Église de la Madeleine, Paris
Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Chartres

Cathédrale Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Lyon
Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Lausanne

“It is said that the British and the French do not get on together. This, like so many stereotypes, may have had some truth when both countries had empires, the British couldn’t cook, the French couldn’t organize anything and the Brits spoke French as badly as the French spoke English. In recent years all that silliness has stopped, and anyone (even the British!) can enjoy France for its beautiful scenery, elegant cities, world-class art, reasonable prices, fabulous food – and a certain je ne saisquoi. And, these days, most of the French speak English – and don’t mind doing so!”
Hugh Davies, President, ACFEA North America
