September Trip - Loire Valley,Pyrenees and Basque Country

Jump to last reply

I need advise on a September trip I am in the midst of planning. My husband and will be in France for 17 nights. I still owe everyone a trip report from our trip this past December to Paris, Provence and the Dordogne! When I finalize these plans, I'll start working on that report.

Here is what I am contemplating:
Arrive Paris and train to Tours. Pick up rental car. 4 nights in Blois
Drive to Parc Nationale du Pyrenees (about 8 hour drive). 3 nights in Cauterets
Drive to French Basque Country. 3 nights in Bidarray at Auberge Ostape.
Drop off car at Biarritz airport. 3 nights in either Biarritz or San Sebastian
Train form Biarritz to Paris. 4 nights in Paris.

Is that too aggressive of an itinerary? Am I alllowing enough time in each place? We had originally planned to drive from Blois to Bidarray and spend 4 nights at the Auberge and then 5 nights in San Sebastian. I started looking at pictures of the Pyrenees and my plans fell apart!
