Dreaming of France -- Where in France Would You Live?


Please join this weekly meme. Grab a copy of the photo above and link back to An Accidental Blog. Share with the rest of us your passion for France. Did you read a good book set in France? See a movie? Take a photo in France? Have an adventure? Eat a fabulous meal or even just a pastry? Or if you're in France now, go ahead and lord it over the rest of us. We can take it.
For some people, Paris is the penultimate place to live. We love Paris, but when we imagine settling in France some day, we don't picture our lives in Paris. We think about a little village.
For the longest time, we imagined that Provence would be our home some day, but Provence has become so popular that the price to live there has become extravagant.
We've begun looking at other areas and think that Languedoc-Roussillon might be a good match.
The climate looks to be very similar to Provence and I hadn't realized that we have actually visited a part of Languedoc-Roussillon.
It was when we took our great bike trip in the south of France. We left Avignon and headed out of Provence and into Languedoc-Roussillon to cross the Pont du Gard and end that day in Nimes.

Of course, before we decide, we'll need to visit a few more times to explore. Sometimes, the exploration can be the best part.
Thanks for joining in with Dreaming of France. Please visit each other's blogs to enjoy other snippets of France.

Am I rich enough to have multiple homes-I would keep a winter house in Paris and a summer home somewhere in Annecy.

I like France a lot and my husband is definitely a Francophile. We visited Alsace for the first time this year but I'm not sure I would choose to live there even though it is so pretty. My hubs would like to live in the south of France, I would have to flee north during the hot summer months if we did move there.

What a wonderful post and wonderful dream. Yes, I'd like to be rich enough to have the in-town and in-country! As long as we're dreaming! I also loved it north, near Honfleur and other Normandy towns. Sigh.

Not playing along this week but looking forward to doing some visiting!

I would have two places, one in Paris and one in the south of France.

I haven't visited enough places to say. But as of today, I would say Paris being that I am a city gal.

Can I have two places please? Paris would be one, with a little apartment but I would love to live nearer to the Italian border as well . and be near the sea. Don't want much do I ?
