Paris + Where else?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning a 10 day trip (this includes travel days) from Chicago and are considering going to France. We spent 4 days in Paris 10 years ago and did all of the "tourist" stuff but we both loved the city and would like to go there at least for a couple of days. Any suggestions on what to do in addition to Paris given our available time? We are going to be taking this trip sometime in October. Figuring one full day for travel to get there and one full day back that leaves us with about 8 days to work with. Figuring 2-3 days for Paris that leaves us with 5-6 days for something else.

We were considering two primary options:
1. Paris for 2 or 3 days + the Loire Valley
2. Paris for 2 or 3 days + the French Riviera

Any suggestions on an itinerary for these two options? We'd love to try staying in a Chateau. Our budget, outside of the flight, is around $3k for both of us but I'd love to keep it closer to $2k if possible.

Also, should I expect to use trains and buses for travel with either of these options?

Thanks very much in advance for any and all advice :)
