Synopses & Reviews
Year after year, France reigns as the worlds most popular travelers destination. And here are a years worth of reasons why: Vineyards spread over sun-drenched landscapes. Still-glorious Roman ruins. Plus petite rounds of chevre, fragrant lavender, tarts lined up in a patisserie window, glistening beds of sea salt, stately cha^teaux, and the singularly Parisian pleasure of whiling away the afternoon on a chair in the Luxembourg Gardens. 365 Days of France brings the romance, the food, the beautiful French spirit to every day of the year. Spend each month exploring a different region, through dozens of full-color photographs by Steven Rothfeld and delightful text by Patricia Wells.
