France geographical features

One of the countries with the most varied landscape in Europe is France. It has sunny beaches, coastal plains, high mountains, hilly regions. The Mediterranean Sea coastline, the French Riviera, on the south including the beautiful beaches and elegant cities is one of the most attractive tourist destinations in the whole world, while the Atlantic coast on the west and north is rather wild, natural landscape stretching from the southern plains towards a more hilly, rocky northern coast with rugged cliffs.

Besides the high mountain ranges of the Alps and Pyrenees, there are other notable mountain ranges, including the Massif Central a range of extinct volcanoes, the Vosges near Germany, the Jura shared with Switzerland, or the hilly Ardennes on the Belgian border. The French Alps is the home of the highest peak in Europe (excluding the Caucasus mountains) reaching 4807 meters right on the border with Italy.

The five major rivers of France are the Loire, the longest, the Rhine on the German border, the Rhône going to the Mediterranean Sea from Lake Geneva, the Seine cutting through Paris, and the Garonne collecting water on the southwest plains from the Massif Central and the Pyrenees.
