Some would argue that France is never prettier than in the autumn... and after seeing this set of pictures you might be inclined to agree.

It's hard to believe, but autumn is well and truly upon us in France. And as the song goes, all the leaves are brown and the sky is (often) grey.

But that doesn't mean that the country – and especially the countryside – isn't radiant with colour. Here are some of our favourite snaps from every corner of France. Enjoy.
