France...8 days... Overwhelmed.

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be travelling through Europe for three weeks in October and have allocated 8 days to spend in France - looking at the map I am completely overwhelmed by all the options and could really use some advice on where to go.

We will have a car and will be travelling in from Bruges, and after the 8 days in France need to head to Zurich. I have been to Paris before so happy to just spend a very short time there (possibly even a day trip) as my husband is keen to see the Louvre.

We are in our early 30s and in terms of travel interests, I love food, wine and markets etc and my husband loves the outdoors, cycling (he is keen to cycle Alpe d'Huez) . We both love off the beaten track destinations and are quite happy to stay out of the big cities and focus on quirky, beautiful towns and villages.

Any recommendations of great little towns for us to stay in? And any specific accommodation - very keen on slf catering, chambres d'hôtes type stays!
