Need help with 3 week trip to Europe (base in Provence area)

Jump to last reply

This is our itinerary so far for our trip to Europe next June:

1. Arrive in London, 3 nights
2. Paris, 2 nights
3. Bayeux/Mont. Saint Michel, 3 nights
4. Chatelaillon Plage, 6 nights (visiting husband's grandmother)
5. Have 6 nights left before flying out of Geneva

After our two nights in Paris, we will be renting a car and driving the rest of our trip. We'd like to take it easy in Chatelaillon and enjoy spending time with family but may need to split the time with a day trip. Any suggestions? We'll be two adults and 2 teenagers (14, 16)

I'm having a difficult time deciding where to base ourselves in the Provence area. Every place I read about sounds interesting! My husband would also like to take the kids to Chamonix as he remembers going there with his mother and grandmother as a child. Any thoughts on a base for 3 or 4 nights in the Provence area before we head to Chamonix? Thanks!
