3 sisters, aged 55 to 68, spending 9 or 10 days in France after visiting Switzerland. We will be taking the train from Geneva, but might rent a car for France outside of Paris.. We plan to spend about 5 nights in Paris. The Loire Valley has been suggested as another destination. We like great scenery, castles, cathedrals, historic places, food and wine. One of us is a little worried about the French reputation for rudeness. One of us speaks a little French, but it is rusty. None of us has visited France previously but this is not the first European trip.

I am wondering if we should spend most if not all of our nights in Paris and see what else we can with day trips. However, it would be fun to soak in a little provincial culture. and perhaps we could do that by staying in a smaller more intimate place for some of the trip.

Suggestions?
