Ideas for Three Nights in the French Countryside near Paris

Jump to last reply

We (DH, DD and myself) have a trip booked in mid-October for 10 nights, flying into Paris and out of London. We have been to each of those cities several times. We need to spend the last weekend in London, most likely; other than that, have no specific needs or plans yet.

Instead of all our time in those cities (wonderful as they are), I would like to have DD see some smaller French cities/villages, which she has not done yet. Due to the time limitations, it should probably be near Paris. Any ideas?

I know the Loire Valley is the logical choice, but DH and I have been there several times, as well, and I just don't think it's the prettiest part of France. Burgundy is another thought; we've been, but DD has not. But though she's interested in wine, she will only be 16 years old, so depending on the situation (she's been served wine in restaurants in Paris since she was 11), that could be not so fun for her.

Brittany is already on our must-visit list, but given our time limitations and the time of year, maybe we should save Brittany for a time when we can spend our entire vacation there?

It doesn't need to be a popular tourist destination, just a small city/village/town where we could spend three nights, enjoy the place, culture and food.
