BEST OF FRANCE ROAD TRIP IN 30 DAYS- MAY 15

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 4 from Mumbai, India; which includes 2 daughters 18 and 20 and we 2 architects around 50 years old; planning to explore France in 4 weeks by road in June, starting from Paris in an anti-clockwise loop. We have been to Paris, twice earlier. We are comfortable with 25 days road trips and have done it earlier in Scotland, USA and Canada.

I had posted a question earlier on Fodors which was more of a wish list.
We love Architecture, culture, nature.. would like to see some small villages, picturesque routes, architectural marvels.
Have been studying France for last 2 months. Have seen many you tube clips and have also seen Rick Steves Itinerary..
Preliminary Itinerary is as follows;
Land at CDG Paris- rent a car and drive out of Paris..
1. St. Michel 2
2. Loire valley- Amboise 3 or 4( Chamboard, Chenonceux, Cheverny, Saumur, Tours)
3. Sarlat (or some other place in Dordogne) – 3 D Pretty villages-Roque Gageac, Rocamadour
4. Aix-en Provance- 5 ( I loved this part in the clips and photos- Gordes, Le Baux, Rousillion, Senaque, Avignon, Pont Du Guard))- Marseille, Cassis
5. Nice- 4 D - Grasse, Eze, Monte carlo
6. Annecy – 5 (Including Chamonix-Mont blanc)
7. Paris 4( See Paris by Public transport- i may split this as 1 at the beginning of the trip)
Fly back...
I can still add 3 to 4 days to this itinerary..
Places I wanted to see but left out...
a. Bordeaux
b. Carcassonne
c.. Toulouse + ( Bilbao, Spain- as this was really tough to cover in our Spain tour)
d. Beaune, Colmar, Strasbourg, Dijon, Reims
e. Have also given up my dream to see lavender bloom in July as it would be too hot
Drive between Nice and Annecy is a bit Long... Should I break it..
Please advice on the itinerary, places, hotels/ B & B, with character and help me fine tune the plan to get the best out of it....
