With so much of the country bordering the ocean, it’s no surprise that France is celebrated for its stunning beaches.
Staying at a beachside hotel, at least for part of your adventure, is highly recommended. Not only do you get priority access to the ocean, but it also offer up regional treats like fresh seafood and local wine pairings. Plus, there’s really nothing more relaxing than the sound of waves crashing against the shore while you drift into a peaceful slumber.
