WITH France slowly drifting into holiday mode the Telegraph’s correspondent Colin Randall offers some tips on travelling through France.
If you are heading to the south of France from the UK it is quite a challenge to do it without an overnight stop – so he says make an adventure of it.
Colin says that some of the best times he has had have been when he has pulled off the autoroute in the late afternoon and stopped at a small hotel or chamber d’hotes for the night.
If you are looking to explore a few places online before heading out then the French Duck website has a list of interesting things seen on the web.
They have spotted a couple of interesting websites set-up by vineyards and a site that offers a range of images and photographs from around France.
I also received a couple of emails recently from people pointing out useful websites and articles, the first of which is Notre Temps.
Although it might be aimed at retirees, there is still plenty of useful information regardless of your age.
