« Dieu a inventé le Parisien pour que les étrangers ne puissent rien comprendre aux Français. »
– Alexandre Dumas –
Are you dreaming of a cultural and urban vacation, while your partner likes historical visits and your kids are calling loud and clear for a seaside vacation? France is the ideal compromise. Rich in the variety of its landscapes, France has a wealth of treasures to discover and explore.
Whether it’s Paris, whose many options require a stay of several days…or the Loire Valley with its sumptuous castles…or Corsica, a veritable island of beauty, France is a country steeped in history and liveliness.
Throughout the territory, young and old alike can enjoy a wide range of activities. Paris has numerous parks and old amusement rides, such as at the Jardin d’Acclimatation, where everything is conducive to adventure, and magnificent museums including the Musée en Herbe, where all the works are hung at children’s level. Outside of Paris, the Canal du Midi can be explored by bicycle, while the Camargue is explored on horseback or by barge. During winter, the resorts of the Alps and the Pyrenees welcome skiers and snowboarders, who are replaced by hikers during the summer. In the Arcachon basin, the ascent of the Dune of Pyla (the largest dune in Europe) is breathtaking.
Every French person will tell you: In France, you’ll eat better than anywhere else in the world. Whether you go to the Bordeaux region to explore the vineyards or enjoy canelés and macarons, to Marseille to delight your senses with dandelions and bouillabaisse or to Brittany for a crepe dinner, there’s something for everyone. France will definitely leave you wanting more!
The Canal Saint Martin is definitely one of our favorite places in Paris and a very kids-friendly, bohemian area.
On Sundays, the streets along the canal are only open to pedestrians and cyclists and become a communal backyard for the neighborhoods and a perfect spot for a relaxing Sunday afternoon walk…
We know, we know … it’s not really latest news!
Nevertheless, it is always fun to stroll through Paris and hunt for some space invaders. The Space Invaders app was released in 2014 and is updated regularly…
