Burgundy and Loire in 4 days - folly?

Jump to last reply

We will be traveling from Switzerland into France in August and would love to split 4 days between Burgundy and the Loire Valley before proceeding to Paris.

My thought would be to take the train to Dijon, rent a car and explore that area for 2 days, then drive west to the Loire Valley for 2 days of chateaux hopping. Would that stretch us too thin? Is the drive between the two scenic/pleasant? How long would it take us?

Another option would be to travel from Switzerland directly to the Loire (train via Paris) and stay there the full 4 days.

Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you!
