Family trip to France - advice needed please

Jump to last reply

HI there - I have found these forums to be very helpful but am now so confused that I was hoping that I could get some help. We are travelling from Australia to France for approximately 5 weeks over Dec/Jan with our 4 kids (aged 12,11,8 & 6) . This is our first OS trip as a family. My husband loved France when he was following the Rugby World Cup 4 years ago, particularly the Provence region and this is the main reason for going. This is the only time that we can travel but being from Australia, experiencing the European winter will certainly be an experience the kids will never forget!

So far I have booked accomm in London (6 nights), Paris (6 nights) and Beaune (4 nights). We were going to head to Meribel for a White Christmas but found that we had to stay for a week and it was going to be quite expensive particularly for a family who have only skiied once before.

So....have made enquires then at Vaison La Romaine (and use this as a base for approx 10 days) Is this too long? Then head to Sarlat and explore the Dordogne for 5 days. I have absolutely no idea whether this is too far to travel in one day. I had read about Carcassonne too. I am also then stuck with what to do for another 7 days before we fly back to Australia (out of Paris) - Bordeaux/Toulouse....Not sure. Any local advice would be warmly received.
