I have to admit, I'm not entirely sure what the "French lifestyle" actually is!, but I picture waking up in a gorgeous French villa, riding my bicycle into the town in the morning to collect croissants for breakfast and bread for lunch, enjoying a lovely, long breakfast, followed by a long lunch a few hours later (with a glass or two of wine, of course!) and then a nap in the afternoon, followed by dinner.
I know this a fantasy and that the majority of French people don't live like this everyday, but it sure would be nice to experience this for a few months in one's lifetime! I think it's the simplicity that I am drawn to and being able to enjoy the scenery, food, wine and quietness that the French countryside has to offer.
I think this will definitely be added to my bucket list!
