Alsace

Strasbourg, the capital of Alsace lies on the German border. Renowned for its gastronomy (kugelhof and tarte flambée) and famous white wine, historic towns, half timbered houses and castles, Alsace offers the best of both worlds - French wine and German beer.
When the Chablis and Pinot Noir have been uncorked. and the Bresse chicken and fat, chewy escargots have soothed the soul, consider a barge trip along a tranquil canal. Follow a themed motoring route or brush up on the region’s history and visit an abbey or châteaux.
The birthplace of Napoleon, Corsica is a mountainous trekking region. Harbours, lagoons and beaches have made Corsica a popular holiday spot. Hole-in-the-wall bistros focus on fresh seafood and the opulence of the French Riviera is just a boat ride away.
A largely agricultural region (but for the metropolis of Toulouse), the religious sanctuaries of Rocamadour, Lourdes and Conques are located here. Explore medieval cities, pretty villages, rolling countryside, UNESCO sites and Mediterranean beaches.
Traditional fishing ports and family-friendly beaches contrast with the elegant resorts of Deauville, Trouville and Honfleur. The Abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel and the 1000-year-old Bayeux Tapestry are ‘must sees’. Rural Normandy is a serene agricultural region.
Drenched in sunshine, this is the region of dazzle, glamour, famous artists, Roman monuments, a papal palace, meadows of purple scented lavender, sunflowers and groves of olive trees. Sit under a plane tree, sip a pastis, nibble on olives and watch the pétanque.
