Six Beautiful Villages In France To Visit This Fall
When most people think of France, they usually think of Paris. However, there is much more to France than Paris. The beauty and heart of France lies within its lovely villages away from the big cities. I would like to take this opportunity to tell about 5 beautiful French villages that you need to see at least once in a lifetime.
is a beautiful French village located in the South of France in the Provence- Alpes-côte-d’Azur region. With its historical old houses and narrow streets, Ménerbes offers a serene living environment. Enjoy breathtaking views and landscapes as well as authentic Provincial French dishes.
Les Anses d’Arlets
This small fishing town is located in Martinique in the Outre-Mer region. I vacationed there last month and although the island was under some strict restrictions due to the current pandemic, I managed to get the best out of my trip. In 2020, this French village was voted second most beautiful villages of France. Although Martinique is located about 6850 kilometers from France by flight, there are regular commercial flights that leave from Paris Orly Airport to the small Caribbean island of close to 400 000 inhabitants. Do you enjoy kayaking, warm springs, gorgeous beaches and fresh local seafood dishes and nature? Well this village right here will not leave you indifferent.
Saint-Bertrand-de-Comminges located in the Pyrenées in the Occitanie region is an old fortified medieval village rich in history. While there partake in outing activities such as trekking. Visit old archeological sites while enjoying the gothic and contemporary artistic scenery of this old town.
Aubeterre-sur-Dronne located in the South West of France in the Nouvelle Aquitaine region has been listed as one of the “most beautiful villages” of France. If you enjoy country living, camping, canoeing and long walks along the Dronne river, this will be the right spot for you.
Giverny located in northern France in the Normandy region attracts many tourists visiting Paris. The famous French impressionist Claude Monet worked and lived there from 1883 until his death in 1926.
Keep in mind that although you can travel to some of these regions by train or plane from Paris, you may have to rent a car to continue your trip to some of these villages.
Last but not least id Dieppe. I recently visited this seaside town and it was all worth the trip. Located 2 hours away from Paris by car and by train, Dieppe is easily accessible fby public transportation for those interested in skipping the busy streets of Paris for a more relax, less crowded and peaceful destination. The town has a rich maritim history that you can discover at the Château Museum of Dieppe.
All cities mentioned are accessible by train or by flights from Paris. To book your train ticket, visit France’s Official Railway website here. To travel to Martinique, book your trip on Air France, Air Caraibes and Corsair. There are also flights leaving from the US from airports such as JFK in New York City, Miami International Airport and Luis Munoz Airport in San Juan with American Airlines.
Fares are cheaper in the fall. If you plan to travel by train from Paris make sure you book your train ticket at least 3 months before your trip to save money. For flights from Paris or the US, the sooner you book, the more money you save.
