Honeymoon in France

We have been to Paris as a couple twice. We have been to Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin and are going to London in 2 weeks for a 1 week trip.
Here is the question: We have 2 weeks in France- flying into and out of Paris in late May. What cities outside of Paris are good for us?
Likes: Red Wine, biking, cities, restaurants, bars, sunshine.
Dislikes: isolated country life, meat (I'm veggie), and cold.
This is our Honeymoon- so give us your dream trip or something great!
Thanks for your help!

May is a wonderful time in France, particularly as you move South, the spring have turned the entire country into a wild flower show.

For the Perfect honeymoon I suggest

3 days Paris
Travel to Marseille by TGV (v fast train)
Rent car
Drive to St Tropez by coast road
3 days St Tropez
3 Day trip to Monte Carlo and San Remo in Italy
Return to Paris

This is a perfect honeymoon!

Though you'll need to stay in hotels or Gites rather than rented accomodation, this rental site is a fantastic source of information for the area.


Have a wonderful time!

2 weeks are 14 days so you might add a stop in Burgundy on the way to Marseille since you wrote you like red wine, biking, cities, restaurants and bars.

Happy travels!

Well, it's been a while, but here's a suggestion for a perfect honeymoon:

3-4 days in Burgundy - stay at Coco's place right in the heart of Dijon http://www.myhomeindijon.com/

3-4 days in Aix-en-Provence, prettiest city in Provence and strolling around in the evenings is as romantic as it gets. Day trips to Les Alpilles, the Luberon and/or Cassis. Stay at Madame d'Aquilante's beautiful B&B "Maison Carlotta" http://tinyurl.com/yvwwgk

Then finish with 3-4 days in Nice. Center of the Cote d'Azur - stay in the Old Town.

There - how's that ?

I'll second Kevin's rec. I just returned from Burgundy and stayed at Coco's flat (trip report coming later today) and it would be a wonderful place to spend a few nights on your honeymoon, great wine, great city (I'm not a country person either) but you are close enough to make day trips into the country. The place is just perfect in every way.

I haven't been to Nice yet, I might exchange Colmar/Strasbourg in Alsace for that portion. We loved the biking and wine when we were there.
