taking kids to france for first time next summer-help!

Jump to last reply

DH adn I have been to Paris 5 x and to Provence (mainly Luberon) once for a week. We love the country and food. Kids will be 12 and 14 next summer so think it is time to take them abroad. DD wants Paris and I am trying to fill in the blanks as to a second or third spot. Hope to use some ff miles so wlil have to book in a few months.

We could go early to mid June or July. DH and I go mid May to Paris but now we are on a school schedule. I know the earller the better for Paris and crowds not sure about these other areas.

The Dordogne looks amazing - outdoor hikes, castles, canoeing down the river, and Beynac looks like a good central spot. Thoughts? I was also looking at the Loire Valley. I have no sense of direction so not sure if this can all work.

Hope to have 2 weeks to do this so any and all ideas are appreciated.
