I do believe that France is a beautiful country with a really nice atmosphere. Have you ever been there? I think that you should go because of the nice areas and the nice views. Have you ever though of going to Spain and to Italy too? These tree cultures has something in common and that is the real latin south-european or Mediterranean cloture that is so nice and warm. You also have Greece that gives you a nice archipelago that leaves none marked. I do believe that one also should try to do their best before going to a chateau in France.
