I'd choose a farmhouse. I like to be in nature, far away from city crowds and noise. I'd like to read and relax in the countryside.

I'll chose the farmhouse obviously, because on the holidays I need escape from city life in order to restore my energy. I need a silence and peace also enjoy natural world.

I think I would choose a farmhouse, because I will escape from all things there for a days without internet and with my friends or family and that's enough for me.

I prefer to live in a city flat full of modern facilities. But sometimes I want to come back countryside to enjoy the fresh air and the quiet ambiance and many other activities, for example: walking around the neighborhood, going to church prayer, meeting old friends, having parties with my maternal family, or simply just talking with my parents about my studying and my life.
