The Republic of France stretches north from the Mediterranean up to the English Channel and the North Sea. From the Alps in the south east and the Pyrenees in the south west to the coastal plains and fishing villages in the north, it has a range of climates from continental to alpine. France is the largest country in the EU by area and has been a major power for centuries. It is a leading agricultural producer of wheat, poultry and dairy products along with its internationally acclaimed food and wine.
It is a big tourist destination with the cultures and shopping of Paris, beautiful beach resorts, snow sports and green tourism which means there is something for everyone. You can see some of its best-loved sights from our excellent France Webcams, including the inside of a mouth-watering boulangerie!
