Provence or Aquitaine/Dordogne for week with friends?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to France for a group of friends (10 -12) and myself. We plan to rent a house for a week in either Provence or in the South Western part of France. I have been to Provence before for one week staying in St. Remy, and enjoyed that a great deal. Most of us in the group enjoy wine, and wine-tasting, so I am also thinking that somewhere near the Bordeaux region would be good. Of course we could also visit wineries in the rhone region if we choose Provence. I would appreciate advice from you in choosing the region. I've read a little about the Dordogne, which sounds beautiful, but I don't know enough about the area to get started planning a trip. I understand that Bordeaux is actually in Gironde, but from what I've read, that area may be less scenic than the Dordogne, and maybe not the best place for an entire week. The trip will be in mid-June. BTW - We have done this type of trip twice before in Italy, staying in a house in Umbria. Our group consists of 6 couples in their late 40's/early 50's. Most of us will fly in to Europe at different times and do some traveling before meeting at the Rental house for our week together. Thank you for any help/advice you can provide.
