Where to go next?

Our European travel experiences to date include 12 days driving around Ireland, a week driving around Wales/London/south of England, two separate one-week trips to Paris. We've loved every place we've been, have never had a bad experience. We're starting to think about our next trip, but not sure where to head. Married couple, late forties/early 50's, reasonably adventurous. Interested in Tuscany, south of France, Holland, Spain, Ireland or Scotland. Iceland is also intriguing, as are the Mediterranean islands. Enjoy big cities for a day or two, then like to get out in the countryside. Speak only passable French, in addition to English; am trying to learn a little Italian. Prefer to book our own mid-range accomodations, small hotels/farmhouse B&Bs with an occasional splurge.

Where would you suggest for our next 7-10 day adventure? We're open to any time of year, but our past trips have been in March/April. We also love it when we're way off the beaten track -- maybe the only Americans in a restaurant or hotel.

Thanks for any suggestions!
