Expat who chose to escape the American rat race and focus on quality of life in France. I can work anywhere I have an internet connection, so I used to travel a lot. Now I prefer staying in my gorgeous region in southern Burgundy. I have lived in France for more than 20 years, about a dozen in Paris and the rest in southern Burgundy.
I tend to prefer low-key, charming BnBs to hotels. I would rather linger for several hours over a good meal, soaking up the local ambiance and people-watching than rush around from museum to museum just to check it off a list and say "I've been there."
My list of favourite places is not in order of preference.
