–The pic­tures que beauty of France has many other charms that de­light a visi­tor

France has long since en­joyed a rep­u­ta­tion of be­ing one of the world’s most so­phis­ti­cated hol­i­day des­ti­na­tions. There is a lot packed into this one coun­try - ar­chi­tec­tural mas­ter­pieces, works of art, mu­se­ums and nat­u­ral land­scapes, fine wine, a rich and unique culi­nary cul­ture that dif­fers from re­gion to re­gion and a his­tory that dates far be­yond the Ro­mans.

It is with good rea­son that France is eyed by the rich and fa­mous as an ideal get­away for a lux­u­ri­ous va­ca­tion. The chic cap­i­tal, Paris, with its el­e­gant Parisian mo­ments will have you fall in love with the city, the tours of the chateaux scat­tered over Loire Val­ley will have you mes­merised. Sen­sa­tional coastal views on the French Riviera, glitzy day trips to glam­ourous Cannes, Monaco, and St-Tropez, road trips along Champagne are just some of the well-known high­lights of a lux­u­ri­ous va­ca­tion in France. But there is a lot more to France than wine, high-end shop­ping, par­ties on yachts and road trips. The lux­ury spa ho­tel Le Choiseul in Am­boise of­fers 18th cen­tury build­ings to re­side in, com­plete with a pool and caves. Chateau d’Isen­bourg, a 4-star ho­tel in a charm­ing chateau nes­tled amid vine­yards in Col­mar, of­fers choco­late mas­sages at the spa that are a favourite with the wealthy trav­el­ers of world. Saint Malo, a gor­geous beach city of­fers vis­i­tors lux­ury in the form of Casino Bar­rière. HNI trav­ellers head to the Miche­lin star restau­rant, Chris­tian Éti­enne for au­then­tic Proven­cal cui­sine in Avi­gnon. Monte Carlo Beach ho­tel pam­pers guests with its own wa­ter sports clubs with a pri­vate beach, beach tents, and an ozone fil­tered sea wa­ter pool. Nice is a great des­ti­na­tion for those who en­joy art, the world’s best high-end shop­ping can be done at Lyon and ad­ven­ture seek­ers can head to An­necy for some plush ski­ing re­sorts.

France se­duces the pleasure seeker with its chateaux, vine­yards, snowy slopes of the French Alps, brunch par­ties in the mid­dle of bright blue wa­ters, road trips along ex­pan­sive land­scapes, café ter­races, vil­lage mar­kets, Coq au vin, Cabernet Sauvi­gnon and casi­nos.

Speak­ing of casi­nos, what’s a greater ad­ven­ture than a gam­ble based on pure luck? The lux­ury seeker is in for a thrill of a life­time with the casi­nos in France. Read on to find out more.
