Time in France can be ethereal. Envision a grand Cru Burgundy consumed in a winemaker’s barn in rural Burgundy, freshly shucked Oysters on a beach in Cape Ferret, or a sun drenched square near Sacre Coeur on a lazy Sunday afternoon…the list goes on. The country feeds all of the senses and each region delivers distinct and different experiences. The beaches of Normandy implore us to avoid another world war scenario. Rustic, hearty experiences in Alsace are a welcome foil to chic, fast-paced Paris. The abundant rosé of Provence contrasts with the formality of Bordeaux. This truly is one of the few countries in the world that warrants a regular pilgrimage.
