France for a month in 2017

Jump to last reply

Hi ... my wife and I are planning a trip to France for a month during 2017. We've been to Paris once for a few days and so one week will most likely be spent going back there. Aside from this, what are the recommendations on areas to see and stay? June will most likely be the month we go and also overlap into the first few days of July for the Tour de' France. I'd very much like to see one or two stages of the race.

Budget ... is $8k-$10k a realistic budget for the month?

Interests ... we love the food, the wine and local cuisine. Outdoor cafe's, art and local cultural aspects are favorites. Cycling ... I'd definitely like to rent equipment and do some local day trips-rides.

Time frame ... June thru a few days into July

Favorites ... daily markets, outdoor cafes, concerts, bookstores, good walks, good restaurants, museums and local culture.

We've read some from this blog, and it seems to fit our style: http://slowlanetravel.com/

We're thinking to stay at least a week in various locations, but haven't done enough planning or research yet to decide where. Most likely we'll rent thru airbnb, vrbo or such. We do not plan to eat out every meal ... perhaps 4-6 times a week. My wife is an excellent cook, so we can save some with eating in.

As mentioned we'd appreciate thoughts, recommendations and suggestions on all of the above. Thanks in advance.

Ciao - Dorm
