Help with scenic driving route, Loire Valley to Dusseldorf

Jump to last reply

I seem to have hit a bit of a wall, re planning this trip. Just looking for some suggestions to get me back on track.

We are flying in and out of Dusseldorf (thanks to ff points) Arriving August 30, departing Sept 20, picking up a car and dropping off at Dusseldorf airport.

After 2 weeks getting to Azay le Rideau (Loire Valley) via, Bacharach, Eguisheim, Dijon, we will have a week to get back to Dusseldorf. At the moment I'm thinking via Reims and maybe Luxembourg. We aren't planning anytime in Dusseldorf itself, its just our arrival/departure point. Its been discussed that this isn't such a good plan (i.e. Dusseldorf) but we're happy with the B/class flights for a bit of tax and are more than happy to and thoroughly enjoy driving in Europe. (not our 1st time). And the plan was always France, at least this way we also get some German Village time too.

We love small villages, where we can park the car and walk around town and to restaurants etc. Food Wine and Scenery are all big on our list. Does anyone know of a Hotel/Chateau/similar that offer a degustation type meal in an interesting/rural area, as well as the accommodation?

Love to hear your thoughts?
