HELP!!...Please!

Jump to last reply

Well, now that our proposed trip to Bavaria is shelved(iffy weather), our family of 4 thought France would be a good bet. Proposed dates of travel are August 15-29,2012.

Tentative itinerary follows:

Aug 15-- arrive Paris airport...depart immediately either via rental car or train for 3 nights in
Loire Valley. Not sure where to base. Want charming town, but not too touristy.
Maybe Loches?

Aug 18-- depart Loire Valley and head to Provence, again either via train or keeping the
rental car for the duration of our travels. Need a nice "base", again away from the
tourist hordes. Stay 4 nights.

Aug 22--depart Provence and head to Alps...maybe Chamonix?. Stay 4 nights.

Aug 26--depart Alps for 3 nights in Paris

Aug 29--fly home

This is definitely subject to change. We would love to visit the D-Day beaches, so we'd have to figure a way to work it it.

We're also not sure if it make sense to rent a car upon arrival and keep it until we return to Paris, or do a combo of train/car rental. We want the most expedient AND cost effective option.

ANY and ALL feedback is greatly appreciated.
