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...

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.
