one of the largest countries in Europe, Frances has a
diversity landscape, population and culture. The Alps near
the Italian and Swiss borders is western Europe's highest
point at Mont Blanc. The forest covered Vosges Mountains are
in the northeast, and the Pyrénées are along
the Spanish border. Except for extreme northern France, the
country may be described as four river basins and a plateau.
Three of the streams flow west; the Seine into the English
Channel, the Loire into the Atlantic, and the Garonne into
the Bay of Biscay. The Rhône flows south into the
Mediterranean. The Rhine is most of France's eastern border.
In the Mediterranean, about 115 miles southeast of Nice, is
the island of Corsica. Of course most travelers go to Paris.
And why not. The city is unlike any in the world where you
can spend a whole day at the Louvre, take a dinner boat
cruise, go to the top of the Eiffle Tower or walk the
streets past outdoor restaurants and coffeeshops, and
meander through unique shops. The Loire valley is a
wonderful place to tour ancient castles, taste wine at
reknown vineyards and stay at a charming
and Breakfast. So from mountains, to wine country to
beachside villas, France is a favorite destination for
thousands of visitors all year long.
