Burgundy and Paris Trip--How Can We Make It Easier On Ourselves?

Jump to last reply

Last time we went to France, we rented a car at CDG and drove to the Dordogne, then south to Provence, then back up to Paris. We had a great time, but we can't do that anymore and want to plan a trip that's less taxing physically and less stressful. To start with, we realize we can take a train to Dijon or ? in Burgundy (after resting a night in a hotel that's easy to get to from CDG), rent a car when we get there, then drive to a yet to be determined charming b&b, maybe near Beaune, which we liked when we passed through before, and that would be our base, so we wouldn't be moving around as much. Then, after week or so, we'd return the car, take the train back to Paris, cab to a hotel, and enjoy the city for a few days. But are there services we can buy that make it even easier, like a car service or a travel service that would just pick us up and plop us down at the right train or hotel or terminal? It's negotiating the airport, arriving and departing, and getting ourselves on the right train when jetlagged that worry me the most. I've got some physical issues that tire me out easily, but we still want to go back to France! Most of you guys are such energetic travellers that I don't know if this will ring a bell with anyone, but we'd be grateful for any thoughts.
