 #Annecy: my favourite city in France and one of my favourite cities ever. With Venice-like canals, top notch shopping and Michelin-star restaurants, a castle and a lake and mountain view like this can you blame me? Btw Annecy is nicknamed Venice of the Alps. This is my 8th trip there and I'm still not sick of it!  #lac #lacdannecy #annecylevieux #lake #alpes #alps
 The Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Chartres, built in 1145, is considered one of the finest and best preserved Gothic cathedrals in France and in Europe. It was placed it on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1979. In 2009 the French Ministry of Culture began a $18.5 million restoration program which is due to be completed in 2017. What I saw so far of the almost completed restoration works was nothing short of spectacular. This was one of the most amazing cathedrals I have seen. It was enormous and both the exterior and interior were fascinating with so many different things to look at. This altar statue depicts 'The Assumption into Heaven of the Blessed Virgin Mary', created by an unknown artist. ⛪ . ❔Tell me: Which is the most spectacular cathedral you've ever seen❔
 Just hangin' about with my friend Freddy the Flamingo (where's the flamingo emoji?)  #belambrawards
 Here's the lovely Château d'Ussé with its pretty rose garden. Tell me: Do you want to see more castle pics?  #chateaudusse #chateaudussé #usse #rignyussé
 A lovely half-timbered house (maison à colombages) in Saint Valéry en Caux. Maison Henri IV was constructed in 1540 and is a 'monument historique.' It is now a museum about South American maritime expeditions, because the rich shipowner (Guillaume Ladiré) who constructed it travelled there a lot. Do you like these types of houses?  ⛵ #monumenthistorique #patrimoine
 Postcards from Saint Malo... I first saw these cute handmade skirt cards in Provence. I was happy to see them again here in the north of France too. In case you are wondering why there's a pirate on the card Saint Malo has a long history of having pirates and corsaires
 Cute little beach huts... they make me think of England! Except this was in France, in a little seaside town called Pourville-sur-Mer. Monet painted 《La plage sur Pourville》(Beach in Pourville) here in 1882.
