France: Something Different from Paris

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be spending twelve days in France in February (Already subtracted out 2 days for flying in and out of CDG). We plan to spend a week in Paris but are thinking about something different for the other 5 days. I think something less "city-like" would be good but I don't know if that means Brittany, The Loire, Nice, Provence, etc. I've tried searching the forum but most posts I've read have focused on how to pack as much into two weeks as possible and that's not exactly what I'm looking for.

We only want to go to one different place if we leave Paris since we aren't the type to go see sights back-to-back-to-back. We tend to find one attraction a day to visit and then just wander from there to our desired food destinations or go shopping. We really do prefer to just enjoy the feel of living in a different place which is why I'm curious as to whether 5 days (taking into account travel) is manageable for seeing another part of France. One thing we've discussed in the past is how fun it would be to visit a small village in France with our family one day and just get familiar with the markets and eat at little mom and pop places. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
