French Countryside: Nine Days...Three Regions?

Jump to last reply

We are planning a last-minute 15-day trip to France next month. We have booked our flight and apartment rental for the final five days in Paris. That leaves nine days open to planning. We expect to have a rental car after arrival to CDG (which we will return after returning to Paris). I thought picking two or three regions to setup base for three or four days each would be a comfortable way to see enough, but not too much.

I'm interested in seeing the Mediterranean coast, the Alps, and perhaps a romantic interior region with vineyards/castles/unique landscapes. Can anyone recommend a two- or three-region itinerary that hits the areas I mentioned and perhaps another "must see" accessible by rental car. Ex:, would four three days in Normandy, two in the Alps, and four in Provence be too spread out driving-wise?

As for lodging I like the idea of renting a local place or BnB to get as native an experience as possible. Any recommendations for short-stay base camps with the suggestions regions would also be appreciated!
