Wild and windy Pointe du Raz, France’s equivalent of Land’s End, is one of Brittany’s most popular natural sites. With its breathtaking clifftop walks (you’ll need a head for heights!), perilous waters, intriguing island and charming fishing ports, this area offers an authentic slice of Breton life.
Enchanting beauty
Pointe du Raz first became popular with visitors in the 19th century thanks to its appearance in the works of Gustave Flaubert and Victor Hugo who were enchanted by its stark beauty. However, the extent of tourism led to environmental degradation, which thankfully has now been addressed. These days, around 850,00 visitors a year come to wander through the gorse and heather and admire the views at France's most westerly point. Make your first stop the Maison de la Site (welcome center) to orient you and maybe sign up for a guided tour.
The bay of the dead
North of the Pointe du Raz is the Baie des Trépassés (bay of the dead), apparently so-called because of the number of shipwrecked bodies that used to get washed up here – the waters in this area have some of the strongest currents in Europe. However, in spite of its grim name, this is a scenic spot with rolling green meadows that slope down to a sandy beach, which is very popular with surfers.

Port Grimaud is a seaside town that forms part of the commune of Grimaud. It is located on the French Riviera, near Saint-Tropez and Sainte Maxime.
This seaside town was created by architect François Spoerry in the 1960s by modifying the marshes of the river Giscle on the bay of Saint Tropez. Built with channels in a Venetian manner, but with French "Fishermans" style houses resembling those in Saint Tropez.

History tells us that in 1643, Lyon made a vow to build a statue of the Virgin Mary if she spared the city from the scourge of the plague. A vow was made... and the promise kept. Centuries later, the city commemorates it with 1 day of illuminated parties at night, with a strong root in the religious and secular traditions of the former capital of the Gauls. Poetic, magical, dreamlike ... this is how you could describe the city around 8th December. Lyon has been celebrating the feast of the Immaculate conception on the 8th December at night fall since 1852. According to custom, the first Lyonnais used to decorate their windows with multicoloured glasses embellished with a candle. The traditions haven't changed since: at 7pm, the city comes alight in unison. Passers-by are amazed at front facades wich light up in spectacular and surreal ways. Head out with the family and experience the festive atmosphere.
