Help with info and opinions - France itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi!
We are a young couple, going on our honeymoon in May (less than a month!). After reading so many messages in this forum, and getting StuDudley's itineraries, here are the outlines of our trip:

Day 1 (Fri) - Arrive 10am CDG
Day 2 to 11 - *Dordogne and Medoc* or *Dordogne and Aquitaine*, by car
Day 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 - Paris
Day 17 - Depart 11am

First question - How would you split (if at all) days 2 to 11. We might add day 12 if required.

Second question - How would you get to Dordogne area? By train to Bordeaux? By car from CDG on day 1? A flight is not an option for us.

Third question - How would you get to Paris on day 12? And where from?

I should say that we prefer places less traveled, more authentic, even if less fancy. My husband speaks French so this is not a problem.

Will appreciate any comments.
