The most charming places in France

When looking for what will most captivate our senses, there is nothing better than fresh snow on the Alps’ majestic peaks or the amazing emerald waters on a deserted Corsican beach. Sometimes, the beauty is as simple as the clear winter light, which falls gently on a house’s pastel facade in a village or even the sweet harmony of a majestic tower in a secluded place. The most dreamy places in France are presented in this list, for your post-covid trip, with Marseille’s pure aroma to guide you throughout your journey.

Plateau De Valensole, Provence

When it comes to lavender, the right time is everything: to experience the full beauty of the vast purple expanses with the intoxicating scent wafting through the atmosphere, visit it in June and July, when the flowers are full of bees. Explore lesser-known places like Sault or Forcalquier and make a stop at street vendors, where you will find honey and lavender products at the best prices.

Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, French Riviera

Hidden between Nice and Monaco, this secluded little gem is located on a beautiful, small peninsula and is much more than a luxury resort. In this quiet village, protected from the wind, with its lush vegetation, there is a wonderful, rocky path along the bright sea for explorers, as well as a national museum at Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild with impressive, exotic flowers.

Menton, French Riviera

Surrounded by mountains, this quiet town on the Italian border looks like vintage postage of “Dolce Vita”. The emerald beach, the cramped houses, the tons of sorbet ice cream and the baroque churches on the cobbled streets are just the beginning. At the end of the promenade, the Jean Cocteau Museum, designed by Ricciotti, shines in the sun like a white diamond, and you can get there after a stroll through the city’s tropical gardens and muskrat lemon groves.

Arles, Provence

Whether wandering on the Rhone banks or in the medieval alleys of the historic centre beyond the Roman arena, this city is unique. It looks like a painting by Van Gogh and combines ancient history with adventure, as in addition to the wetlands, you will find a refuge full of birds, where also free wild white horses roam.

Cape Corse, Corse

Less than an hour’s drive from the bustling port of Bastia, this wild peninsula of tiny fishing villages, towers and low sand dunes is a small seaside wonder. Get to Macinaggio and take the coastal path, which is wrapped around the rocks. There you will find sheep and cows grazing in the meadow, just behind the creeks of the emerald and turquoise sea, while the mountain slopes are covered with fragrant wildflowers, rosemary and thyme.

Megeve, French Alps

This luxurious, sunny resort was upgraded by Baroness Noemie de Rothschild a century ago to compete with St. Moritz and continues to attract affluent citizens looking for old-fashioned glamour on their vacation. Surrounded by enchanting peaks and stunning views of Mont Blanc, the nostalgic atmosphere of Megeve includes snowy pines, carriages and a picturesque cobbled square, and worth a visit in the summer when the hiking trails are full of wildlife.

But of course, we are talking about a resort, where all its magic unfolds in front of you during the winter months, where you can spend your time skiing on its snowy slopes and having fun in its modern facilities. Now with the company Erna Low, you can choose a complete accommodation package in this wide area of Mont Blanc, at affordable prices, to live the dream vacation you have been planning for a long time.
