Free Gorgeous Vintage Maps of France

Antique Maps of France to Download

France is a special place for me and my family. I spent many childhood holidays in France. Visiting relatives in Paris, Normandy, and the South. That’s why I decided to collect some vintage maps of France for my own collection.
Both my aunt and sister in laws have second homes in France. Another reason for this collection of vintage maps of France was for I needed some for making personalized Christmas presents.
I’m going to print a couple of them as a personalized map pillows, for a Christmas gift. Also, my aunt has requested that I make my Uncle a personalized map glass tray for his coins using a map of France featuring the location of their house.
However, I think many of these maps are so lovely that they would look great simply printed out and framed to hang on the walls.

Bonjour Claire .... Thank you for the opportunity to download these wonderful old maps. The Bouches du Rhone area in Southern France is of particular interest to me as my ancestors were winemakers from that region. It is so interesting to see how everything has changed through the centuries from that first map in 1483 ... Once again ....... Merci, merci beaucoup ..... Di (Australia)
