Tasting of flora and the country green,|
Dance, and Provençal song, and sunburnt mirth
O for a beaker full of the warm South...
Keats, "Ode to a Nightingale"
Paris is a veritable ocean. Throw in|
a plumb line and you will never know the
depth of it...
Balzac, Le Père Goriot
France is a country that long before John Keats wrote his "Ode to a Nightingale" has inspired dreams in all people who love its romance, pastoral beauty and proud patrimony, not to mention its fine cuisine and perfectly balanced wines. It is a country where bold innovation and centuries-old tradition are always are at play, producing a dynamic and complex culture where the ancient and the modern coexist in rare harmony. Is this not a special land where one yearns to become part of its rich fabric, rather than merely passing through as a tourist?
Your own home in France. Imagine:
A candlelight dinner on the terrace as you watch the sun set over Provence,
with the spire of the village church silhouetted against the darkening sky and the
aroma of lavender and rosemary drifting from the garden around your swimming pool.|
Waking to see the sun rising over the Mediterranean as you prepare for another day of enjoying the beaches, finding products for tonight's dinner in the local village markets and exploring the hill towns of the Côte d'Azur.
A cozy, stylishly decorated apartment with the smell of freshly made coffee coming from your own kitchen, and all of Paris at your doorstep.
