France is the largest country in Europe

The country makes up one fifth of the European Union. It also has 3000 km of coastline, large mountains and beautiful countryside.




The weather in the north of France is similar to Britain but in the South is much warmer. French people are very passionate about French food, French sports, French art; they are very enthusiastic about most things they do.

France is known for its wide selection of bars, cafes and nightclubs. You will find live rock, jazz and other types of entertainment such as theatre, opera and concerts.  No matter what your taste, there’s a range of things to do, depending on the thickness of your wallet. Shopping is also very big in France. Paris boasts some of the world’s best department stores, where visitors can see the latest trends in designer fashion and even attend free fashion shows. The French love to dress up and keep there voices down, it tends to be other tourists that do all the stumbling and shouting, on a night out.
