Suggested Itinerary 7 days in France AFTER Paris

Jump to last reply

Husband, myself (both 52 yo) & 22 yo daughter traveling to Paris late May to meet up with 20 yo daughter (finishing a study abroad program.) We've been to Paris before, and I have been to the Loire Valley area. Any suggestions for approx. 7-8 days in France, excluding Paris/Versailles/Normandy/Loire, starting from Paris? The Parisian student-daughter wants to hit Marseilles/Nice/Cannes area, and the rest of us are up for just about anything.

We are into moderate am't of history/churches/museums/chateaus/castles, like wine & good food, scenic drives, charming towns/markets, the must-see sites for first timers, and a little shopping.

Best chateaus/castles outside of Loire V. area? If we concentrate on eastern France, would it be wise to pick 2-3 towns to stay in, each for 2-3 days, to use as base camp? Which towns?
-Thank you!
