Publisher Comments:

Told in a series of stylish, original essays, 100 Places in France Every Woman Should Go is for the serious Francophile, for anyone dreaming of a trip to France, and for those who just love to read rich, well-written travel essays about anywhere on the planet. Like all great travel writing, 100 Places in France transcends the genre of guidebook and offers plentiful insight and inspiration about France, travel, and life in general. It is an entirely fresh, captivating collection of stories about France with notable heart, style and substance.

Award-winning writer Marcia DeSanctis draws on years of travels and living in France to lead you through the 100 places she has thoughtfully chosen: vineyards, architectural treasures, fabled gardens and contemplative hikes from Biarritz to Deauville, Antibes to the French Alps. She captures art, history, food, fresh air and style and along the way, she tells the stories of fascinating women who changed France's destiny. Ride a white horse in the Camargue, find Paris's hidden museums, try thalassotherapy in St. Malo, and buy raspberries at Nice's Cour Saleya market. From sexy to literary, spiritual to simply gorgeous, 100 Places in France Every Woman Should Go is sure to engage readers' memories, imagination, and curiosity about France throughout.

This book is the perfect, interesting, intelligent travel companion. It’s full of excellent advice, humor, experience, and the kind of information you’d get from talking for hours with your well-traveled best friend who has lived there.
