Some photos of France - Cendrine Marrouat Photography

Every time I mention online I was born and raised in France, people ask me to share photos.

Here are some below...

Hendaye is the most south-westerly town and commune in France, in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department and the French Basque Country. The town is a popular seaside tourist resort by the Atlantic coast, the Côte Basque, on the right bank of the Bidassoa which marks the France–Spain border.

Saint-Jean-de-Luz is another lovely city in the French Basque Country. 

Biarritz is known worldwide for its Virgin’s rock, surfing scene, and incredible fireworks that happens every July 14.

Surgères is a town in southwestern France. It is famous for two things: Hélène de Fonsèque, who was the muse of Poet Pierre de Ronsard, and the Charentes-Poitou butter.

I lived there for the first ten years of my life and have strong emotional ties to the place.

Gruissan is a charming French town located on the Mediterranean coast, near Narbonne. It has a small fishing harbor and a castle.

Like other Mediterranean locales, Gruissan's population tends to swell in the summer. Winters are a lot calmer.

I was there in December 2006.

Chamonix was very busy on that day. There was a race of some sort. So, parts of the city were closed to tourists. But I found the Statue of Horace Bénédict de Saussure quite inspiring. :-)

De Saussure was a Swiss geologist, meteorologist, physicist, mountaineer and Alpine explorer. He is considered by many as the founder of alpinism and modern meteorology.
