Paris, Ile de France...and WHERE? 1st trip to France in June! Oh la la!

Jump to last reply

WHERE is the best of France in June? Please cast your vote here! Do share where and why? Can't wait for you to inspire me!

I just finished reading about Paris in the Rick Steves guidebook. We'll have 14-17 nights in France in June, and will visit Paris, the Ile de France...and WHERE else in France? I've considered Provence, but not sure if I'm fond of Le Mistral...sounds long-winded! French Riviera? Normandy?

We like to spend at least 4 nights in each accommodation, so will only include 3 areas in this trip...Paris, Ile de France, and 1 other "base".... We like trains, but can also rent a car if needed.

I like food, wine, people, culture, music, language... My husband likes all of these things, plus since he's a biologist, he also enjoys gardens and any natural areas which may be nearby. Farms are his least favorite kind of area to visit. This trip is my choice. He got to choose South Africa last year!

I'm learning French for free by using the Duolingo app which I downloaded on my Iphone. I'm learning French just to enrich the trip. Nobody will understand a word of my French, but I know it will help me understand the country! Je suis une femme et tu es un homme. Je mange du frommage. Sorry, I don't know too much French yet, I can't say anything more exciting than that! Oh la la! My desk doesn't have an international keyboard for accents.

No budget questions, please. We like to mix it up when it comes to accommodations. We'll choose something from various different categories. But my husband would faint if I spent $800 USD for 1 night, so we'll skip the extravagant category. We especially like family-run guesthouses or b&bs where the owner interacts with the guests, or smaller boutique hotels. Tend to avoid the large hotel chains, unless we have points or free nights...which sometimes happens.

Merci!
