4.0 of 5 bubbles based on 4 votes

Chateaus, medieval villages, fortresses and prehistoric cave drawing equals the Southern France countryside. Nothing more picturesque and memorable than roaming the southern France countryside and visiting the quaint towns, cobblestone streets and gracious people of Southern France. Brave the roads and the round abouts, rely on viamichelin directions, but be aware they are not perfect, because the small, very small, sometimes miniscule roads are LARGELY spectacular but not listed on the directions. Don't miss the local town markets and don't blink while you are driving you might miss an ancient ruin, church or tiny town. If you are brave take a drive at night and notice every important point of interest they are always LIT up, even in the middle of nowhere. Would I go back, yep, I would go back to live!!! and leave behind commercial AMERICA.
