2 week drive in France in late September

Jump to last reply

Although a seasoned traveler, I am traveling to France for the first time in September for three weeks. After the first week in Paris, I am renting a car to explore France for two weeks then returning the car to Paris. I speak French fairly well and understand it even better. I will have a travel partner, and I know how to drive a manual shift. I have reserved a Citroen C1 for the drive.

I am wondering about a perimeter driving tour of France. What would you change about this route? These cities are not destinations in themselves (except maybe Avignon) but are the main centers around which we'd like to explore on foot.

Starting from Paris
West to Brest
East to Tours (Loire Valley)
South to Bordeaux
East to Avignon
North to Dijon
End in Paris

The purpose is to go an explorer's pace as well as to park the car and walk around as much as possible. We would like to spend 2-3 nights in one place

What would you recommend or change about this itinerary?

Thanks.
