Suggestions for France, 2 Weeks

Jump to last reply

Hello! My wife and I are planning to go to France in late Sept/early Oct this year and are having a difficult time deciding how to split our time. It seems the more research I do the more confused I am as everything seems to sound wonderful!

A bit about us: We've been to Italy, Spain and Portugal before and love food, architecture, churches, history and quaint towns. We're in our mid 20s and plan to arrive and leave out of CDG. We're open to driving or training to where we need to go.

We have exactly two weeks and would like to stay in Paris for a week (with a day trip to Chartes and Versailles) and would like to explore another area of France for the other week. We prefer an area that is more of the french countryside feel with a slower pace of life that still has a lot of history to it. Our favorite city to visit in Spain was Toledo if that is any help as it had that beautiful medieval feel. We also want to base ourselves out of just one or two cities outside of Paris (visiting nearby areas though is great) and not spending every night in a different city.

We were thinking the Dordogne region (and I already got some great info from Stu Dudley!) and basing ourselves out of Sarlat but doing more research I was then thinking Normandy, then Burgundy, then Alsace... You can see where this research isn't really helping as it more just fuels the imagination of more possibilities than helping me cross regions off the list.

Suggestions?

Other notes: WW1 and WW2 history are of no interest to us. Nor are beaches as this is more of a historical and cultural trip than a beach vacation.
