France Regions Map
Plan your travel with our map of the French regions
France is divided into 22 regions. The regions are further broken down into departements. The France regions map below shows the French spelling of the regions; the English is easy to figure out. Bourgogne becomes Burgundy, for example, the famous wine region. "Centre" is really the central Loire region, where tourists flock to see the interesting chateaux shown on our Chateaux Map.
