Sénanque Abbey, Provence

Sénanque Abbey, Provence

Sénanque Abbey, Provence

The seemingly endless stretches of lavender make Provence one of the prettiest (and best-smelling) places in France. One of the most scenic spots to enjoy the flower fields is Sénanque Abbey, a twelfth-century church near the village of Gordes. The gentle heather-gray color of the abbey looks custom-made for its surroundings, particularly in the summer when the acres around it bloom into a sea of purple.

Gardens of Marqueyssac, Dordogne

Gardens of Marqueyssac, Dordogne

The famous Gardens of Marqueyssac make up one of the most stunning landscapes in France—and the world. The 150,000 bubbly boxwood trees and hedges wrap around a seventeenth-century chateau that overlooks the Dordogne valley. The entire vista looks like an illustration from a Perrault fairytale.

Cliffs of Étretat, Normandy

Cliffs of Étretat, Normandy

Located along France’s Alabaster Coast, these cliffs offer more than just steep walls. Climb to the top and you’ll have views of arched rock formations, as well as scenery that inspired Claude Monet. At various points along the cliffs’ 80-mile stretch, you can spot natural sculptures that are said to resemble an elephant, among other things. —Lauren Kilberg

Château de Chambord

Château de Chambord

While Versailles and Fontainebleau are probably the best-known French palaces, Château de Chambord may be the loveliest. Located inside a wooded park in the Loire Valley, the majestic building brings plenty of drama to the landscape—and that’s before you have a chance to see the swirled staircase, intricate ceilings, and seventeenth- and eighteenth-century furnishings on the inside. —Lilit Marcus

The Camargue, Provence

The Camargue, Provence

The Camargue, Provence

The Camargue is a marshy delta between the Mediterranean and the two branches of the Rhône that feels like another continent. Visitors can take jeep tours deep into the wilderness punctuated with briny ponds, red salt flats, and wind-whipped reeds and grasses. You’ll also see the Camargue’s trademark free-roaming white horses and some of its 400 bird species, including herons. If you’re lucky, you might even spot flamingos.
