The day before the Monaco Grand Prix

The Formula One Grand Prix circus arrives in Monaco this week for the three day festival May 21st to the 23rd. Visiting Monte Carlo the day before the weekend starts is a spectacle in itself. Walk on some of the race-track, stand on pole position and take in the scenery.

La Franqui beach

The lovely unspoilt beach resort in the Languedoc, La Franqui beach is a hidden gem, half an hour from Narbonne. Visit for a relaxed vibe and a lovely, large sandy beach. La Franqui has remained unspoilt and not overdeveloped. You will find a huge sandy beach which is never crowded even in the height of summer.

Canoeing on the Dordogne River

Enjoy a sunny afternoon, drifting down the Dordogne River in a canoe this summer. Discover the tranquility and watch the historical beauty of the Dordogne countryside pass you by from the comfort of your canoe or kayak. Choose from various points of departure along the Dordogne River. Park your vehicle and then depart from the river shore, upon either a canoe, a kayak or a stand-up paddle. At the end of your day travelling down the river, get a bus back to your vehicle.
