Hello readers! You are all probably familiar with the children’s story about the Town Mouse and the Country Mouse. “The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse” is one of the classic Aesop’s Fables that describes the difference between two types of people in the world: country folk and city folk. For those of you who are Country Mice, or are Town Mice who like to fantasize about the simplicity of life in the country (like this writer), here are four scenic locations to dream about:

 

1. How amazing would it be to live on this vineyard in the South of France?

The South of France is an ideal location for your future dream home. You can be safely tucked away from the action on the French countryside, perhaps on a vineyard like this one, and still be a short car ride away from the beach. What could be better?

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. I bet this cottage in Scotland is what heaven feels like.

Scotland is a beautiful country full of adorable little spots like this one. It’s country mouse heaven. Wake up in the morning. Go outside. Hello, mountains!

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Hey there, Tuscany.

Can you imagine casually having this as the view off your terrace? This scenery could not be more perfect. All you have to do is travel down to central Italy to a magical place called Tuscany.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. How about this cozy cottage by the sea in Maine?

You don’t need to go too far to find scenic solitude. Here is a beautiful seaside cottage in the good old US of A. Travel up to Maine and find a cozy little nesting spot for your dream home.
