We are overjoyed, after receiving the 'Best Honeymoon Destination-France' by Travel + Leisure in 2016 and being the Runner-up to 'Favourite Overseas City – Paris' for the Reader's Travel Awards 2016 by Condé Nast Traveller India, this year's 'Best Destination for Indulgence' award by Lonely Planet India is our third win! On this special occasion, here are 10 reasons why France must always take priority on your bucket-list!
1.France gave the world the sparkling bubbly - champagne!
2.Shopping at the Champs-Élysées in Paris, for it is the most beautiful avenue in the world, particularly during Christmas.
3.Cannes- the undisputed kingpin of Hollywood stardom, the one place to see suave men in tuxedos and beautiful women in Balmain, Gaultier and Dior step onto the red carpet during the film festival. Glamour everywhere!
4.Live the high-life with the jetsetters in the super-stylish Saint Tropez and the jazzy Juan-Les-Pins.
5.Feel on top of the world, literally, at the highest mountain of the French Alpes- the Mont Blanc in Chamonix.
6.Standing in the blooming lavender fields in Luberon, Provence with a scent that encapsulates and scenery that will remain etched in your memory forever.
7.Watching the arcade wing of Château de Chenonceau in the morning mist over the river Cher in the Loire Valley.
8.The world's largest airliner Airbus A380 is headquartered in the 'Pink City' Toulouse.
9.Only Bordeaux's surrounding has the award winning world's first wine spa- Les Sources de Caudalie and the city boasts of its first-ever wine museum- La Cité du Vin. Double whammy!
10. Burgundy's 'Climats' – terroirs, have been inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List due to its highly compartmentalised vineyard structure, expertise oriented towards excellence, outstanding landscapes and towns of exceptional built heritage.
