Living in France: Would You Rather Be in Paris or in the Countryside?

For someone who is such a homebody, lately I've been thinking a lot about what it'd be like to up and move to France. (It gives me butterflies just thinking about it!) I can't decide, though, if I'd rather live in the city or an hour away somewhere in the countryside. Paris has the Eiffel Tower and people who take dressing up—even if it's just to run out to buy some bread—very seriously. The countryside has rustic charm and quiet roads (straight out of the movies, don't you think?) for long afternoon walks. I've never been to France so both sound amazing. 

Have you been? Where would you rather live?

I've been to Paris and even though it wasn't my favorite place that I visited in Europe I'd probably chose Paris over the countryside. I love the country,I am from Vacaville after all :), but if I had to live in France I'd want to be really IN it and Paris would be the place to be I think!

Here is a South of France perspective - my brother kept a blog of his adventures there:
