France but not Paris trip

Jump to last reply

Well, it is finally happening. I will be retiring at the end of the year and just scored 2 open jaw ff tickets flying into CDG mid April and out of Zurich mid May. At last, a trip not bound by a 2 week vacation. In between those dates we will fly to Israel on our own penny for a couple of weeks, so the flights will be US-CDG-Tel Aviv-Zurich-US. From Zurich we will follow the plans that we had to abort last June - that is drive down to Lake Como for a few days and then back to Zurich (no ff available from Milan - US).

I am thinking of spending 5 days in France, perhaps 6 not counting travel days and since we have never been to the Dordogne, perhaps that would be a good place to spend that time. Our interest will be smaller towns and villages, history and architecture. The plan is to rent a car at CDG and return it there. Where would you recommend as a first night stop on the way - I do not want to drive too far while jet lagged, no more than an hour or two.

StCirq - I especially value your input on this.
