Help Structuring 3-week Tour of France

Jump to last reply

I could use some help structuring a 3-week tour of France for May 2014. My sister, husband and I will be taking my Dad (73), who has some mobility issues (prefers/can't walk long distances) so the majority of the travel will be with a rental car. My Dad has never been to France and would like to see "some highlights." The general idea is to start in Paris (we'll give Dad the 3-day tour) and then pick up a car from there (or outside the city). My Dad really would like to tour the WWII areas of Normandy; from there, I'd like to head south, maybe heading over towards Provence and perhaps ending the trip in Marseilles (I think Marseilles' rich naval history would be of interest to my Dad).

In doing some initial research, I'm pretty overwhelmed with the choices. Ideally, I'd like to structure the trip so we could take advantage of a home base (we prefer to rent apartments, so if we could stay in one area for 4-5 days each, that would be great). My Dad's interests are military history, classic cars, some interest in wine and food (meaning loves to drink and eat), loves road trips and has a more limited interest in art (he's usually bored in an art museum), but enjoys natural history, architecture.

What do you suggest for a 21-day trip?
