help refining my France itinerary

Jump to last reply

We would like to get any feedback for our trip before I book our accommodation. We have a week in Paris then leasing a car for 21 days dropping off in Lyon. We prefer budget travel with our main interest in sightseeing. Departing Paris June 25. We have one very long day's drive from Amboise to the Dordogne area. We're not sure if we should stay the 6 nights in St Remy or split this with another town in the region. The days I have left blank are for touring from base town.

Day 1: Drive to Bayeax (possible stop Hornfleur, Chateau Gaillard)
Day 2: D-Day beaches morning, drive to Mont St Michel (visit evening)
Day 3: Drive to Amboise
Day 4:
Day 5:
Day 6: Drive to Dordogne area (probably Domme) stopping at Oradour-sur-Glane on the way
Day 7:
Day 8:
Day 9:
Day 10: Drive to Albi via Cahors, St Cirq Lapopie, Cordes sur Ciel
Day 11: Drive to Carcassonne
Day 12: Drive to Provence (St Remy)
Day 13:
Day 14:
