A beautiful and historic country, full of 'chateaux' and encompassing a variety of landscapes, France is both an incredibly popular tourist destinations and one of continental Europe's most economically powerful countries.
France is a country towards the western end of the European continental landmass. One of the most powerful and influential of the continental countries since medieval times, modern France is a major economic power within the European Union. Although overall a temperate country, the French climate varies a great deal, from the cooler north to the Mediterranean coasts of the south, and to the mountainous regions of the Alps in the east and the Pyrenees in the southwest. Many business travellers heading to serviced apartments in France, however, will be on their way to Paris, as the historic French capital is one of the major cities in Europe.
France has a diverse economy which includes agricultural export, energy production, technology and automobile production, but tourism is perhaps most worthy of note. France is the most visited country in the world and visitors often stay longer, which can make an aparthotel there an ideal option. There are a variety of landscapes and an astonishing wealth of history in the country, including 39 UNESCO World Heritage sites. Paris draws visitors for its culture, art and museums, while the vast countryside is ideal for a bit of exploration. French beaches are popular from the north to the south of the country. The French Riviera – the Côte d’Azur – in southeast France, brings much of this together, with a mix of beaches, ski resorts and golf courses all in one relatively small region.
