The Photogenic Beauty of France in 30 Photos
TRAVEL FRANCE IN PHOTOS
France is a country of diverse beauty, culture and natural wonders. Sure it’s home to all the goodies like croissants, macaroons and the Eiffel Tower but as someone who prefers the outdoors, it’s incredible to see just how many variations of ‘joli’ France can deliver.
Since moving here in 2014, I’ve been continuously wowed by the surprises that exist within the landscapes of not only Provence where I live, but all over France.
While most people visiting will get to see the hot spots of Paris, perhaps Nice and the Cote d’Azur, there really is so much more of France to explore.
Hidden in the mountains are gorges with sparkling teal water fresh from the Alps and caves with stalactites and stalagmites.
On the coast there’s the rocky cliffs of Calanques rising from the Mediterranean, colourful facades of fishing ports and cobbled streets of medieval villages.
To celebrate Bastille Day this year I’ve put together a collection of my favourite 30 photographs taken throughout France. I’ve listed location details in the captions below each image so if you happen to find yourself in the area, you can go in search of these places for yourself.
