First tourist destination in the world - cock-a-doodle-doo! - France attracts and charms more than 80 million foreign visitors every year. The American statesman, Thomas Jefferson, once said: "Every man has two countries, his own and France.

When you are lucky enough to live in France, why not put yourself in the shoes of a tourist and discover the 551,000 km² of land that is as diverse as it is endearing. From Mont Saint-Michel to the Eiffel Tower, from the Mediterranean coast to the vineyards of Burgundy, the 13 regions of France are teeming with natural, cultural, heritage and gastronomic treasures. This mosaic, in turn synonymous with clichés (Parisian romanticism) or fantasy (the Ile Penotte district in the Vendée) represents an unparalleled diversity that will delight the whole family and all desires.

So Pyrenees, Normandy, Languedoc? We leave the choice (cornelian!) to you.
