Map of France
From the tempting smell of freshly baked baguettes and the first sip of fruity Beaujolais, to the bustle of colourful markets and the sight of locals playing pétanque in the village square, France is bursting with iconic images and delicious cuisine. Whether you’re searching for a cosy countryside gîte, planning the perfect Provençal lunch or working out how to get to sunny Corsica from the glittering Côte d’Azur, use our map of France to plan your trip.
If you’re heading to the Southwest, enjoy Bordeaux’s celebrated confit de canard with a glass of the region’s famous red wine, and canoe or kayak down the Dordogne river, where you’ll pass the dramatic Beynac-et-Cazenac commune cascading down the steep riverbank. Or explore the country by bike and cycle from château to château in the picturesque Loire Valley. Don’t leave France without sampling their many delicious cheeses, you’ll find creamy Camembert and pungent Livarot in the heart of Normandy.Find out more about Francechevron_right
