school holidays in france

Jump to last reply

DH and I are planning a trip to central and southern France in April. From research, we find that all school holidays are in April. We are planning to be there for a month. Since we are a bit older and will be driving a car, we have concerns about traffic and crowds. None of our plans are set in stone-but we want to start on some things soon. I have the exact dates for the school holidays and we would like some input regarding traffic and crowds.We plan to lease a car in Paris -driving to and from there. Since we live in rural central Colorado-we are not accustomed to heavy traffic. Oh, we plan to stay and be in rural areas once we get out of Paris.
If there are issues with the school holidays or traffic, alternative suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
