Sorry about double post but needed to add that the weather in France in September should still be good for the beach.

If you haven't been reading it, I recommend that you read nukesafe's latest trip report, http://www.fodors.com/community/euro...aris-again.cfm

He mentions Paris greeters a lot, which could be interesting for you traveling alone, specially because the greeters they have seems to be foodies. I know that Nukesafe and his wife are much older but I think you will still enjoy the greeter's service, which is basically a walking tour around with someone local to give you a sense of what they love about their city and to also help you discover things you are especially interested in. They also have the service in Lyon:

I agree that Lyon would make a good second destination if you aren't driving, but we have recently rediscovered Bordeaux, which is really nice and very young feeling these days-lots of students, an easy city to get around by foot and tram and well worth a visit. Like St-Cirq, I am not as keen on St-Emilion unless you have a way to get there and some real contacts in the industry to have a more insider's visit. Although I will say the countryside is beautiful that time of year-the colors can be stunning. But Bordeaux the city is fun for a few days.

I do think the suggested Paris Lyon Nice route would be fun at your age especially if you can get an open jaw ticket and fly in or out from Nice versus having to return to Paris
