France with a toddler - help, please!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are supposed to travel to France for 9 days in mid-October with our 16-month-old. This is decision time -- where to go, for how long. (Also last point at which we can just cancel the whole thing!) Any advice would be much appreciated. (fyi, I did check the forums for other posts on this topic, and other people's circumstances were a little different.)

We're going to try and travel light-ish. A travel crib is probably unavoidable, and we'll need a stroller probably (tho I'm tempted to just take the baby carrier). No car seat, so I'm thinking we should stay in cities/towns and defer my dream of spending a week in a little village in Languedoc or the Dordogne or heck, Provence, going to the local markets, driving around the countryside. Am I right about this?? And can anyone with experience traveling with wee ones share their wisdom and any tips on towns to consider?

I was thinking about spending three or four days in Paris and the rest somewhere else -- somewhere quaint and scenic, get-around-able by bus or train, and with a good market!! We live in a city and the kid spends time in the country too, so he'd probably be happy in both settings. Thank you.
