The sun is shining and the flowers are blooming, spring has sprung in France! Take a look at how stunning France is in the spring

You know spring has arrived when tulips start popping up in the public parks and gardens, like here in Paris.

Or when the blossoms appear in the trees like these ones in front of the Parlement of Brittany in Rennes.

It’s also time to go en terrasse again and enjoy an apéritif outside!

A glass of wine on a bed of flowers anyone?

Beach days are getting closer...

The good weather means it’s time to get active outdoors again. Why not take a cycle ride through the city, like here in Toulouse?

It’s also the beginning of festival season! Le Printemps Solidaire for example, taking place in Paris, with concerts on floats driving down the Champs-Elysées.

There are those who embrace spring like it’s summer already with a seafood platter in Cap Ferret...

...and others just soaking up the sun in the gorgeous Tuileries gardens in Paris.

French canals open in spring after closing for the winter – the perfect opportunity for a punt on the water or a stroll on the riverbanks.

Speaking of which, the banks of the Rhône in Lyon look particularly charming in the sunshine.

The mountains shed their winter coats as the last patches of snow melt to reveal a stunning panorama.

Once again, how glorious are these blossoms by the Seine?

Yes, spring really has everyone smiling, even this street art in Bordeaux!
