Les Choregies d’Orange

Arguably the oldest festival in France, the Chorégies d’Orange can be traced back to the 1860s. What started as an event glorifying Rome gradually became a space for classical music to be enjoyed by thousands. The town’s famous ancient theatre, a perfect Roman leftover boasting UNESCO World Heritage Site status, provides excellent acoustics for the opera belted out here every summer – one of many reasons to visit this historical city.
Dates 2018: From 20th June to 4th August 2018

Musée International des Arts Modestes

This museum’s humble title refers to the slightly unusual nature of its contents, for it’s not paintings or sculptures that lie within but a refreshingly bizarre combination of discarded items, from plastic toys to old posters and various other knick-knacks and bric-a-brac. Provoking a sense of nostalgia and whimsy, it’s certainly a new way to look at everyday objects.

Chateau de la Hunaudaye

Erected around 1220 by Olivier Tournemine, the stronghold was destroyed during the Breton War of Succession and eventually rebuilt in the 15th century as the castle we see today. Meander through the ruins, take a closer look at the impressive defence system from the vantage point of the inner courtyard before having a good old snoop round the state rooms (drop by the kitchen and cellars, you won't regret it) – you could easily spend a whole day exploring the mighty fort.

Chateau de Combourg

This prestigious castle, once a staunch defender of the Breton border, dominates the medieval town of Combourg and its legendary lake. Explore for yourself an ancient chateau evocative of Brittany's battling past, set in a glorious English-style park and steeped in the memory of Chateaubriand, Father of Romanticism. His reminiscences in Memoirs from beyond the Grave spell out the indelible impression of this childhood home: 'In the woods of Combourg, I became what I am'. To this day the chateau remains the home of Chateaubriand’s descendants. Restoration in the late 19th century in Gothic revival style enhanced the historic connections of this significant site and you can now visit the characterful interior – including the great writer’s boyhood bedroom – on a guided tour, or stroll in the spacious park. Group visits and private events can also be arranged.

Museum of Tools and the Working Philosophy

Troyes, with its medieval streets and half-timbered houses, is a city steeped in history, so it’s only fitting that it should be home to a retrospective museum such as this. La Maison de l’Outil et de la Pensée Ouvrière takes us on a journey through the evolution of craft instruments, giving recognition to tools of the trade of artisans through the ages. Far from being mundane, it’s an eye-opening exhibition which isn’t afraid to explore the artistic side of something so practical – and where else would you be able to see 330 trowels suspended like birds in flight?
