If you thought Le Mans was a place where a famous race took place and nothing else, you’re in for a surprise, there is a gorgeous medieval town and plenty to see and do. We’ve checked out the best tours of France for 2019; spent the weekend in Nantes, a truly quirky and arty city and ski’d at Meribel. We totally fell in love with the wonderful art deco swimming pool museum of La Piscine in the north of France where we caught up with the architect (who also converted the Gare d’Orsay into the world’s favourite museum)
We talk to TV stars Dick and Angel of Escape to the Chateau to get their top tips for those who dream of their own escape.
2019 is a key year in the Loire Valley as 500 years of the French Renaissance will be celebrated with more than 500 events. It’s one place you really ought to pop on your bucket list – you’ll have a ball, literally if you choose, as the Chateau d’Amboise is holding two fabulous balls in its grand hall and they’re open to everyone.
There are wonderful recipes, useful guides, inspirational guides and some fabulous competitions including the chance to win a week in a gite in Carcassonne, ferry tickets, a row of vines in Provence and great books…
