help with itinerary- France

Jump to last reply

We have 5-6 days between leaving Paris and getting to Interlaken. We had hoped to go to the Dordogne region, but logistics (primarily getting easily to Switzerland from there) are proving too difficult/time consuming. I am wondering where to spend 5 days where we can visit small villages, see some castles perhaps, and then easily get to Switzerland. I am wondering about Burgundy.....we are open to renting a car while in that area, but unsure where to make our base. But are there other areas of France that would work for us? I love the small villages with the taste of what I had hoped to feel in the Dordogne.
We hope to take a train from Paris to whichever area we decide on for that time, and then rent a car for the days we are there, before hopefully taking a train to Switzerland.
Any help or ideas would be much appreciated.
(This part of the trip will be in early October)
