When it comes to food and wine shopping, France is unrivalled. All the regional delicacies mean you're spoilt for choice wherever you go. The Dordogne and the Lot are famous for foie gras, canard and walnuts and Normandy for Calvados, cream and apples – and then there are the great wine regions of Burgundy and Champagne. Shopping in France is deservedly popular, with only a quick trip across the channel to bag those bargains. Or more “ooh la la” shopping experiences in Paris or Nice.
Shopping Breaks in Calais
Calais is a wonderful destination for a duty free bargain. If you haven’t picked up a treat on the plane or boat over to France then you are sure to find something in one of the hypermarkets. But Calais is not just about the hypermarkets – there is actually a lot more to Calais and the surrounding area than most might assume. It has many beautiful places and is noted for its clean beaches, delightful countryside, scenic river valleys and pretty villages. A perfect destination for any French shopping holiday.
Shopping Holidays in Paris
Paris is one of the leading cities in the world for luxuries and fashion. Perfumes, cosmetics and world-brand fashion-designs can be found and attract the interest of connoisseur visitors. If you are looking for rare furniture or small items, the flea-markets or auction sales may grab your attention. Rare items, art paintings or jewellery can be found at la Salle Drouot or at the flea markets depending on where you choose to go. Paris will always prove a memorable choice for a French shopping trip that will never fail to impress.
