect base for a French Riviera holiday, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't head out and explore the other towns on the Cote d'Azur. Once such town that is unmissable is the hilltop artistic haven that...
Menton Day Trip A Menton day trip should absolutely be on your French Riviera bucket list. In my opinion, beautiful Menton is the French Riviera’s best kept secret. The border town is the last stop on the Cote d’Azur before crossing into Italy, but is often forgotten...
