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.

D-Day Beaches and Memorials

Besides war memorials, Normandy has some great food (must be the world's best butter) and includes lots of impressionist's landscapes, including Monet's Garden in Giverny. See: Normandy Map

Chateaux of the Loire region

Languedoc: Cathar Country, Rennes Le Chateau and Taste Blanquette de Limoux Sparkling Wine

Like Castles? Head on over to Cathar Country and visit some of the best in the Aude Departement of the Languedoc region. See our Aude Map and Travel Resources.

Midi Pyrenees: Prehistoric Caves that are not in the Dordogne

See: Tarascon, the French Pyrenees, and the paths to Prehistory for more information.

The Aquitane: Bordeaux Wine and Lascaux II

The famous Dordogne departement is within the Aquitaine region. The Perigord Noir is a part of the Dordogne that I recommend. Read more: Dordogne Maps and Travel Planner.
