  • City overview minus-thick plus-thick

    Bordeaux is a port city in southwest France. Located at the centre of a major wine-growing and producing region, Bordeaux has significant influence in the world wine industry although no wine is produced within the city itself. The historic part of the city is UNESO World Heritage listed, and the city has the highest number of preserved historical buildings of any city in France, after Paris. Paris is easily accessible from Bordeaux, with an average of 24 trains running daily between the two cities. Likewise, many airlines offer direct flights to and from the UK, making this city a great location to explore neighbouring countries.

  • Country overview minus-thick plus-thick

    France, officially the French Republic or République Française, is a country in Western Europe bordered by Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Andorra, and Spain. The capital city of Paris is the country's largest city and main cultural and commercial centre. Other major urban areas include Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Lille and Nice.

    France has a population of around 65.1 million people, ranking 22nd in the world. The official language is French, but the central location of this country makes it likely that you’ll hear many different languages, and be understood perfectly well in English. France is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful and romantic countries in the world. It is also the world's most visited country with 86 million annual visitors - more than its own total population! International travellers flock to France to explore cultural centres such as Paris and Strasbourg, sample the fine foods and wines, enjoy the beaches and see the French Alps. If you have an interest in art, food, architecture, literature and fashion, Paris is a must-see. There are also many other cities such as Toulouse and Marseille that expand upon the attractions Paris has to offer, each with their own respective aesthetic. Despite France’s reputation for city life, approximately 80% of France is countryside, dotted with picturesque villages. You easily spend years trying to discover all France has to offer, however it’s worth remembering that when in France you will be just a short tunnel ride to the UK, and within easy reach of all Europe has to offer.

    Did you know?

    France, with its overseas territories, has 12 time zones, the largest number of any country. 'Le Procope' in Paris, which opened in 1694, is the oldest café or coffee shop in the world.
