We've been to the Dordogne twice. I love the area and want to go back again.

I really didn't say WHY I love the area so much (The Dordogne). But it has to do with fantasy and castles and wonderful food and really approachable people.

No one has mentioned the Alps yet, my favorite place in France.
I love the little village of Bourg d'oisans, my husband loves to cycle in the mountains so we have been to this region several times. When I arrive in BdO, I feel My vacation in France has begun.

celtic, I can see why if one loves nature, and cycling. we visited several times once visiting someone in Gap.
This is where I discovered the french drink, genepi, that's made from herbs gathered in the alps.

I guess I am not a city person, even though I loved Paris, my favorite places in France are the small villages, the mountains and wilder places.

I'm with you Celticharper; my favorite places are the villages and wilder places. For instance, Hiking behind Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert and that area; and many of the towns and villages of the Vaucluse and Les Alpilles.

By the way, on the day that we were in Maussane-les-Alpilles the moulin Jean Marie Cornille was closed. As I faintly recall it was to open much later in the day and we were on our way to meet friends in Arles so couldn't stay. Hopefully, next time we will be luckier.

Tough call. We've visited Paris, Chartres, the Loire Valley, the Languedoc, Provence and the Riviera. And we loved them all.

But if I could only choose one area, it would have to be the Dordogne. I'm a sucker for charming villages, beautiful countryside, historic castles, pre-historic caves, great food & wine and good-hearted people. I just feel comfortable there.

We love the Dordogne...but we also love Languedoc-Roussilon and we'll be visiting again in November to see about finding a place to spend about a year. We aren't looking to move permanently, as we retired to North Carolina and it is just a little bit of heaven. Plus our family has moved down here and if we are ever to have grandchildren, they'll be here.

So. I may have a new favorite place to gush about in the near future!
