Beyond Paris

France, is so much more than Paris, I often say: you haven’t been to France, if you have only seen Paris! France, the number one tourist destination in the world, hosts 85 million visitors a year*!
France is divided into 13 regions (states), France’s regional mapped officially changed in 2016, with rich varying landscape, architecture, art, history, people, and an unmatched gastronomyregionsnew.

To make it easier for you to decide where to visit, I have organized the regions based on geographical access,  similar offerings, and regions that  I found to be worthwhile or magical. In the France Explore Region & Cities, you are introduced to one of the regions I have visited. The page may include topics like:

  • where to visit
  • how to get there
  • where to stay
  • where to find eat
  • how to manage the daily essentials

France has a list of most beautiful villages, so imagine how lovely it would be to discover the regions and some of these villages!
