Courchevel

 
Courchevel Courchevel is a big ski area located in the French Alps. As part of the 3Valley Ski area it is one of the largest ski centres in Europe. Its runs range from the easy introduction of the green to the most challenging of black runs. There is plenty here for all levels of ability whether you are on a board or skies. Accommodation is good and the food excellent in this three level township. 1550 is smaller but cheaper and has the advantage of being the end of the tobogan run which is great way to end the day. 1850 is the posh end of the resort with more hotels bars and entertainment but you are paying for all that in the prices. Stay in 1550 its less busy and when you want the nightlife hop on the free bus ...

Meribel

 
Meribel Meribel was founded by Scotsman Colonel Peter Lindsay in 1938 when he built the first lift (a 31-seater fixed rope sled that was installed above Les Allues). His aim was to create a purpose built ski resort, which remained faithful to the mountains that surrounded it. Though Meribel has grown into one of the great ski resorts and is at the heart of the largest and, for many, the finest ski area in the world, it has remained faithful, to this day, to Peter Lindsay's aims. All the buildings in the town are constructed in the traditional Savoyarde style from wood and stone, making Meribel one of the most attractive ski resorts in France. There is something for everyone in Mribel, convivial bars and every type of r...
 

Queyras

 
Queyras The Queyras Regional Natural Park is south of Grenoble and Briancon and to the far east of France bordering on Italy. It enjoys a micro-climate of its own and has sun for over 300 days in a year. It is much less frequented and somewhat lower than the better known areas further north in Savoie and Haut-Savoie but it is extremely beautiful with some of the best Alpine flower meadows in France. Walking up towards Monte Viso (in Italy) from the far east part of the area, you will be unlucky if you dont see a number of marmots and hear their piercing whistle....

Normandy and Brittany

 
Normandy and Brittany Normandy is a very beautiful part of France that has lots to offer to the visitor. Old towns, sandy beaches, the Mont-Saint-Michel, they are all there. Rouen, the capital, is a very beautiful old town. To explore it well you would need at least two days. Giverny is a small town. What brings you here is the gardens of the French painter Monet. If you have some knowledge of his paintings a walk through the gardens is great: you see impressionist paintings alive and all! Normandy is also famous for its apple brandy called Calvados. A visit to a cellar to taste a few of these wines is recommended. Honfleur is one of the most pretty harbour towns imaginable. It's been a long time favourite with professional and no...
 

Bayeux

 
Bayeux With 15,000 inhabitants Bayeux is just a small town, although it is the capital of the Bessin region. The main reason to come here is the world famous Bayeux Tapestry. Famous all over the world, the Bayeux Tapestry is in fact a XIth century linen hanging, embroided with various colored wools. The impressive size of this tapestry - 70m long and 0.50m high - along with its considerable artistic and historical merits, make it a unique and worldly renowned masterpiece. Similar to a picture book, it shows through successive images the Conquest of England by William, Duke of Normandy, who became William the Conqueror, King of England, after the famous battle of Hastings in 1066. The beautiful work of this embroidery (pro...
