France with older teenagers

Jump to last reply

My husband and i are planning our first real family trip with our 2 kids, aged 20 & 17. We want to go to-- or start in France, an area we have yet to explore besides Paris.

I am looking for ideas on where to go with our kids who will have limited tolerance for endless walking and nature hikes-- something my husband and I love to do. When I say limited tolerance I mean that we cannot spend every day doing just that. We need a variety of activities to make it interesting-- besides seeing the beautiful countryside.

Some ideas we have: Provence, Nice, Cote d'Azur and ending in paris. We are also considering doing France and another country-- possibly Italy-- but this is not for sure.

Can anyone suggest areas of France to go with older teenagers that can keep them interested and where there are different things to see and do? I'm open to any kind of suggestions since I have never been to France and can only plan via word-of-mouth and any suggestions I can obtain on this site.

Thanks
