Often described as the most romantic country in the world, France is famed for its beautiful cities, rolling countryside and exquisite cuisine. A land of vineyards, elegant chateaus, spectacular ski resorts and beach-lined Mediterranean coastline, this historic nation epitomises charming, cultural chic.
