City Mouse or Country Mouse

As I’m sometimes wont to do, this weekend I found myself daydreaming about jetting off to France. I don’t know why I do this to myself, but what can I say? Daydreaming about perfect vacations is the ultimate escape (well, second only to actually going on the vacation!).

This particular daydream of course ended up with me wondering what kind of places are currently for sale in France, so I started searching on random French real estate sites to see what kind of fun inspiration I could find.

Then I found myself in a conundrum. If I had the cash, would I spend it on a chic, metropolitan apartment in Paris? Or indulge in a remote, idyllic country getaway? What do you think? Are you a city mouse or a country mouse?

A city mouse might dwell in a place like this…

Whereas the country mouse might find themselves curled up in digs like this…

I think I know the best solution. Paris for full-time living; country for the weekend getaways. Perfect!
