Where to go outside of Paris in May?

My husband and I are headed to Paris in May. We will be there for a week and have a free apt. in Paris. We want to take a trip for a couple days outside the city. The only place in France I have been besides Paris is to Nice, so I want to see something new. Any suggestions? I have heard Loire Valley or Provence are best bets...

The Loire Valley is certainly close. Either drive out of the city or take the twenty-five minute train ride to St Pierre des Corps [outsdie of Tours] and rent a car there. Amboise is fairly well located.

Hi T,

You can be in Strasbourg (Alsace, Nancy (Lorraine) or Dijon (Burgundy) in about 2 hr.

When you went to Nice you were actually in Provence. If you only have a couple of days outside Paris, Provence would be a long way to travel. Either the Loire Valley, the part of Normandy near Paris, or Burgundy would be better, I think.

With only a week, maybe just a day trip to Giverney? Or the Loire. Or Chartres. But I'd do a day trip--and only one.
