French countryside/wine country

Jump to last reply

I am planning a visit to France in the Summer of 2016. One week in Paris, followed by one week ... where? I have a picture in my head, and I'm hoping you all can tell me if it exists, and if so, where. Provence? Burgundy?

A guest house on a working vineyard, comfortable accommodations, perhaps even a pool. A beautiful outdoor table where we can drink the fruits of the vineyard, and eat the local produce and traditional French preparations. An estate where we can enjoy the setting, the wine, the food, and just relax. If not a vineyard, a farm.

Agriturismo is very big in Italy, but I've seen very little on-line regarding France. What I've seen is more "self-catering" than I'm interested in. I want that elusive combination of rustic and luxurious. We travel primarily for food and local flavor. That's consideration #1. I have no regional preference. The experience is what matters most, and we'll go where that experience is.

As always, I appreciate the input of the Fodor's community.
