Map of France

France is divided into 95 departments (not including overseas departments). These are then grouped into the official regions shown on the map above. Sometimes vacation rental descriptions refer to the department and not to the region. For example, the Dordogne is a department within the Aquitaine region and Lot is a department within the Midi-Pyrénées region.
