Alsace

 
Alsace The Alsace has been popular with invading armies and tourists alike. Well, we have to admit the area is extremely pretty, the white wines are great and the food is delicious. Strasbourg is the most important city and one of the most beautiful cities of France. Located on the banks of the Rhine just a bridge away from Germany, you will surely appreciate the mixture of French and German styles; Strasbourg combines the best of both worlds. From Strasbourg you can make numerous day trips to visit the smaller towns and cities: Ungersheim, Riquewihr, Colmar. They are all as charming as can be. A drive through the countryside and a stop at some of the castles where you can taste and buy wines directly from the Chate...
 

Annecy

 
Annecy The picturesque Annecy, known for its castle that dominates the town, is located at the northern top of Lake Annecy and surrounded by snow-topped mountains. The town often serves as a welcome stop before hiking or skiing activities in the nearby Mont Blanc area or travels to Swiss or Italy. The castle, with its several towers, is a reminder of the glorious structure the military fort must have had when it was constructed in the eleventh century by the Prince of Savoy. Downtown Annecy and the Lake are connected by a canal that winds through the cobbled streets with the red-roofed houses. The terraces are there, the Bridge of the Lovers, the setting sun.... no wonder they call it the Venice of the North. In the old p...
 

Ceillac

 
Ceillac This is one of the first villages reached in Queyras. There is a ski resort but it has been kept separate from and above the main village.

Flowers are fabulous, both in the area immediately around the village and in the Alpine pastures above....
 

Corsica

 
Corsica Although Corsica is still ruled by France, one can hardly deny the Italian atmosphere the island exhales. The island is, except for a few cities on the coasts, such as Ajaccio and Bastia , not densely populated. As a result, Corsica still exists of vast areas of unspoiled scenery. Hence why its inhabitants (round and about a quarter of a million) call it the Island of Beauty to which you can probably only agree when you see the versatile character composed of lakes and snow-capped mountains. Choose for yourself whether you want to visit the olive trees and vineyards, the little white towns in the countryside, see the cultural heritage of Napoleon in Ajaccio or explore the unspoilt snow-capped mountains from central ...
