Three weeks Road trip in France in June- Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 4 from Mumbai, india; which includes 2 daughters 18 and 20 years old; planning to explore France in 3 weeks by road in June, starting from Paris. We have been to Paris, twice earlier. We are comfortable with 15 days road trips and have done it earlier in Scotland, USA and Canada.

We love Architecture, culture, nature.. would like to see some small villages, picturesque routes, architectural marvels.

Rough Itinerary is as follows;

1-3 Days- Paris
Rent a car
4 & 5 Days- Loire valley- 2 to 3 days (Amboise)
6,7,8 days- Lyon, Dordogne, Carcassonne (Pont du Gard aqueduct )
Want to see Milau viaduct- Browse the town and market of Sarlat, take a canoe trip, and tour a prehistoric cave
9,10,11 Days- PROVENCE- Avignon, Beaune, Route du Vin villages, colmar, St Remy
Want to see Lavender Fields at Luberon (any other place?)
Luberon Abbaye de Senanque, Arles, Les Baux
12,13,14 Days- Roussillon, Nice, Monaco
15,16 Days- Chamonix (Optional)
17,18,19 Days- Dijon, Stasbourg, Reims
Return the car
20,21- Paris- fly back home

My order of places may be wrong..
I am avoiding St. Michael, Normandy, Brittany; as I think it would be too hectic in an already long road rip. I am not interested in D Day beaches.
I would have loved to tour in May, but am planning the trip in June specially for lavender bloom and hoping that the climate is cool and there are less tourists.

Please suggest if this itinerary is too long or hectic? Any changes or suggestions?
Should I skip Chamonix and add something else or reduce the number of days? We have seen Swiss Alps earlier.
Any specific things that I can see en route?
Any suggestions for small and picturesque villages, scenic places, Lavender fields, Cultural experiences?

Please help ...
