The north-eastern French

The north-eastern French region of Alsace is a place of scenic splendour and historical wonder with picturesque small towns, colourful half-timbered houses and vineyards carpeting the landscape. Away from the conventional travel routes of Paris, Provence and the Côte d’Azur, this cultural corner is less than 6 hour’s drive from Calais and one of the most beautiful and undiscovered places in France. Alsace borders Germany and Switzerland, and lies on the west bank of the river Rhine, between the rhine and the Vosges mountains with Lorraine and Franche Comté to the west. There are many wonderful locations to visit in Alsace, this guide highlights the most impressive sights to see and capture on camera within the region. Fairy-tale pretty ALSACE A guide to the best villages, vineyards and castles of Alsace by award winning photographer Jeremy Flint. Riquewihr Strasbourg Cathedral Alsace Wine Route A tour along the Route des Vins d’Alsace (Alsace wine route) that spans the wine growing area over 170km and five regions from near Strasbourg in the north to just south of Colmar uncovers some of the best things to discover in the area. This classic Alsatian wine route is one of France’s oldest and most popular drives that traverses the heart of the region. The journey takes you through a multicoloured landscape of luxurious green vines, perched castles, pleasant mountains, and attractive villages where you can savour, swirl and purchase aromatic Alsace vintages at one of the many roadside wine cellars. Strasbourg Alsace comprises a mix of French and German heritage reflecting each country’s control of the area over the centuries. The wonderful blend of French and German culture is evident in the fairy-tale towns and villages that line the route with their halftimbered houses and cobblestone streets. Set on the Rhine, Strasbourg is one of the finest medieval towns in Northeast France and one of the most photogenic places you can visit 36 | The Good Life France The Good Life France | 37
