France Road Trip for 15 days in end of April 2016

Jump to last reply

We have 15 days to explore some parts of France in end of April 2016. We are a family of 3 members, kid is 8 years old. We like to travel by road, explore the country side & stop at places we like.

I had done a shorter road trip in France in 2000. We rented a car and started from Paris and visited Caen, Normandy, Mont St Michel, few wineries & chateaus. That time, we didn't book any hotels and had complete flexibility. We stayed wherever we reached in the evening.

This time we want to cover the French Riviera (Nice, Cannes, Monaco & surroundings), the French Alps (Chamonix, Annecy) and if possible proceed towards Geneva, Interlaken. Finally the last 3-4 days will be at Paris before we fly back.

The planning is in early stages. Few questions :-

a) Need inputs on the places we have planned to visit, possible halt locations etc. I plan to prepare the draft itinerary in a short while.

b) Car Rental - Based on my research in the forum, I plan to take TGV from CDG to Avignon, explore the riviera for 2 days using public transport and then rent a car to explore surroundings and proceed to Chamonix. Return the car once I am back at Paris. Is this good enough?

c) I want to keep the trip schedule flexible. Will hotel booking on the go work out or will be much expensive?

Thanks,
Rajat
