France in November

Jump to last reply

Hi,

I'm planning a 2 week honeymoon trip for November (first half) and since I've never been to France, I'd love to have it there....I'm unsure about a whole lot of things though..
1. weather
2. Driving around - left wheel driving (since we're from india which has right wheel driving)/ we dont drive much anyway...etc etc
3. how much i can do in 14 days!

I had always imagined a France trip which involves a lot of walking, biking, taking in the countryside, charming cobblestoned village paths with flower beds, lavender fields et al...but I suppose November may limit all or some of the above indulgences! My Giverny plan for instance has now been shelved since Monet's house is closed from Nov to March! So I'm really open to a decent alternative to this...

I understand the weather in november is very unpredictable and ultimately it all comes down to luck and good karma, but I'm not too fussed about chilly nights or a light drizzle/shower. Torrential rain and howling winds however...may be a problem. Any experiences on this?

About driving, neither my fiance nor I drive (i used to, some years ago, but am completely out of practice now) , so looks like we'll be taking the train whever we go....is that realistic given my trip planning below? Or do you reckon we could still take a chance with a car rental for some of the smaller distances (the Chateaux/Mt St Michel...or in Provence)?

Here's an itinerary that i've come up with which i can probably use some help with: Paris, Mt St Michel, Loire Valley and Provence

Planning to start with 3-4 nights in Paris, and then head to Mt St Michel where I can do a night (any suggestions on a charming rustic yet good B&B?) ....

From St Muichel we head to the Chateaux de Loire. Any idea on what a good base would be? I'm told Blois is a decent option. After about 2-3 days at the Chateaux, i'd head down to Avignon...or is Nimes/Aix-en-Provence a better place to base yourself? And what could I explore in that region (since I really have no idea on what to expect in November...)..I was considering Arles.

I would also like to squeeze in a visit to the vineyards..any suggestions? Bordeaux before i get to Provence? We'd like to finish off with another 3 days back in Paris. Alternatively, fly to Rome before heading on home to india, which is a bit off the pattern but may be a welcome break anyway.

Am I totally off the mark here? Any places/villages that I could do instead of any of the above - something I'm missing - Toulouse? Carcassonne? Any pretty little villages in these areas I could visit? Help! :)
