Rural France by trainHi,
I am travelling with a friend to France this July, I will be spending a week in Paris, and then hoping to spend a week in Rural france. Unfortunately we do not have a drivers license and will be travelling by train. We understand we will not be able to get a full experience travelling this way, so we are happy to compromise for something a little bit more populated.
We are interested in budget to mid-range accommodation, easily accessible by train, and good food and wine!
If you have any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated,

2Tell us what you mean with rural France, otherwise it's impossible to answer. Do you mean Struthof, Oyonnax, Vizzavona, Valloire, Sospello, Les Chapieux, Solenzara, St. Jean de Luz, Raedersdorf or which place?

4I went to a lot of places in France by train. My favourites were Concarneau & Annecy. Not exactly rural but not giant cities either.
If you go somewhere like Avignon by train you can then take organised day tours into the countryside, I did the Van Gogh day tour and went to a lot of places without having to worry about a car of my own.
Likewise in Tour you can be taken around to the chateau through the countryside in a minivan.
My point being that if you dont have a car you dont have to worry about a car. And you can drink wine during the day.
