10 days in France

Jump to last reply

My husband and I arrive CDG at 8:10a on Thursday, Oct 3 and depart Sunday, Oct. 13.
I would appreciate some input on our itinerary. We plan to spend the majority of our stay in Paris. We would like to do day trips to Giverny and Champagne. We are also considering a 1-2 night trip to the countryside such as Burgandy, Dordogne or the Loire Valley. We traveled to Nice, Provence and Paris for 10 days in April of 2012, so have a handle on the Metro and RER in Paris. We want to see Monmarte, l'orangerie and perhaps revisit musee d'orsay.

My husband wants to go by train directly to our visit to the countryside on the day we arrive so that we return to spend 7 days straight in Paris. We don't travel abroad often, so those who do can weigh in on the feasibility of this.

We stayed in the Latin Quarter in 2012 near the Censir Debauton Metro and the Rue Mofftard. We would like to stay in a 3 star in a different area. Friends have stayed at Hotel de Lutece and Hotel St. Paul Rive Gauche. Hotel de Lutece is booked, so will probably go with other hotel. My husband prefers the hotel over an apartment so we have assistance with our needs and he can practice his French.

I know I need to get the hotels booked ASAP and buy the train ticket and ticket to Champagne houses.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
