Airfares are on sale for this summer. Staying in a vacation rental is less expensive than a hotel and you get more for your money – a whole house or apartment where you can spread out, settle in and live like a local for a week or two. Maybe it is time to think about a week or two in the French countryside?
Walking out to the village cafe in the morning, exploring nearby historic towns and villages, maybe doing a nice countryside walk in the late afternoon before returning to your village to have a glass of wine on your terrace and think about shopping for dinner. Sounds pretty darned nice to me.
