August/Sept. Bordeaux, Burgundy,Champagne , Village recommendations.

Jump to last reply

So excited we've finally settled on our next European adventure. We've been awaiting the arrival of our first grand daughter (7 weeks old now <3 ) and the 'announcement of another grand child on its way. This will be a much shorter trip than normal, we don't want to miss too much of the baby excitement. :-) We will have 3 weeks, August 20-Sept. 9.

We've been to Europe many times, we've decided to spend 3 weeks in the areas we have previously missed in France. Flights are booked with FF points, B/class Singapore airlines. Brisbane, Singapore....Dusseldorf, (purely due to available flights) we will collect a car from here.

The plan is to drive from Dusseldorf to Azay-le-Rideau (just outside Tours, due to this village holding such lovely memories for us) with one night 'on the road' and two in the village.
4 nights Bordeaux
The next 3 nights may be spent with 1 'on the road' and 2 in San Sebastian (random I know, again amazing memories, but may want to allow extra days in Bordeaux &/or Burgundy instead).
3 nights Champagne region,
1 night 'on the road'
1 Dusseldorf before flight home.

Just to clarify, the 'nights on the road' are our buffer nights, we love driving so may not need to stop or may come across somewhere we just want to stop. Anyone who has followed any of our trips on here will know that the driving section of this trip is not a problem, we thoroughly enjoy it.

So, I'm really interested to hear your thoughts and suggestions. We like to avoid (day visits only) city's and love staying in smaller villages in inns or b&b's. We 'discovered' Azay-le-Rideau quite by accident and 5+years on its still one of our favorite memories. So if anyone can suggest some lovely spots to stay for a few nights in each region, that would be awesome.
