Blog for France for best itineraries in France

Welcome to Blog for France !

I’m Karine, a French woman who lives in the city of  Toulouse in South West France and also the author of  Blog for France !

My first interests are food and travel. I travelled a lot in South America, in Asia, in Europe…

All the countries I visited were beautiful, interesting, endearing… but the country that I prefer is the place where I live : my sweet and greedy France !

With my blog for France, I would like to show you France as it really is, my authentic and beautiful France !

What is the purpose of  Blog for France ?

The mission of this blog is to invite you to travel in France giving you good advice, my own addresses, my tips and my favorites, smart and interesting driving tours in France

For me, travel is not only visiting a city, a monument or a church. To travel is also to discover a culture, gastronomy, wines, different lifestyles.

Who is Blog for France for ?

You are planning a trip to France ? Blog for France can help you !

You are going to France with a lot of money ? It’s perfect to visit France in the best conditions ! I’ll show you the best hotels and more… like My selection of 3 best hotels in Paris

You want to visit France but you don’t have a lot of money ?

It’s not a problem : I will tell you how to visit and enjoy France without much money !

For example, I published :

Why you should visit France ?

Imagine a coffee terrace in Montmartre, an afternoon to discover Impressionist paintings, a restaurant under the olive trees in a small village of Provence, a trip back to the Middle Ages in the castle of Carcassonne, a day in vineyards with tasting of Bordeaux wines… : Yes you are in France !

It’s easy to choose France as a travel destination. But the most complicated, or the most pleasant if you are on my blog (!!!), will be to choose between : Sea or mountain ? City or countryside ? Star restaurants or little neighborhood bistros ? Paris or Bordeaux ? 7 days or 2 weeks ? South of France with their small fortified villages or Brittany and its windy coast or Paris with its wonderful monuments or the French Riviera and its seaside resorts, Mont Blanc, Mont-St-Michel, the castles of the Loire … The list is infinite. So I stop here otherwise you will fall asleep !

My France also brings a mosaic of regions with marked cultural identities rich in know-how and traditions. Join the festivities that animate the small villages, meet the artisans and sit down to table, because the most delicious gastronomic specialties, including wines and cheeses, are waiting for you all over my country. You will also travel in France while eating and drinking !

Best places in France – My favorites

For best places to visit in France, first, I give you my own list and for each place, you can discover a special post with more informations and details…

Of course, my list has to include France’s capital city : PARIS. What would a stay in France be without a tour in Paris  (Montmartre, The  Eiffel Tower, the Champs Elysées, Notre dame…) ?

Then my favorites places are :

These places are not classified by order of my favorites because it is impossible for me to choose… And I am sure there are more beautiful places in France, but I have not visited all the places in France yet !
