France is famous for so many reasons and bing here I can see why. So many terms in English for all that is "chic" and refined come from the French. Beautiful design everywhere you look. History at every turn. And food that might as well be art. It's not cheap but it is France and a default stop on any Euro trip.Recommended for:

When it comes to countries where you might accidently fall foul of the law, I’m sure liberal old France doesn’t factor very highly in the public imagination. But although I know more people who have been deported from Uzbekistan (don’t forget to keep your hotel chitties!), I’m rather more concerned with the way France seems to have the presidential system of a banana republic. In short, you can go to jail for insulting the president. Yes. Jail. So, for example, if I was to write here that François Hollande’s mother was a hamster and his father smelt of elderberries, the next time I pop through the Channel Tunnel, I could be arrested. Good job that was just *an example*, eh?Recommended for:

I would love to spend a year living in France and learning the language. Several of my closest friends are French or speak French fluently. The food is fantastic, the language itself is pleasing to the ears, and the rural and urban landscape is amazing.Recommended for:

As a long-time Francophile, it would be impossible for me not to love France. The country's cooking is amazing! Julia Child did not get all excited for nothing, folks. The culture is something I fell in love with during my first visit and brings me back as frequently as possible. From the chateaus in the Loire Valley to the metropolitan and impeccable Paris, France has a bit of beauty for anyone.Recommended for:

France sometimes gets a bad rap in the U.S. and I hope that continues so there are fewer American tourists clogging the country up. France is a truly wonderful country to visit. The culture and language are beautiful,and the food is amazing almost anywhere you go. Paris is one of the top draws to the country and with good reason, but don't miss Provence, Normandy, Brittany, and the Loire valley. Truly getting to know France is impossible in one trip, and really would require living there for several years. But it is worth trying

This is one of our favorite countries to visit. The french people are friendlier then you think if you just learn a few words and are polite about it. The food is usually terrific and the sites are some of the best.
Not to boast is to say that Europe is the birth-place of the occidental culture. Hardly I can recommend one country. In every little town you'll meet a "point of distinction", a "master piece" that you will never forget, and it will remains in your heart the life long. But the most complete will be Italy, France, and Spain; only thous three will need a life-long trip to enjoy them in sufficience.
My feelings are mixed when it comes to France. I hated Paris but loved Nice. I would love to go back to the wine country to do some tastings. Overall the food wasn't spectacular but then again I didn't go to the 5 star restaurants. I wasn't super thrilled the 2 times I was in France.

Paris - the capital - of course is great on its own. But also the countryside between Paris and the South with its beautiful wineries is gorgeous. For chilling out the South with its wonderful beaches and little towns is just great! If you are interested in bicycling - I heard there are wonderful routes you can cycle in the South of France.
Of course the food in France is wonderful and beautiful too!
We were looking for a really relaxed holiday and stayed at a 4 bedroom converted barn in La Manche Normandy. It had been converted and was just so comfortableand spacious. Great location with so many things to do and attractions nearby. We will definately be going there again. Details are on www.frenchcountrycottage.info

Where else can I find crepes nearly on every corner?!?!?! The food is great even if the hospitality can very depending on where you go. My one suggestion is to know how to truly speak french before trying to attempt it. You were warned.
