The French Countryside- a Guide to the Secluded Beauties of Central France

Heading south of Paris you will find yourself among some of the most unique and beautiful towns in the world. Central France is abundant with tiny hamlets, rivers, lakes and fields that any Roamer will adore. These are my pick of the bunch:

1. Bussiere Poitevine

This tiny commune in the Haute-Vienne region will make you feel as though you stepped into a time machine. Make sure you go for a half day walk through the countryside and find some beautiful farm cows! Some of the healthiest in the world!
