France is allegedly the most visited country in the world. There certainly is plenty about France that is divine, from Mont Blanc, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Louvre, through de Beauvoir, Debussy, and the Tour Eiffel, to the roaming countryside of Provence or the wilds of delta of the Camargue.
While on a luxury holiday in France what could be more heavenly than camembert washed down with award winning wine or Champagne at a top restaurant.
The French hotels, be it boutique or of the more well-known name variety offer an unsurpassed style and luxury.
For a unique combination of art and cuisine, head to Mougins, a place with more gastronomy per square mile than any other area in France and home to Picasso and Man Ray. From there, it is a short hop to Grasse, the home of perfume and to the mountains and stunning scenery of Haute Provence. Alternatively, visit the nearby resorts of the Cote d’Azur to the south.
Then there is Corsica, described by Balzac as ‘a French island basking in the Italian sun’ and offering a wildly different range of magical rugged and lounge-lizard style experiences.
The French invented a term for their totally seductive lifestyle, ‘Douce France’ (Sweet France), which one will find oneself using often choosing a luxury holiday in this enchanting country.
