Bonjour Paris this week: UNESCO France sites, etc.

In this week’s Bonjour Paris, I wrote a column about the UNESCO World Heritage sites in France (all 35 of them). Make sure to check out Bonjour Paris for other interesting pieces and travel tips.

    I am always surprised that list of “must see” places in France seldom mention La Rochelle and its environs. We visit annually and have only once run into Americans. The Ducth and Scots and Irish know of the area, probably for its easy access from their home bases. Of course, many French families take their holidays there. The Ile de Re must be visited as well as the Ile de Aix. The Southwest Atlantic coast is a great area for walking or cycling because it is relatively flat. The Green Venice canal area offers much in the way of charm and nature. On second thought, perhaps I should be happy the areas is mentioned so seldom. More for me!

      Thank you for your feedback, Lee. I’ve been to both La Rochelle and Ile de Ré, a wonderful region of France that should rightly be promoted abroad. What I did here was simply list the sites listed by UNESCO as having World Heritage status. You can learn more here:
