France is country that has a lot to offer.

As a travel destination, there are gazillions of things to do there.  And we love everything french!  Cheese-lover?  Brie, camembert, roquefort, yes they are all french cheeses.  Museum nut?  Oh yes, Chambord, Chenonceau, Chinon, and of course any mention of museums, the word Louvre automatically comes to mind.   They are known for their affectionate nature, be that in their material passion, or their amoureux.
