Winter in France is a charming time of year for everyone. In fact, France has so much to offer at this time of year that it is perfect for a winter stroll, from the vibrancy of the winter ski resorts to the beautiful, tourist-free beaches of the Mediterranean Sea. Plus, there is plenty of time to explore the charming towns that come alive during the Christmas season. Here are some ideas for how to spend winter in France.

Winter is a time for fun in the mountains of France. From Mont Blanc to the Pyrenees, France has a great variety of mountains. Countless snow and adventure activities are available, including cross-country skiing and snowboarding.
