region of France
de la Loire region of France
The region of Franche-Comté
this area of France lies around and to the southeast of Paris. It
includes the valleys of the
Seine, the Loire and the Saône. Hiring a
gite or a villa in the Paris area can be an interesting alternative to
a hotel in Paris, specially if there is a railway station nearby. A
gite can also be an option for families wanting to visit Disneyland as
part of a French holiday.
Burgundy is largely an area
of hills and valleys, famous for its vineyards, mostly concentrated in
the south and around Chablis in the north. Burgundy is also the Morvan
hills, with their spruce forests and hiking trails. Though culminating
at less than 1000 metres, these are the closest mountains to Paris and
are consequently popular with hikers and nature-lovers.
Franche Comté is made up of the Jura mountains,
1500 metres on the Swiss border, and the rural hill country of the
Doubs and Saone river basins. It is one of France's great underrated
holiday areas, an area with fine countryside and plenty to see and do.
In summers when much of France is dry and parched, the Franche
comté generally remains a reasonably green and pleasant land..
