It’s hard to find a travel itinerary in France that doesn’t repeat the same big cities, the day trips to Versailles or unwinding in Saint Tropez. After nearly two years of living with travel restrictions, take the opportunity to visit the country with fresh eyes and sights set on the off-the-beaten-path experiences.
1. Eguisheim, Alsace
A short drive from Colmar, immerse yourself into the colourful town of Eguisheim, at the heart of the Alsatian wine route. There’s a good reason why Eguisheim is also known as one of the “Most Beautiful Villages in France”. Strolling down the winding streets and passing by brightly coloured old houses with pointed roofs and timber-framed façades feels nothing short of a storybook experience. Delve into the magic of Christmas in this enchanting medieval village’s Christmas market, with festive food and warm spicy wine to indulge in.
