South of France anytime for me.
That is a large area.
The Cote d'Azure is great for holidays but I wouldn't want to live there.
I love Provence and the Alpes Maritime.
Also the Camargue and if you go West to the Pyrenees and close to the the Spanish border there is the wonderful town of Collioure.
Yes, you have the stats, but there are lies, damned lies and statistics.
Norway, Ireland and Switzerland in the top three?
You are having a laugh!
I have been to all those countries and would not live in any of them.
Out of the tnree, Ireland would be my favourite but the weather is awful.
I see that the UK is above the USA.... I doubt that too.
I reckon we are about equal and both above Ireland!
