France is the biggest country in Western Europe and also has coastline on the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterrean Sea.
France is the largest producer of cereals and oils, sunflowers subsidized by the EU. Their agriculture also consists of olive trees, rape seed, (canola oil) and maze for animal fodder. Of course you will see a lot of cattle on the countryside which accounts for the wide and varied varity of cheese from France. There are flowers in the south of France, strawberries in the Dordogne, mushrooms in the Loire and Champagne wines east of Paris. France is a delightful treat for all the senses.
This wonderful area of France is not as large a tourist area as the more well known spots. The countryside here more in the center of France is absolutely gorgeous. We discovered there are many, many castles in this area, some located on the Dordogne River. We traveled via Bergerac to see the castle of Beynac, the fortress of Castelnaud and Josephine Baker's Chateau of Les Milandes.
This picture was taken in St. Emilion, near Bordeaux, famous for its red wines. Being there in September meant that we could see the grape harvest taking place. Quite impressive.
- Pros:A country of dazzling landscapes and civilizations!
- Cons:France is so big, it is hard to take it in.
- In a nutshell:This is: joie de vivre!
