Visit Cote d’Azur, France - Frejus

Fréjus, on the east bank of the river Argens estuary and its flood plain, is an animated and long-established little beach resort, popular with families. It is close to the Esterel hills and makes a good base for coastal drives.

The middle of the town, 3km (2 miles) inland, consists of 17th- to 20th-century districts around an old quarter of narrow streets, many now traffic free or with restricted traffic. At the heart of the old town is the lovely Cité Épiscopale (cathedral close), with a medieval cathedral, cloisters and fifth-century baptistery.

Visit the Dordogne, France - Sarlat

This beautifully restored golden-stone town is now one of the most popular places in the Dordogne. Set in the heart of the Périgord Noir area, Sarlat is renowned for its gastronomy, and devotees of foie gras and other delicacies make regular pilgrimages to the town’s specialist suppliers and restaurants. But the town itself is also an attraction.

Apart from the nondescript rue de la République, Sarlat looks much as it must have done in its Renaissance heyday, with narrow winding alleys and passages wriggling between well-preserved town houses. Read more about Sarlat and the Dordogne
