France, unbeatable for the summer holidays

France is an excellent choice for going on vacation! And this is nothing new since it is regularly cited as the number one tourist destination in the world.

Even at the last moment, the country of your childhood opens its arms wide to you, whether you are more of a trendy tan, green escape, or mountain. And again, the choice is vast. Small trendy list to give you ideas:

No need to go to Italy to experience the dolce vita: a little trip from Paris to Nice, what do you think? Caught between the hills and the Mediterranean, the fifth French city is a dream! And in addition to promising you sun and relaxation, it will enchant you with its old town and its museums, including the Marc Chagall National Museum.

Amboise, Blois Chambord, Chenonceaux…: ah, the châteaux of the Loire! To visit at least once in your life! Truly royal, the Loire Valley is also a little paradise for all fans of greenery and hiking.

Want to go higher? You're right, the French mountains are so beautiful in summer ... To make the most of them, head to the unmissable city of Annecy! The opportunity to take large bowls of fresh air while mirroring the lake, one of the prettiest in France.

Kenya: the great escape during the summer holidays

If you dream of more distant horizons, planning a trip to Kenya in August is still possible! Cradle of safari, this splendid country offers many unforgettable landscapes, from large unspoiled spaces to opulent tropical forests, from dune deserts to fine sandy beaches. Not to be missed if you indulge yourself this summer:

Mount Kenya National Park: This magnificent national park, classified by Unesco, will seduce you as much for its hiking possibilities as for the ascent of Mount Kenya, the second-highest peak in Africa, which rises to 5199 meters!

Maasai Mara National Reserve: This nature reserve, the most famous in the country, will allow you to admire an exceptionally varied fauna, which evolves in complete freedom. Go spy for lions, elephants, antelopes, cheetahs, zebras, or rhinos!

Amboseli National Park: Very visited despite its small size, this national park enjoys a unique atmosphere, which has delighted writers such as Ernest Hemingway and Joseph Kessel. Less than 250 km from the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, it is crossed by large herds of elephants. A procession to admire with children's eyes and the vertiginous Kilimanjaro in the background!
