Starting from Paris, a must-see French destination before discovering the rest, you can reach the Provence with its medieval villages and endless fields cultivated with lavender, but not only, which have inspired many impressionist painters in their paintings. Inevitable destination, the Normandy with its rocky coasts overlooking the blue sea and breathtaking views, the abbey of Mont Saint Michel located on an islet that can be discovered from the surrounding waters following the rhythm of the tides, the ancient picturesque villages and wild pastures.
It is impossible not to continue to Brittany, an ancient land, characterized by cliffs overlooking the deep blue sea, which beat their waves on the majestic rocks, and by fishing villages rich in traditions.
Then take the valley of the fairytale castles of the Loire and last but not least, reach the Côte d'Azur

with its white sandy beaches, the crystal clear sea, the cities of art, the many lively villages and its delicious culinary peculiarities.
