Les Plus Beaux Villages de France (the Most Beautiful Villages in France) is an association set up to protect and promote the heritage of the most beautiful villages in France. The association, which began in 1982, now includes 156 French villages spread over 14 regions and 69 departments. 

One of Paris' most iconic attractions, the Eiffel Tower, is well known for its long queues.  As Paris' most visited attraction, the Eiffel Tower attracts millions of visitors each year.  To make your visit more enjoyable, I'm sharing some handy things to know before your visit the Eiffel Tower.

BoysEiffel150Paris is the ideal destination for a family holiday as it offers plenty to do for the whole family. Perhaps surprisingly, many of the city's big name attractions, even the famous museums, really appeal to kids, and they'll get just as much enjoyment from climbing the Eiffel Tower or getting up close and personal to the gargoyles on Notre Dame as Mum and Dad will.

At 25 kilometres long and 700 metres deep in places, the gorge is named after the River Verdon which flows through it.  One of the most dramatic natural sights in Europe, the Gorges du Verdon passes through mostly uninhabitated country between Moustiers-Ste-Marie and Castellane.


When visiting a region for the first time it's only natural that you'll want to see the most popular attractions. The Languedoc region of southern France offers visitors the chance to see and do so many wonderful things that you'll definitely run out of time no matter how long you stay!  Here's my list of 10 'must do' things to enjoy whilst holidaying in the region.  They're in no particular order and are just a taste of what's on offer in this delightful corner of France.

Where should I stay in Paris? It's a question that I've been asked many, many times over the years, especially during my time as a travel consultant, and whilst there is no right or wrong answer, there are some things you should take into consideration before booking your hotel or apartment. These include your budget and accessibility to what you plan to see and do during your stay in Paris.

Whenever I am planning a visit to Paris, the Paris Pass is one of the first things I purchase.  The Paris Pass is a sightseeing and attraction pass that not only saves you money, it saves you time as well as it provides 'skip the line entry' to many of Paris' famous sights and attractions.  Even after multiple visits to Paris, there are always attractions I want to visit again and ones I haven't yet visited, so a Paris Pass is a must have.
