La Rochelle vs. Chateauroux vs. Saintes

Jump to last reply

Hi all, the wife and I will be in France this September visiting Paris and also spending a few days near Bordeaux. Our plan currently is to drive from Paris, and we'd like to spend a 2-3 days somewhere in between, so far La Rochelle, Chateauroux and Saintes have been recommended as possibilities. I've searched the forums here for these towns but haven't come up with too much.

To narrow it down a bit, although we enjoy sightseeing/wandering around cities I feel we will be a little worn out on that after spending several days exploring Paris, and are looking for something a little more slower-paced where the focus is more on the culture, food, relaxation, etc. For those of you who have visited these towns, do you have any recommendations?

Thanks in advance for your help!
