I, my husband and two daughters, ages 14 and 23 are planning a trip to France this August and this is what we've got so far:

Aug15,16,17- booked the Hotel La Bourdonnais in the 7th arr. in Paris.

Aug 18,19 -booked the Le Tardif in Bayeux

Aug 20 -Hotel du Guesclin on Mont St. Michel

Aug 21,22,23 -booked the Manoir de Echeneau in Vouvray in the Loire Valley

We plan to fly home on the 29th of August, but at this point are not sure where to conclude our trip. One option is to go to the Alsace region, then return to Paris for a night prior to our flight out. Another choice would be to see Annency/Chamonix and fly out of Geneva.

Ideally, we'd love to see both these regions, but I don't think we have enough time to do them justice.

We are not devoted to seeing sights exclusively.....we'd like to incorporate some activity into our travels...biking, hiking, kayaking.

Right now, we're thinking about renting a car when we leave Paris, and keeping it until we depart, but I'm still exploring the possibilities of rail/car combos.

Any recommendations/comments are greatly appreciated.
thanks,
Lori
