France and Barcelona

Jump to last reply

We are an active retired Australian couple plannig a trip to France, including Barcelona, in late April for 4 weeks, arriving and departing by air in Paris. As we had a trip to France some years ago and spent quite sometime in Paris, this time we want to focus on regional France. On that previous trip we also visited the Cote d' Azur and don't feel the need to return there.

Our interest is in natural beauty, old villages, chateaus, local foods and wines. We like to base ourselves and take day trips on local transport to regional areas of interest.

Our current thinking is that we might try to travel down the western side of France taking in places of interest, then visiting Barcelona for 3-4 days, returning to Paris by the eastern side of the country.

We plan to travel by train on a rail pass and prefer to stay at least 2-3 nights in each location staying in hotels/B&B's or apartments for a possible longer stay.

Could anyone please give comments to assist us with more detailed planning?
