Located pretty much directly south of Lyon via the A7, Grignan is easy to get to by car. A scant two hour, eighty kilometres drive will transport you from the lovely, but busy city of Lyon, to the tranquil world of Grignan, France. All the paths in Grignan lead to the castle which is located up, way on top of a rocky hill. The castle has loomed over the flat countryside since the 11th century, even if it was almost completely destroyed during the French Revolution. It has now been beautifully restored and is open to visitors year round with English language tours available during the months of July and August.

Located along the wild Atlantic Coast and encompassing some of the most beautiful scenery in France, Aquitaine holds an exclusive combination of archetypal activities that will appeal to both grown-ups and little ones. The “valley of 1000 castles” is without a doubt our favourite place in all of Aquitaine. Why? Simply because we feel it perfectly embodies what most people imagine the south west of France to be like: high-perched castles overlooking medieval villages that are flanked by vineyards and luxuriant gardens.

Most Saturdays and Sundays, towns around Paris host vide-greniers—which translates to the lovely expression “empty attic.” A vide-grenier is a knot of the old and the now useless, its customers made up of treasure-hunting antiquers, local families in search of an easy day out, and in our case, Canadian tourists looking for a day trip from Paris. It’s old copies of video games and vintage clothing, lawn mowers and handmade ceramics. Day trips from Paris are so easy to plan. There’s a tradition and rhythm to an outdoor French sale that residents adore and tourists miss. Don’t be that tourist!

Paris is one of the culinary capitals of the world, and “where to eat in Paris” is a hotly-debated subject amongst locals. France has one of the most celebrated food cultures on this planet. It’s also a hot spot for tourism: Paris is the third most visited city in the world, with 16 million tourists each year. There are hundreds of great bistros in Paris. Here are just a few, as recommended by Parisians themselves. Don’t forget to make reservations for all of these restaurants, since cheap and good eateries tend to get very, very busy in the City of Light.
