Being born in France and being there for years as a child didn’t take any of the charm or beauty away from this vacation. This is a map of our travels and the names of the places we visited. Below you’ll find pictures and commentary.

France

Here are photos that correspond with each visit and below the gallery is a more complete explanation.

Paris

During our quick stay in Paris (approx. a day and a half) we were able to visit the Eiffel Tower, Sacré-Cœur, Notre Dame, Le Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées and Place de la Concorde. It was extremely efficient and cost effective to take the Metro from one location to the next. We did have someone with us that knew Paris well so we didn’t have to fumble trying to plan our routes but even without knowing Paris, it is moderately easy to get around. With a little help from the weather and a bit of luck we were even able to get to the top floor of the Eiffel Tower with very little wait. When people think it’s going to rain, they shy away from visiting it so you could save yourself hours in line by choosing the right day and time. We stayed in Paris in a tiny apartment that we booked through AirBNB which worked out just fine and was much cheaper than booking a hotel. Check it out here.

Normandy

The picture you see of Normandy is a tiny village called Villeray where my grandfather lived and I spent many childhood summers. The castle in the photo is the Château de Villeray which is now a hotel and spa.

Rhone-Alpes

This region of France is one of the most beautiful and fruitful in France. Stunning mountain vistas and endless vineyards on hillsides are picture perfect and have lots of tastings called ‘demonstrations’. This is also where some of the worlds best chocolatiers operate and where truffles are grown.

Pont-En-Royans

A charming little village with an incredible riverside view of cliffside houses built right into the rock. Take a short walk around the village and you will up at one of its many ice cream vendors to help cool down during the hot summer months

Cabris

A tiny little village with nothing to do except for admire the views. If you are staying in Peymeinade I would recommend taking a taxi to the top and walking down through the pedestrian trails.

Nice

Nice is a beautiful and classic city in France. The main courtyard is impressive and so Apis the water display in the centre. Transportation is great and simple and keep an eye out for the grassy railroad tracks as under them flows a covered up river meant to keep everyone connect.

Cannes

Everyone knows Cannes is the film capital of the world but most people don’t know that it is also a city of beautiful beaches and great wealth.

Monaco

The richest tiny country in the world, Monaco is filled with luxurious cars, stores, beautiful women and giant yachts from oil rich Arabic countries. The amount of money here will make you sick.

Eze

While the exotic garden was like every front yard here in Phoenix filled with cacti and spiky plants, the view is absolutely spectacular. The tiny village is filled with art and tourism shops and a few nice places to grab some refreshments.

Tresserre

A small little village less than 20 miles from the beach and from Spain. I loved the wild almonds and blackberries growing along the roads and beautiful scenic views of vineyards and lush green hills.

St. Martin du Canigou

This incredible monastery built on a rock face in the mountains is simply breathtaking and truly a wonder. A mildly difficult hour long hike is undoubtedly worth the reward.
