Please critique my itinerary for Paris/Alsace/Provence

Jump to last reply

How does this first draft itinerary look to you, the experts?

Fly in/out Paris (from SFO)

Mon. Depart SFO
Tues - Arrive Paris (CDG); take taxi to hotel
Wed – Sun – Paris

Mon – take TGV to Strasbourg, pick up rental car & drive to??? wherever we decide to stay – Colmar/ Kayserberg/Riquewihr/Ribbeauville/Oberni or???

We prefer smaller towns where we can walk to restaurants, shops, etc.
Towns that are easy to drive in/out of and reasonably flat so that we’re not climbing hills all the time (too difficult for us now).
We would prefer a place with an elevator, A/C, and parking at least very close to the hotel. In lieu of elevator would need ground floor room.
Am I asking for too much?
Budget is less than $250 USD/night
We will have a car and don’t mind driving in the country or mountains…we just try to avoid the larger towns/cities.

We will base somewhere in Alsace Mon thru Sat when we return to Strasbourg, turn in rental car and take TGV to Avignon.

Then, for final location we pick up another rental car at Avignon and drive to where we’re staying near Saint Saturnin-Les-Apt.
I choose this place to relax & unwind before going home. We’ll be here 4 or 5 nts. depending on time of flight home from CDG.

If I have a 4pm flight out of CDG can I get there in time for flight if I leave Avignon in the morning of same day? Is it too risky?

So, basically I need recs for place to stay in Alsace, itinerary critique, and any tidbits about Alsace in general. We were thinking of maybe driving into Germany or Switzerland for a day trip on one of our days. Any advice on that?

This will most likely be our last trip to Europe so we have selected places we’ve never been to.

Thanks in advance for your help.
