France Resources

France is predominantly a country of contrasting rural landscapes, from the soaring mountains of the Alps to limestone gorges, fields of lavender, ancient volcanoes and Cathar castles, each demanding your attention and understanding. 

The allure of the Alps and the other mountain landscapes of the Massif Central, the Maurienne, Pyrenees and the Vosges and Jura is overwhelming, and one visit is never enough, but simply an introduction to a lifelong passion.

So if you are looking for a long-distance trek, how about the GR5 from Geneva to Nice, or the Tour of Mont Blanc? Or for shorter day walks there are any number of possibilities, including the Cevennes, the Dordogne and the Ecrins National Park.
