Where to Go in France in October?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are going to France in October. We will have five days outside of Paris. We have both been to Paris several times but this will be our first time to venture out into the countryside. My dream has long been to visit the Dordogne region but it's six hours by train to get to Sarlat which is too long for us for this trip since we will only be in France for a week total. I would like to go somewhere that is no more than 3-4 hours by train from Paris.

Here is a little background about what we are looking for. We love exceptional food, chateau, small picturesque villages, history, beautiful architecture, and lush, green scenery with plenty of trees. We do not drink at all so we have no interest in visiting wineries. I want to visit Alsace and my wife is leaning toward Burgundy. My wife says she does not want to eat sausage and sauerkraut for five days. I have tried to explain that is only part of what is great about Alsatian cuisine but maybe some info from some of you who have more experience will help.

From what I've described, what region of France do any of you most recommend for us to consider? Thanks in advance for your help!
