Rural France

Rural France, or La France Profonde (Deep France) refers to the parts of France which are not heavily populated and are not very near big towns and cities. These areas of France are sometimes the best, as they can really give you a sense of what the French people are like outside of the big settlements, and the welcome you receive while staying here is fantastic. You can visit so many places and do so many interesting things in rural France, and the lifestyle is much more relaxed than in Paris for example. There are many quaint little towns and villages that each have their own feel and aura, and most of these have an interesting history too. The campsites and caravan parks are usually very nice and the self catering cottages are mostly very old yet very beautiful, some being old farmhouses and annexes.
