France is home to many beautiful small towns, often with cobbled streets, picturesque squares, and historic architecture. Many of these towns are surrounded by rolling hills, vineyards, and lush countryside, making them ideal for a peaceful getaway. Many of these towns also offer a variety of activities, from shopping and dining to outdoor activities and cultural attractions.


The village of Cassis is the very essence of Provence. A former fishing port, the town is now largely supported by tourism as well as its vineyards. The picturesque little streets here lead you to the array of boutiques lining them. Many a traveler is seen taking a leisurely stroll around the port, between the restaurant terraces and the luxurious boats. As you make your way towards the two beaches, the sandy la Grande Mer and the pebbled le Bestouan, pause for a game of pétanque, Marseilles’ much loved game of bowls. If you find yourself tempted to take a guided tour of the Calanques by sea then jump right in. The walks around the Calanques in Cassis are truly unforgettable.

Gli stretti edifici baschi del 600 fanno ricordare case con strutture in legno a vista bianche e rosse. Sulla banchina o nel centro storico si può fare la conoscenza di prodotti regionali o apprendere nell' 'Ecomusée' la storia e le tradizioni della regione basca. La spiaggia è apprezzata soprattutto dalle famiglie, dato che l'insenatura è protetta dalle onde troppo alte.

Most well-known for being the inspiration behind French impressionist Claude Monet's iconic series Water Lilies, the idyllic commune of Giverny exists quietly along the banks of the Seine. A charmingly rural vibe surrounds this village in Normandy, where misty mornings shroud Medieval churches, and a canopy of weeping willows and drooping flowers adorn the unforgettable bridge from Monet's masterpiece. The highlight of the village culminates at the Maison et Jardins de Claude Monet, the house that served as the artist's residence from 1883, until his death in 1926. Hundreds of impressionism aficionados flock to the crumbling mansion and its surrounding floral gardens for a glimpse of this once-thriving art colony. While Giverny's genteel landscape stirred the strings of Monet's artistic heart, it also encouraged a bevy of American impressionists like Willard Metcalf and Louis Ritman to visit this French commune for inspiration. The Museum of Impressionism that opened in 1992 is another main attraction in town, and traces the beginnings of this 19th-century art movement. Giverny thrives on tourism that surrounds its impressionist origins.
