|. . . tradition and modernity handled with style and self-confidence
What European country other than France could draw north and south together so effortlessly? In France, the Mediterranean, Celtic and Saxon influences merge into a single, exuberant cultural statement.
And yet, the regions take a pride in their own distinctive traditions with the same self-confidence that they give to their Frenchness. In food especially, they celebrate the differences. Through glorious wines and exquisite cheeses they assert their individuality and their unwillingness to decline into uniformity.
Old hands return because their beloved France is always unexpected, never fully explored. Each valley is as unique as the food it produces. Holidays to France are just . . . wonderful.
