Etretat cliffs – Haute Normandie

Located in the Seine-Maritime department, the Etretat cliffs have always inspired artists and in particular the painters Gustave Courbet and Claude Monet. The singular forms of the limestone cliffs throwing themselves into the sea, the narrow pebble beaches but also the greenery of the lawns which overlook them indeed create a unique landscape of its kind.

The Bay of Somme – Picardy

Extended over almost 70 km², the Baie de Somme is a real nature reserve of great ecological richness and in particular ornithological. Being part of the “club of the most beautiful bays in the world” alongside the Bay of Halong and the Bay of San Francisco, she also inspired many painters like Edgar Degas and Toulouse-Lautrec.

Mont Saint-Michel-Normandy

On the list of UNESCO World Heritage World Heritage, Mont Saint-Michel is the busiest tourist site in Normandy and one of the most popular in France. Erected on a rocky island in the heart of a magnificent bay, this site is one of the most emblematic of our country.

The Eiffel Tower – Paris

Built between 1887 and 1889 on the occasion of the Universal Exhibition in Paris, the Eiffel Tower was initially dismantled. Today considered the architectural symbol of France, it welcomes more than 7 million visitors each year. An essential if you go to Paris!

The Calanques de Marseille – Bouches du Rhône

Typical of the Mediterranean, the creeks are particular geological formations partly overwhelmed by the sea. It is in the Marseille region that you will find the most beautiful examples, and in particular the Calanque de Sormiou, the Calanque de Sugiton, or the Calanque de Morgiou. Ideal for discovering them? A boat trip from the old port of Marseille.

The Palace of Versailles – Paris region

Former residence of the kings of France and more particularly of Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI, the Château de Versailles is one of the most beautiful examples of architecture of the 17th and 18th centuries, and French gardens. Be sure to visit it if you are in the Paris region!

The Pilat dune – Gironde

Located at the entrance to the Arcachon basin, the Pilat dune is with its 110.9m highest dune in Europe. A true wonder of nature, it attracts nearly two million visitors each year.

The Agriates desert – Corsica

Stuck between the Mediterranean Sea on one side, and the Serra Di Tenda mountain, on the other, the Agriates desert is not desert at all! On the contrary, it is occupied by typically Mediterranean vegetation and shelters superb beaches and coves with translucent water. Located in northern Corsica, it is one of the most beautiful sites on the island!

Le Méandre de Queuille-Puy-de-Dôme

Perched at more than 250m above sea level, the town of Queuille offers a spectacular point of view on the winding river Sioule. This is one of the most frequently used images to represent the Auvergne region and you can easily understand why. Wow!

The ocher path – Roussillon

No need to cross the Atlantic to discover a canyon with red-orange shades … Located in Lubéron, the ocher path is a real geological curiosity and offers walkers an exceptional setting for hiking.
