Driving in France near Bastille Day weekend

Jump to last reply

Hello! We are planning a family trip to France in July – 2 adults and an 8 year old, our first trip to France. We fly in to Paris on July 5, and out of Nice on July 19. After a few days in Paris (3 nights), we plan to rent a car. I am busy researching and planning our itinerary now. I had hoped to do a couple of days in Brittany (2 nights), then the Dordogne (3 nights, some trepidation about the crowds) and Provence (5 nights), and finally last afternoon/night in Nice.

After plotting this all out, I realize that this itinerary would have us driving from Sarlat to Arles on Saturday, July 13 – a holiday Saturday! Everything I’ve read says that’s not a good idea (I had planned to do the Massif route, not the autoroute). So, I am trying to adjust the itinerary, maybe dropping Brittany, spending an extra night in France, going straight to the Dordogne, and traveling from Sarlat to Arles on Friday the 12th. I am interested in any general advice, as well as this specific question – which would be a better driving day – Friday July 12th, or Monday, July 15th?

Thanks very much for your help!
