Preposition dans or à la campagne

À or Dans le campagne when do you use à la campagne, when do you say dans la campagne?

Bonjour Judy,

"à la campagne" is used to be precise: You are renting a holiday home in a precise location.

"dans la campagne" is far less precise: Marie is walking in the countryside but not at a precise place.

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
