Visiting France in June means you’ll beat the heavy summer crowds. The warm sunny days are just right for whiling away an afternoon at a Parisian café, or indulging in a picnic under the shade of a tree in one of the parks. Head north to Normandy for the D-Day anniversary and you can stroll along the beaches to soak up some of the glorious light that’s attracted so many artists over the years.
Towards the end of the month, the lavender is just beginning to bloom in Provence. Or you might relax on the Riviera’s beaches before the real heat sets in.
