Other than Paris and the palace of Versailles and its extensive gardens:
The Loire Valley and its wonderful variety of stunning castles of various periods, its fortresses, and the gothic architecture of its churches.
Alsace and its lovely small towns dripping with flowers and full of quaint medieval style architecture.
The Dordogne valley with its variety of sights that range from prehistoric caves with paintings, picturesque river gorges, Rocamadour abbey clinging to rock faces, more than 1000 castles and lovely villages, the most striking being Sarlat and Beynac.
Provence which encompasses a number of picturesque hill villages as well as the coast of the French Riviera, fields of flowers and lavender to make perfume, the near-by mouth of the Rhone with the Camargue estuary, its wild horses and pink flamingos. There is large number of Roman vestiges which include arenas and gigantic aqueduct, and, higher up the river, Avignon with its massive medieval papal palace unique in France.
Brittany, its spectacular ragged coast line, old villages, and on the cusp with Normandy the amazing Mont Saint-Michel.
You can get an idea of what these places look like by clicking on the regions I have suggested on the map that appears on this reliable website:
