I' in the early planning stages of a trip to France next September. Already feeling overwhelmed. My firsts as considering using Home thought was to do a week in Paris, then take the train to Avignon and stay somewhere there for a week renting a car to tour the countryside. I thought maybe make a base in Isle de la Soeur and then take the train back to Paris for the flight home. I know from reading that people try and do too much so I was wondering if that sounds doable. I did think we should see Normandy and maybe Mont St. Michel but not sure either of those are day trips from Paris. Maybe better to take two days to do that and spend the other days solely in Paris doing maybe Versailles or something close. I was considering using Home Away to find accommodations having had good luck with that in the States but maybe a small hotel would be better? I'm not much of a museum person, more of a foodie and think I would enjoy just getting the feel of the country as best as one can in two weeks. Any advice appreciated.
