A month in France

My wife and I are considering celebrating our 50th wedding anniversay by spending a month in France (our favorite European country). We want to settle in one area as our home base and day trip from there if we choose. Our first choice is Provence, but are open to other area. Any suggestions?

No suggestions. I love France, as well. But I do find myself envious!

50 Years! Yowza! Congratulations!
Yep, I'm exclaiming all over the place!

I'd start in Paris 1 week - then down to the latter 3 weeks in Provence...
anywhere.

Yes, congratulations on your 50 years together.

We did this last year for our 45th , but being city people at heart started with a week in Paris, then a few days in Lyon, then based ourselves in the middle of Burgundy for 2 weeks. We were aable to see many beautiful small villages and still get into some larger town and cities..Beaune, Dijon, Auxerre. Then back to Paris for our last week.

If you are not going to have a car an larger town might be a better option.We had wanted to visit the Dordogne, but found many places closed for the season in November.

We've spent one month in 1 Gite in Provence, and 1 month in another Gite in the Dordogne. We've also spent 2 weeks (in Gites) in about 15 other regions in France. Not sure which area (Provence or the Dordogne) we perfer - perhaps Provence in June (because Provence screams "summer") and the Dordogne in Sept because it seems like a fall place (foie gras, walnuts, magrets, heavier food).

Thanks for all your answers. We are leaning towards a week in Paris, then 3 weeks in the Luberon. Might also consider teh Dordogne as well
