French Rivers

A Delightful Feast for the Senses

Follow the brushstrokes of master painters, sample the delicacies of the Normandy region and fall in love with the city of love – Paris. Join us in France and experience the most charming rivers the Grande Nation has to offer between Provence and Normandy!

France - where an inexhaustible wealth of nature, culture, and lovable “joie de vivre” unfolds before you in all directions. The Seine stretches its winding arm from romantic Paris to the robust and powerful Atlantic. On the banks of the Rhône and Saône, seemingly endless lavender fields push up against the horizon, alongside the winding alleys of picturesque villages and magnificent palaces in the South of France.

World-famous wine regions

Some of the most beautiful and well-known wine-growing areas in the region are to be found up river in the northern part of the River Saône. Visit, for example, the stunningly beautiful Mâcon region, known for its Mediterranean ambience and outstanding Chardonnay. You’ll be simply enchanted by the magnificent view of the surrounding vineyards and their lovely chateaux and castles! Travel a little further north, to the no less charming area around the wine towns of Pommard, Meursault, Chassagne and Puligny, and you’ll come to Beaune, the ‘wine capital’ of Burgundy, whose numerous sites are just waiting for you to come and discover – and, it goes without saying, an essential part of an excursion to the most beautiful wine region in France is also tasting a fine wine or two!

Avignon – French jewel in the south

The really beautiful city of Avignon, with its winding narrow streets and numerous palaces and churches, is to be found in Provence in the south of France. Standing imperiously right by the banks of the Rhône is the imposing Papal Palace dating from the 14th century, which was used as the residence for various popes and antipopes between 1335 and 1430. Like the rest of Avignon’s historic Old Town, the Papal Palace is today also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is considered to be one of the most impressive Gothic buildings in the world.

Monet’s magnificent garden

Monet’s extensive garden, laid out and lovingly maintained by the “Father of Impressionism” himself, served as a source of inspiration for the artist. This is where over 500 examples of his fascinating later works were created, including the famous water-lily pond and Japanese bridge.
