France Countryside – Make You Forget Eiffel Tower

1 December 2008 2 Comments

Did I mention my plans to visit the Europeon countries before, yes I did probably! Sitting down in the evening, I was thinking what all to check out coming summer. France being the closest one to United Kingdom, it’s on top of my list following Austria, Switzerland, Germnay, Italy and so on.

What comes to your mind, when you think about France? Eiffel tower, right! Nothing was different for me, until I somehow came across the countryside of France.

After seeing the picture of Gordes village above, I can claim that the villages in France are so pleasant and picturesque parts of the country, specially in Luberon region; anyone would forget the world famous Eiffel tower. Well, I would say it’s not the right comparison, but still you got my feelings, isn’t it! I cannot wait to go, visit these villages and relax for a while.

My upcoming visit would be the first one to visit, and I have start gathering the information already. You must have guessed it by now looking at the website I referred to, Francethisway.com. As you are aware of, you would get to know some of the best travel resources here – and those would be tried and tested by myself. It’s a fact that I never thought of visiting France countryside until I visited this website. Now, I am thinking more about villages in France than Eiffel tower.

    I couldn’t agree more. Whilst I like Paris there is so much more to France.

    If you get chance to head south then go to the Languedoc region. It’s not as chic as the more (in)famous Provence but is cheaper to visit and just as interesting.

    If you want to get some ideas please have a look at the French section of my blog.

    Enjoy your trip!
