Things to Do When In France

France is romantic, peaceful, relaxing, vibrant, and all the things you’ll enjoy. Roaming around in France is a dream for many.

So when you are visiting the above amazing places, there are other things you can do.

1. Shopping

You simply cannot return from France without bags full of shopping. France has amazing taste in fashion, accessories, jewelry, and fine arts. Definitely visit local stores, markets, and malls to buy French fashion. 

2. Food

Try authentic French cuisine in local cafes and restaurants. The pastries and desserts in France are mouth watery.

Boeuf Bourguignon, Coq Au Vin, Potato Dauphinoise, and Cassoulet are some of the best dishes. Eat something new every day for a wholesome French cuisine experience. 

3. Stay in Villas

Instead of booking hotel rooms, try family villas. You’ll have a unique experience living in a French villa that’s as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside.

Book a suitable accommodation with ChicVillas and make your French retreat even special.
