Destination France is a sumptuous magazine with a passion for France. It's packed with news, events, holiday ideas and in-depth guides with beautiful photographs. The Autumn issue features the Christmas and New Year pages at French Connections, where owners can see a useful guide and promote their properties and holidaymakers will soon be able to find and book their perfect French getaway for the festive season.
One regional focus for the Autumn issue of the magazine is the department of Yvelines, just west of Paris in the Ile de France. Its most popular attraction is the vast Palace of Versailles, centre of the royal court since the 17th century and probably most famous for its association with Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. Here, you can see not only the main apartments and chapel but also the gardens and even Marie Antoinette's farm.
But Versailles is not the only chateau worth visiting in this area. The magazine also recommends the less well known Grand and Petit Trianon, the Chateau de Rambouillet set in forest in the south west of Yvelines and the Chateau de Breteuil at Choisel, which has stunning gardens and life-sized waxwork figures.
Destination France magazine is published quarterly and currently has a special offer on postal subscriptions.
