10 Instagrammable Places In France to Visit


France is somewhere I had previously never desired to visit, not for any particular reasons other than there were other places I wanted to visit more. And then we did a tour our of France and felt we had been let into the best secret ever. France is breathtaking and there are so many stunning places to visit in France. Check out these 10 Instagrammable Places In France to Visit.

One of those countries that make Instagram addict’s heart skip a beat with excitement. I took so many photos during our trip, and despite the weather (the worst France had seen in May for 100 years), everything was so pretty and oh-so photogenic.

If you want to see me create my projects, follow me on Tik Tok and Instagram.

It has made me long for another family trip to France, travelling the length and breadth of the country and exploring pretty places to stop and rest.

And for those doubting Thomas’s amongst you who haven’t caught the France bug yet, I have asked a few friends to share their favourite Instagram spots in France.

And with Brittany Ferries offering such a wide choice of convenient and easy ferry crossings across the Channel, I can’t wait to plan another trip exploring some of these beauties.

1. Claire from The Talking Suitcase Adores the beauty of Étretat

Étretat was originally a fishing village that became a popular seaside resort in the 19th century when Impressionist painters like Monet and Gustave Courbet came to paint the extraordinary landscape.

You can see why with these views, and am I the only person who would feel the profoundness of sitting and admiring a view the Monet once painted?

2. Lot et Garonne and Aquitaine

Nothing makes me swoon like a pretty street, and Chloe’s photos from the streets of Lot et Garonne and Aquitaine are utterly beautiful.

I think it’s the pastel shutters and window boxes that make the streets look like they come straight out of a Disney movie. Wandering a pretty street feels like such a luxury, especially when you have time to take photos and choose the perfect spot for that ever-so-cute baby photo.

Check out Sorry About The Mess for more photos, but this one makes my heart melt.

3. Chateau D’Usse in the Loire Valley is Rumoured to Have Inspired Sleeping Beauty

Château d’Usse, often called the “Sleeping Beauty Castle” (Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant), is a picturesque castle in the Loire Valley of France. It is known for its fairytale-like appearance and its association with the famous fairy tale “Sleeping Beauty” by Charles Perrault.

The castle’s architecture is a mix of styles, combining medieval and Renaissance design elements. It features impressive turrets, towers, and spires, giving it a distinctive fairytale appearance. The castle overlooks the Indre River.

4. Paris

I am ever so slightly envious of Kirstie’s solo trip to Paris. Where she vowed to walk, to do less and notice more.

This is my kind of trip. I adore wandering with my camera, and Kirstie did it in PARIS. Check out her article, a visual feast of Paris. Check out the Family Adventure Project to see more! Seriously, all the hearts for this post.

5. Le Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy

Is a real fave of Donna from Like Love Do. Having a home not far from this incredible landmark, Donna has shared so many breathtaking photos over the years. Le Mont Saint-Michel is one of the most visited sites in France and is a Unesco Heritage site. It is visited by over 3 million people every year, and as of 2009 the island had a population of just 44 people. Donna’s post offers some great history and useful tips.

6. The Ile de Porquerolles Region of France

Made up of pebbles rather than sand, and surrounded by craggy rocks topped with beautiful green pine trees, Brégançonnet is picturesque.

The southern side of the island is a different story to the soft sandy beaches of the North. Check out the post over at Dais Like These for a little beach inspiration.

7. Nantes

This Mechanical Elephant is so very Instagram-worthy and something. Travel Loving Families Lisa and her family were in awe of its structure. Her article shows how exploring is so wonderful with small children in tow.

8. Disney Land Paris Offers Insta Worthy in Abundance?

Yes, I know it’s not the real France, but you can’t deny that Disney is oh-so Instagrammable. And who doesn’t love a bit of Disney Spam? I look forward to Kerri Anne’s trips, and check out the rest of the trip over at Life As Our Little Family; it makes you want to rush off and book a trip.

9. The Burgundy Region

I fell head over heels with the whole region. Burgundy, or “Bourgogne” in French, is a historical region located in eastern-central France. It is renowned for its rich cultural heritage, stunning landscapes, and significant contributions to wine and cuisine.

10. Palais Longchamp in Marseille

The Palais Longchamp in Marseille is a neoclassical monument built in the 19th century to celebrate the arrival of water from the Durance River to the city.

It features two grand wings with triumphal arches and a monumental fountain. Plus, it houses two museums, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Natural History Museum. Beautiful gardens surround the palace and hosts various cultural events. It is a significant symbol of Marseille’s history and a popular tourist attraction.

  1. Aaah looking at all these lovely pics has made me yearn for a bit of sun!! We’ve just returned from a (very) rainy few days in Wales — and although it was perfect, I think the next time we go away I’d like to see a bit of sunshine. Love all these beautiful pics — that Chateau in the Loire is just stunning!

  2. France is SUCH a diverse country – so much to see and do there and so much space too! The countryside is just incredible…and the beaches…and the cities! Love it. xx

  3. Oh I love finding those amazing unqiue instagrammable places when we are on holiday. France is fab for that with their amazing buildings and beaches.It’s nice to have a collection of them before you go to plan those fun photos. I say we need to get a little blogger photo op for a night or two in France and have some photo fun!!!!! #wrc

    • Oooh we totally do Jenny that would be amazing, and yes France is such a wonderfully instagram able place and that is what draws me to a region x

  4. I’ve been to Paris a couple of times but that’s it in France. I’d love to explore it more – each region is supposed to be so unique and from all of these posts you’ve included I can see that’s true. the Sleeping Beauty Castle – oh my goodness I have to go there! Have added it to my travel bucket list.

  5. Oh now this just makes me want a holiday even more! We’ve been to France twice as a family, Brittany and Paris (Disney only though). I’m owed a romantic trip to Paris after we had to cancel our trip a couple of years ago. Maybe I should start dropping some more hints to the husband 😉 xx

  6. Mont Saint Michel is the one that does it for me. Absolutely love the place even a you approach from a distance it’s magnificence proves why it’s one of the most popular attractions in France outside of Paris.
    The only problem with France is that it’s too big. There are jaw dropping places to visit and stunning scenery all over the country and each region is slightly different from the last. I for one am really looking forward to retiring so that i can get a motorhome and explore the country at my leisure.
