Eiffel Tower the symbol of Paris

I believe some visitors still feel the same way as the writer Guy de Maupassant who famously always ate on the Eiffel Tower as it was the only place he couldn’t see what he felt was a monstrosity.

Dramatic view of Les Dentelles de Montmirail

We took the car as far as we could above the wine village of Gigondas before the road met the impassable Dentelles de Montmirail.

Canet Plage was where we first visited France. We arrived in cold late spring weather and took our first steps of discovery around the port at Canet. We grew to love those walks into town or by crossing the harbour by small ferry. The sounds from the tightly packed boats were relaxing – gentle soundsContinue reading “Canet Plage the scene my First French Travel Book”

HΓ΄tel Restaurant les Templiers Collioure France

On this mild clear evening the sun is going down, the scene is enlightened by the lights of the harbour front cafΓ©s and bars and the spot lights focused on Collioure’s church, Notre-Dame-des-Anges, a former converted lighthouse.
