A continent in a country, France has it all whether you seek a family villa in Provence
or a hideaway for a weekend a deux in Paris. Topographically there are three very different coastlines: the Med, the Atlantic and the Channel, four mountain ranges: the Alps, Pyrenees, Jura and Massif Central and even a volcano or two in the Auvergne. It has the lavender fields, sunflowers and cicadas of Provence, undulating hillside vineyards of Bordeaux, yacht-filled ports on the Cote d'Azur
and Paris, its epicentre, forever energetic and romantic. Though immortalised by Picasso, Renoir, Matisse, Cézanne and Van Gogh, the beauty of France still surprises. Such is the magnificence of the architecture that 41 buildings have been designated World Heritage sites, three not to be missed are the Palais des Papas in Avignon, the gothic great Chartres cathedral and the banks of Paris' River Seine. Beyond the historic cities are cascading villages built into precipitous cliffs, luminous coastal harbours and swathes of verdant forests. As intrinsic to France's identity as its history, culture, and chic women is its cuisine - oysters of Cap Ferret, fois gras and walnuts from the Dordogne and Marseilles' bouillabaisse. It's hardly surprising that France was the first nation to have its gastronomy recognised by UNESCO as an 'intangible cultural heritage'. Whatever your destination, be it at the pulse of the Côte d'Azur, the peace of the Dordogne
or secreted away in the Le Petit Luberon of Provence, Red Savannah has the private villa, chateau or boutique hotel for you. Rest assured before you arrive we will have sampled the chef's cassoulet, rooted round for truffles, and checked the pool's water temperature.
