18 Days in France 31 May - 17 Jun

Jump to last reply

My family (me, my wife, daughter 21 and son 20) will be spending 18 days in France this summer. The flights are booked and a rental car reserved for 12 of the days.

We are considering starting in Paris for 3 full days and then have 4 days open. We hope to rent an apartment in Avignon for a week and then drive back up to Paris - stopping along the way for one night (Chartes possibly). We will have one last night in Paris before departing back to the States. What help do I need? A suggestion for what to do between Paris and Avignon and some ideas for day trips around Avignon.

For the days between Paris and Avignon - we we considering the Alps. We love to hike/trek and to see this area would be great. Not sure if we need Mont Blanc, but the area around Argentiere looks incredible.

As for Avignon, the city of course, but also Arles, the Gorge du Verdon, Aix-en-Provence, a beach town. So many options. I would appreciate any guidance or suggestions.
