France offers mountain ranges, coastlines, cities with a rich cultural heritage, châteaux (castles) and vineyards. Every region of France offers its own unique culture, food and ambience. The French are fiercely and deservedly proud of their country’s rich cultural, educational and political heritage. France has had a turbulent history characterized by successive revolutions but at every stage it has been at the forefront of European development.
