Are you planning your summer vacation? Maybe a slow vacation in Gascony, France, could be the thing.
Slow vacation in Gascony

“If you stay in the perfectly distressed bed-and-breakfast Le Consulat, in Auch, with its threadbare Persian rugs, crisp linens, and simple baguette breakfast served at a communal farm table, you will wake up to church bells and imagine what it might have been like to travel through Europe 50 years ago”, she writes.
