The photos of France on these pages were taken during month-long trips in 2011 and 2014 traveling through the Alsace portion of the country and then on through southern and central France. Many of the villages shown on these pages still have some or much of the medieval fortifications that date back to the 13th and 14th century. All of these villages are beautiful, interesting, clean and safe and a sheer pleasure to visit. Many areas here are famous for wine and one can pass by mile after mile of vineyards while traveling from one village to another. The landscape is also dotted with ancient castles. Riquewihr is a great place from which to explore the Alsace area. Aix En Provence and Avignon, are more modern cities, but cities that maintain much of their ancient history. Carcassonne has one of the finest and largest restored castles in France and is a lot of fun to explore. It is hugely popular, one of the most visited tourist sites in France. From Carcassonne, it's easy to travel out to many little villages that still have castles and village walls that date back to the middle ages.
