France in 7 days - suggestions please

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will only have 7 days for a trip to France. We will be leaving from the Atlanta airport. I am not counting travel time in the 7 days, so we will have 7 full days in France. We have never been to France.

I'm just starting to plan, but will probably go in the off season when prices will be a little more affordable. We enjoy driving through small towns in the country and seeing historical sites, no more than 2 museum visits (per my husband). We would love to see beautiful coastal towns, vineyards, and of course the city of Paris. I'm sure all of this is not possible with only 7 days.

We have points for the flight, but need to be very economical with other expenses (hotel, food). We are not foodies, so we can eat very cheap.

We have only been to Europe one time, back in 2008, with a 14 day trip to Italy. Love it!! Rented a car for a week in Tuscany and a week in Rome. Would love to go back to Italy, but want to see a different place since we don't get to travel a lot. We even considered a cruise to be able to see different places, but my husband loved our Italy trip so much he would like to do the same thing!

Please help with suggestions. We are not locked into France, but we thought it would be a great place to go. Thank you!!
