France is one of the most popular countries in the world, bringing in almost 90 million tourists a year. Its sophisticated culinary scene, charming towns, history and, of course, the wine are among the country’s many attractions.
France’s capital, Paris, is known as the city of lights and love and it’s become a hotspot for couples on a romantic break. It’s easy to see why with its plethora of classical art, museums, fashion powerhouses and famous monuments including the Eiffel Tower and the Sacre Cœur.
Beyond the capital, France is a country filled with adventure. In the winter, visitors flock to the Alps in the north and the Pyrenees in the south to enjoy the ski season. During the summer, the Mediterranean coast is a hub for people wanting sun, sea and relaxation.
Outside of its sprawling metropolitan towns and cities, France’s backcountry exudes a simple rustic charm that once experienced, fills its visitors with a longing to return. It’s no wonder that people end up buying a second home or spending their retirement there.
With its exquisite gastronomy, fascinating history and rich cultural heritage, France has plenty to offer and you might just find yourself returning to it again and again.
