The internet is awash with Instagram stars and their dreamy photos in unlikely and often remote places.
But there’s no need to go further than France to visit equally unusual and beautiful places that will fire your imagination.
For this summer, we have put together a small selection of influencers to help you discover the country from every angle.

Leonit’s photos showcase Alsace wonderfully and will make you want to explore this beautiful region of France. Half-timbered houses, medieval castles, flower-filled villages and Christmas markets are just a selection of the region’s unique places that you can discover. You might even be tempted to splash out and buy a second home there!

Cyril L’Hibou lives in France’s Occitanie region and promotes his region through his colourful pictures. You’re bound to be enthralled by the diverse landscapes of Collioure, Toulouse and Argelès-sur-Mer. This account is certain to make you a fan of south-west France.
The surprising Centre-Val-de-Loire region, as seen by @joelklinger.photography
Often overlooked by the French themselves, the Centre-Val-de-Loire region has plenty to surprise you. Joël, who lives in Tours, shows the diversity of the region’s heritage through his photos of the splendid châteaux of the Loire and its landscapes. This region is bursting with culture and energy.

And last but not least, we fell in love with @Maxime_adm‘s inspiring and unique pictures. This account is proof of the fact that there’s no need to go to the other side of the world to see sublime landscapes. It’ll make you want to visit France again and again!
