Take a break in France - River Dreaming.

River Dreaming is in the French town of Sainte-Foy-La-Grande in the Gironde, where the Saturday market is one of the best in the whole of France. The town boasts several excellent restaurants featuring delicious Perigord food, and is in the middle of wine country. Saint Emilion and Bergerac are close by, and Bordeaux is an hour away by train. The town also lies on the Vezelay route to Santiago de Compostela. Canoe the river, visit the vineyards, sample the food, go fishing, horseriding, swimming or birdwatching - there are herons, hawks, ducks and swans just below the balcony.
