France Itinerary - Dordogne, Loirre, Normandy, Paris

Jump to last reply

Would like to have your feedback on my really really really rough preliminary itinerary

My wife and I are planning our first trip to France in either May or June next year. We will also be bringing along our by then 1 year old child. I know, I know, we shouldn't bring our infant child along to really enjoy France but there are no other alternatives and besides, we would like to instill our love for travelling in her at a very young age.

Originally, I was overly ambitious and tried to fit in Provence and the Riviera into our 2.5 week itinerary but I knew we were trying to do too much. Anyway, here's the trimmed down itinerary I've mapped out so far:

Day 1: Arrive Paris, depart straight to Bordeaux
Day 2-6: Sarlat (or any of the other surrounding cities: Beynac?)
Day 7: Limoges
Day 8-9: Amboise
Day 10: Mont St Michel (My wife absolutely wants to stay a night in MSM)
Day 11-12: Bayeux
Day 13-18: Paris

I intend on renting a car in Bordeaux on day 2 for our journey to the Dordogne region and will drop the car off after we're done in Bayeux. Day 7 is a one day stop in Limoges so that we can break our travel time as I understand that the drive from Sarlat to Amboise can take around 4-5 hours. We're open to alternative suggestions on a town to overnight in.
