France hosts thousands of festivals throughout the year, from rural treats like the Dordogne Turkey Festival to stunning artistic displays like the Lemon Festival in Menton. We went to a couple of the first festivals of the year last weekend, and picked out some great properties nearby. So, enjoy some armchair travelling and start thinking about which fun French festivals you might like to come to.
