or nature lovers, the French Alps and Pyrénées offer some of the best places to visit in France.

Boasting some of the most magnificent scenery in Europe: awe-inspiring mountains, crystal-clear lakes, rushing waterfalls, and pristine forests.

In the Alps, a must-visit is Chamonix, a resort area near the borders of France, Switzerland and Italy. At the base is Mont Blanc, the highest summit in the Alps and renowned for its world-class skiing. Year-round, cable cars take visitors up to several nearby peaks with panoramic views, including Aiguille du Midi above town, and Pointe Helbronner, across vast glacier fields on the Italian border.

"Founder, Philip Haslett, can unlock the Palace of the Popes at night, unlock most doors in Bordeaux, helicopter you in to hike with shepherds in the Pyrénées, or ensconce you in a chic beachside villa whose guest list looks like the Oscars seating chart."
