`A MOVEABLE FEAST’

`if you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris…….,then wherever you go for the rest of your life,it stays with you for Paris is a moveable feast’

Ernest Hemingway to a friend in 1950

Paris the city of love is a celebration of life.

Beyond the CITY past the iconic Moulin Rouge,climb up the steep slopes to the quaint artists’ village of Montmarte where the voice of Edith Piaf echoes in Au Lapin Agile. And where the café La Maison Rose invokes memories of Utrillo,Renoir,and Van Gogh

On to Claude Monet’s Giverney with its Japanese bridge and water lilies and then to the city of Joan ofArc …Rouen with its cathedral. . . and the fascinating wooden houses….then.Hornfleur the favourite destination of the impressionist painters with its slate houses…..The D Day landing beaches and the poppies in the Flanders Fields

..On to the city of Rennes in Brittany and the little island of Mont St. Michel and then to the Loire valley with its many castles …each unfolding a fascinating story.

The famous vineyards and the old town of St Emiliona world heritage site with its Romanesque church and ruins.

To Arles in Provence, `full of the warm south’ where the café painted by Van Gogh still stands…then a drive down the French Riviera onto Nice. Eze and St Paul enVence in the footsteps of Cezanne, Matisse and Chagall..And finally on to the fairy tale like fort of Carcassone with its 53 watch towers and a formidable double walled fortification.

And then on to more wonders beyond the borders.
