60-second guide to France

in its own head

You cannot come to France and not fall in love. The cities, the food, the art, they make you do it.

but more realistically

When the French talk about love they mean it in its broadest sense. It's not only the kind you have for your partner or your friends, but the sort of gooey appreciation you have for a warm breakfast croissant, a sunset, a scenic drive or collection of art. If you go to France as a romantic cynic, you will not leave as one.

the vibe

In the cities, be cultured and look good while you're at it. But, if you're taking the hire car out to the countryside, expect the vibe to be traditional and rustic. Roll up your sleeves and get involved. You want an apple from that tree? Pick it yourself.

the natives

The French are a passionate bunch. Expect animated discussions and heated debate, but don't worry, they are far too refined to let it spill over into fisticuffs.

the weather

Their weather is a bit like ours, only better. Temperatures are generally hotter in the summer and the south, rainy and cooler to the north with a mixture in between. Take sunblock and an umbrella.

the local speciality

Duck's leg, or Confit de Canard is a classic French dish. Salt cured and then cooked in its own fat, this duck dish is rich and delicious. Not only is it widely available on restaurant menus, but it's also available in cans from the supermarket. Stock up and bring plenty home, it's expensive here.

the celebrity

Club DJ, David Guetta, Manchester City mid-fielder, Samir Nasri and chef, Jean-Christophe Novelli all come from France.

did you know?

Victor Hugo, the most well-known French writer and poet of the Romantic era has a street named after him in every city in France.
