France boasts the most varied natural environment of any country in Europe; it varies from the lush agricultural countryside of Normandy and Brittany, or the rolling prairies of Champagne or Beauce, to Alpine peaks, northern spruce forests, the dry hinterland of Provence, the steppe-like plateaux of the Causses, some excellent beaches on the French Riviera, the Atlantic coast and the island of Corsica, wide possibilities for winter sports , most notably in the Alps and the Pyrenees , and a rich culture with food and wines that are among the most celebrated in the world.
With over 18,000 hotels and over 800,000 beds, France has more space than any other country in the world outside the USA offering high quality of service. France’s hotels vary from the five-star hotels such as Fouquet’s and the Hôtel Crillon in Paris, or the Majestic in Cannes, to rundown 0-star hotels in the side-streets of provincial towns or suburbs.
