What really matters is culture and art de vivre. In France, living is an art form. Togetherness, conversation and the act of sharing is central to life everywhere. Dive into France’s treasure trove and learn something new. Visit amazing museums, admire chateaux and ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, follow in the footsteps of artists and writers. Savour France’s incomparable cuisine and world-class wine. Reconnect with friends around a table with a beautiful view, tasting classic dishes given modern twists by artistic chefs. Catch a concert or exhibition; pause for a picnic in the vineyards or a coffee in the square. It’s all about simple pleasures – especially when they’re shared.
