Recommendation for a Charming Village? Maybe France?

My suggestion is the town of Dieulefit, in the Drôme Provençal. It's a charming small town mostly known to the French, and in a very picturesque area. Another possibility a bit farther south: Bedoin. Good for cycling and the market.

This is wonderful information, I really appreciate all of the ideas and recommendations! FrenchM, loved the links too. I think I'm now torn between the Brittany area, Carcassonne and Annecy.

hetismij2, I was thinking France, but if you have suggestions for Netherlands or Belgium, I would love to hear about it. I'm from Canada, but my family tree on my dad's side of the family traces back to Rotterdam. I have been to Holland once, but would like to go back someday.

Thanks wunderbar2. I'm glad you enjoyed my reports and I hope you enjoy Brittany as much as I do. Just to add a little something different if you do go to Brittany and happen to be in the vicinity I recommend you look at these links and check these places out. I am definitely making visits to these two sites on my next trip to Brittany:




If you have any other questions I'll see if I can answer them and I'm sure others can help as well.

toontown - No matter what you decide I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

In addition to Bilbo's suggestions you could consider Naarden, Deventer, Kampen, Harlingen, Enkhuizen or larger places like Amersfoort, Apeldoorn, Breda or Zwolle.

Arles, France is beautiful and small, walkable, and the region around it it beautiful. The food and wine are fabulous!
