We are off to France again!!

Jump to last reply

Some of you may have read my trip report on our trip in 2012
http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/our-own-country-roads-tour-of-france.cfm.
Some information about us. We are a 59/60 year old couple from Australia. DH retires at the end of the year, so this is a trip to use up some of his Long service Leave. We fell in love with France after a brief trip [ 4 days ] in 2004. We think that each trip could be our last, and yet, here we are coming back again. We enjoy the ' slow travel ' philosophy, and for us it is as much about being there as it is about visiting ' must see ' places. But we that too.
This trip [ we leave in a couple of weeks ] will be a mix of re-visit and new places and we are slowing down a bit. We stay in self catering accommodation and do day trips. Some of our favourite days are where we just meander around and see what we see. Eating out a lot is not financially an option for us but luckily - hence self catering - we enjoy cooking ' at home ' with fabulous ingredients!!
I love to read books about France and have a large collection. I do like to visit places I have read about . DH indulges me in this as he gets to see some great, albeit out of the way , places. An example this trip - " French Spirits " by Geoffrey Greene set in Rogny les Sept Ecluses in Burgundy.

Here is the plan - all booked, so no changes, with a couple of days in Paris at each end.

#Two weeks in Pernes les Fontaines - a re - visit to Provence .
#Two weeks near Clermont l ' Herault - a new area for us.
#Two weeks in Cenac et St julien [ near Domme ] - a re - visit to the Dordogne.
# one week near Richelieu - we have spent a week in the Loire in a different part.
# One week near Cormatin - a re - visit to a favourite area.
# Two weeks in Villeneuve sur Yonne - a new part of Burgundy for us.

I appreciate this may not appeal to some - too much country and not enough cities. But we have done this enough to know that this is what we enjoy. I will do a report on our return from what I know will be another lovely trip. I have gained a lot of information from posters here and on other forums, so to all I say ' thank you '..
