My favourite place

France! Despite many travels to exotic destinations, I’m always drawn back to France. Whether it’s the long, untamed beaches of the Atlantic coast, city breaks (Bordeaux and Paris are my favourites!), its historic chateaus, meandering rivers or rural village life, it’s got everything. And, not to mention the wineries, restuarants and long summers – what’s not to love?!
