5So I know it's a stupid answer but disclaimer: it's fresh memory.
Last night a friend wanted to cycle home after some glasses of HEMA wine. Since the date of entrance of possessing alcool test equipment on French territory has been postponed I could offer her an alcool test with one tester out of the set, that's mandatory to have on your bicycle (or car?) starting 1 March 2013.
It proved to be necessary NOT to ride. After that we could continue a cosy night and the guestroom again proved its necessity.
Now I'm not sure it's also for bicycles and not only for cars.

6pbudny, by now you probably think some of the posters here are an immature bunch. and in this case i tend to agree with you.
I think it's a great way to phrase the old question 'give me some ideas'. But you've done it in a way that expresses an interest in our personal views and experiences. Good for you.
I'll be happy to respond in lots of detail, when I have more time tomorrow (and when I have seen that you have come back to engage in a 2-way conversation because i don;t want to pour my heart out for a first-time poster who doesn't return...)

7Hi - and welcome to Thorn Tree.
Going to a wine producers. They planted the vines, right through to bottling and labelling their products.
We got p**sed just walking through the fermentation area, without drinking a drop ! !
The Loire Region. In summer, it is just divine. Lots more, but just a couple from me.

9After my stupid answer in #6 (acknowledged there and also recognisable by the initial word ´So´) and whatever reason you may have for this (IMO senseless) query modus, some personnal highlights:
-hiking east of the Lake Annécy and French Ardennes
-cycling the river Doubs - and because it was foggy not a real highlight: Mont Ventoux
-walking the Porte de la lune in Bordeaux
-town and panorama Domme, Dordogne
-roaming in the Lubéron
and number one: Christmas/New Year time in a remote hamlet in the Dordogne after a storm at millennium change: no electricity, only tv, fridge and two lamps on an emergency aggregator. So we could only see the Eiffel Tower New Years lights.
Memorable, but luck of the draw...
Just pray for this situation.
