There are some places in France where the destination is less important than the actual journey; beautiful roads that are just wonderful to take. The road along Lake Annecy is both a challenge and a reward for cycling enthusiasts. Meanwhile on the French Riviera, the Grande Corniche, which has inspired so many filmmakers, is best enjoyed behind the wheel of a vintage car. As for the Passage du Gois in Vendée, a submersible road connecting the Atlantic island of Noirmoutier to the mainland, it is also used for shellfish picking on foot. But watch out for high water!
