France in December... please help!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are going to France for our honeymoon over the Christmas/New Years holidays (December 16 - January 3). We're on a bit of a tighter budget but are not backpacking this time around - want it to be a bit more relaxing/nicer, trying instead to base ourselves in each of three or four places for 4-5 days each.

We fly in and out of Paris and plan to spend our first 4-5 days there, with possibly a day trip to the Champagne region within those days - is that worthwhile at that time of year? Many champagne houses appear to still be open... After Paris, we're basing ourselves in Strasbourg - Christmas markets and Christmas eve/day in a castle. Then...??? We wanted to head to Provence, possibly base ourselves in Aix-en-Provence and maybe rent a car for a few days to see what we can in about 5 days before heading back to Paris for New Year's Eve. Our travel agent friend thinks Provence will be dead with not much open and happening at the end of December. Is it better to go somewhere else in southern France for five days (perhaps closer to Nice), or maybe stay a bit closer to Paris... perhaps from Strasbourg head to Colmar, Basel (Switzerland), Lyon and then back to Paris? We know the weather will not be "warm" no matter where we go and we're not really skiiers but, given that it'll be winter, we don't mind the idea of relaxing in a ski chalet sipping hot chocolate somewhere ;) Otherwise we are foodies more than drinkers - wine connoisseurs we are not, although we do appreciate a nice glass here and there - and are choosing Europe over a beach honeymoon, if that's any indication of our "travel sense". Please help! Whatever ideas you can provide would be GREATLY appreciated!
