The country of France is considered to be the foremost tourist destination for the entire world, and this reputation is one hundred percent deserved. Romance, rural allure, city life, and architectural wonders all combine to make France an ideal destination for all vacation rental guests. There are many different regions and influences that contribute towards making the country of France a veritable cornucopia of tempting attractions. The country can be geographically divided into three major categories; Paris and the surrounding area, rural France, the French Riviera/coastal region.
The striking image of the Eiffel Tower is one of the easily recognizable national symbols in the world, and the city that it calls home is just as well-known. Paris is a popular destination for romantics and sightseers from around the world, and with good reason. This world class vacation destination offers guests of French vacation homes the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Champs de’ Elysees. All of this, combined with exquisite French cuisine, a romantic atmosphere, and even a Disneyland, makes Paris the number one vacation destination of the world.
Rural France actually comprises the majority of the nation, including Brittany, Normandy (of World War II fame), Picardy, Loraine, Champagne, and Burgundy. Each of these regions has developed a unique culture that sets it apart from the rest of the nation and makes it particularly appealing to guests of French vacation rentals. There are ruins from Roman and Celtic incursions, curious historical tidbits, vast tracts of farmland, and beautiful scenery; every one of which would be worthy of an entire vacation in its own right.
The French Riviera, like its Italian counterpart, is filled with the typical attractions of a resort town, combined with museums and small idyllic villages. Clearly, the beauty of the seaside is hard to match, but the appeal of this part of France is not limited to beaches and sunshine. There are historical World War II sites, ancient cultural landmarks, art collections, and even vineyards to pique the tastes of any French vacation rental guest.
