Exploring France | Newmarket Holidays

France is a country that not only provides travellers with a top travel destination featuring Newmarket Holidaysmany notable sights, but can also surprise and delight with the unexpected but surely welcome. France is the third most populated country in Europe and the largest in the European Union. As a result, it can offer virtually everything a traveller could want. The Parisian lifestyle and atmosphere is world famous – visitors can dine at fine restaurants and bistros or enjoy the well-known French cafes. However, what will delight travellers about France is that it offers all that and more. There is a reason, after all, that many of France’s regions are top draws for visitors from Europe, the UK and across the world. France is one of only three countries in Europe that has coastlines on both the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. This is significant because it means that climates and landscapes in the country range from Alpine to Mediterranean, with rural vineyards and quaint towns as rewarding to travellers as major cities like Paris.

Of course, France also has an enthralling cultural and artistic history. In fact, it continues to be a centre for culture and the arts in Europe. One does not even need to go into a museum or gallery to experience this. Remarkable architecture ranging from the historical to the visionary lines the streets throughout France, and the atmosphere of the country is full of life and invention. Travellers sometimes forget that France is indeed quite large for a European country and has so much to offer that one trip is really not enough to take it all in. There is a significant level of diversity among the French regions, and one region can have a completely different character from another – a character that needs enough time to be appreciated.

A Parisian holiday is a must do for many people and is certainly justifiable. Especially in the summertime, visiting Paris can be an experience people remember for the rest of their life. Meanwhile, the French Riviera offers a completely different, though still distinctly French, experience. From the famous resort of Cannes to exceptional food and lovely views, the Riviera offers opportunities to rest and relax as well as much to explore.
