Suggestions for 1 week in the countryside with little children (August)

Jump to last reply

We are trying to put together a last minute plan for about 1 week in the South of France (we've only been to Paris before) in mid August. Some details:

-2 little children with us. We don't have to do any kid-centric activities
-Not much interest in beach time
-We can to fly into Toulouse/Bordeaux/Lyon/elsewhere and can fly out of Paris/Geneva if needed
-Taking the TGV would be fun, but willing to rent a car as well, would like to keep longest drive to a maximum of 2 hours
-Interested in countryside, relaxation and outdoor activities, local food (casual not fancy), food markets, wine, some culture/history, but no interest in beaches and crowded cities/towns
-Would like to stay in a small village/farm/countryside type setting, but would like to have food and restaurants within walking or quick driving distance
-We don't have any boxes we need to check and would like to keep it low key and relaxed

I'd appreciate some pointing in the right direction. Places to visit, airports and where to base ourselves.
