France: advice on where to go with young kids

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning 6 days of family vacation before we have to be in Italy for a wedding (with an additional week of travel with family in Italy).

We fly into Paris arriving at 8:30am and basically have that day plus 5 more in France. We are at a loss as to where to go since everyone keeps telling us amazing things about basically everywhere in France (Provence comes up a lot). Neither of us have ever spent much time in France but we got great mileage tickets to Paris and our son has spent his first year in French Immersion Kindergarten and asked to go so we said why not?

Our kids are 6 and 2.5 and are very well travelled. Having done a lot of international travel with young kids our preference is at least 2 nights (ideally more) in one spot and not being in big cities (we are leaning towards NOT spending anytime in Paris).

So basically our two questions are 1) where to go (yes, I realize this is a big question!) and 2) how to get there. We are already at CDG in Paris so perhaps flying to Marseille (for example) is not a bad idea? Also open to trains but would rather not spend our entire first day driving a rental car (we will be pretty tired upon arrival).

Thanks in advance!!
