Some places are in their glory in certain seasons. Italy in summer. New York at Christmas. And while France is always a good idea, there's something truly magical about French springtime. 

With the warm weather comes a flurry of events, like the incredible lightshow of Chartres and the worldwide glamor of the Cannes Festival. Mother Nature joins the party too, with perfect weather for beach days and garden picnics (not to mention cocktails on Parisian rooftops).

Come along and find out what makes this time of year so special in France. Better yet, see for yourself.
