Southwest France

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are in the preliminary stage of planning a trip to France. What we know at the moment is we will fly into Paris, from there, likely catch a train to Bordeaux and from there the trip is a blank slate.

We have toyed with the idea of a few days in Bordeaux and the local vineyards, then a circular route through the Dordogne, making our way, perhaps, as far south as Narbonne, then a lazy drive through the Haute Pyrenees to the Atlantic, and back to Bordeaux to drop off the care and catch the train to Paris.

The trip would last just over 3 weeks. Any suggestions on must see places (we do plan to see Lascaux II), places to stay for 2-3 days, and even places to miss? The trip would begin in late June and end in mid-July.

We are "seasoned" travelers in our 60s, and I'm fluent in 3 words of French (LOL).

Thanks, in advance, for your kind suggestions.
