Places in France you never thought to visit (but really should)

If you are going to be touring France there may be some places you might want to put on your list. Barcelonnette, Provence is always lively and full of music it makes you feel like your in Mexico without leaving Europe. Le Grau-du-Roi, Languedoc is very lively as well with a full-tilt seaside holiday – ice-creams, blow-up dolphins, a bit of noise, a lot of activity and a happy hubbub in streets.

Key Takeaways:

  • One of the most popular stops on the grail hunt today is Spain’s Valencia Cathedral, which displays an ancient relic that historians and treasure hunters alike believe to be the most likely contender for the Holy Grail, if it does indeed exist.
  • It’s as close as you can get to Mexico without leaving Europe, as in the 19th century, locals fled the valley to make their fortunes in Mexico, then returned, full of Latin ideas and cash.”
  • Another of Anthony Peregrine’s favorite spots. “It’s among the best (and prettiest) bases from which to cover Alsace, especially now its famous Musée Unterlinden has re-opened,” he says.

“Frank Preston writes: “Arrive in Guéthary, and you know the holiday’s going to have character.”
