Where better to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Impressionism than this artist's bolthole just outside of Paris?
A host of events celebrating 150 years since the first Impressionist exhibition was held will be taking place in Paris and Normandy but here are some highlights that should not be missed this year.
The town of Vence is at the heart of Provence and is one of the perched villages that have managed to retain their authenticity and charm of the Middle Ages. The gentle pace of life in this destination means you can choose between lounging by the pool under the pine trees or following the foorsteps of the greatest artists who have lived here.
In Fère-en-Tardenois, in the heart of the forest, thanks to the gentle rustling of the leaves of centuries-old trees, the atmosphere is fantastic and we understand why Robert de Dreux chose this site to build his castle.
Boulogne sur Mer is the perfect place if you want to really immerse yourself in a town that lives with and for the sea ! Here, there’s Nausicaa, Europe’s largest aquarium, well worth a visit if you’re interested in the marine world. The town is also world-famous for its fishing port, its traditional fish market and its rich history.
