Perhaps one of the world’s most iconic cities, not only is Île-de-France home to the vibrant, chic metropolis Paris, it is also surrounded in a spread of emerald forests and pastoral gardens. Once the summer destination for elegant and demure aristocrats, the region’s legacy remains in the sheer class and charm of the refined mansions, monuments and magnificent châteaux. Apart from the bustling city and crowded shopping aisles, the undisclosed depths are ready to be explored through strolls, hikes and other outdoor activities. Be transported into the heart of nature and enjoy the luxury of a laidback lifestyle in France. Take advantage of the opportunity to try local cuisine made from locally sourced, organic ingredients. After all, Île-de-France is considered the grandfather of modern gastronomy.
For those seeking a low key and fuss-free escape without being too far away from home, an escape to the Paris region is the obvious choice. Easily accessible thanks to advanced modes of transport available, take gentle steps along the dapple-stoned streets minus the feeling of being completely removed from contemporary life. In a nod to wellbeing, retreats held in the Paris Region incorporate a modern twist, achieving a perfectly balanced harmony between luxury, exclusivity and mindful and clean, healthy living. White-stoned châteaux and fragrant gardens are just some of the iconic spots nestled away but still welcoming to curious and fascinated onlookers.
The Atlantic Ocean carries an inevitable influence on the region’s temperate climate. For this reason, it enjoys characteristic variations across the seasons involving the likes of pleasant summer warmth and cool and dry winters. Further long from the city, this unique temperament contributes to much of the region’s agricultural fields, wild woodland and vernal ponds defined by twisty, tangled vein-like rivers and streams. Villages are scattered with romantic, ancient castles telling forgotten tales of a bygone era. Leave a good part of the day feeling excited for premium wine tasting, produced in the neighbouring province renown and named after the famed sparkling white wine, Champagne.
