We are a family of 4 (2 boys aged 10 and 6) traveling to France in April. We arrive on April 13 morning and back from Paris on April 25th in the afternoon.
Needed some help with planning our trip. Not planning to do much on the day of arrival.
Here is what we have come up with so far:
Paris - 4 days or so (not including the day of arrival) (13th -17th)
Day trip to Normandy (Mont St Michel) - 18th
Day trip to Versailles - 19th
Loire Valley - was thinking we could stay for a night and visit a couple of chateaux ? Any recommendations? ( 20th and 21st)
Dordogne (if possible) - 2 days - 22nd and 23rd
Riverside castles - canoes, kayaks
Limestone Lasaux Caves
- Alsace (if possible) - 2 days - 22nd and 23rd
- Little Venice
Back to Paris on 24th and fly back out on 25th.
Does the above seem like a reasonable plan? We are totally open to doing things in any order and cutting out a few things to make sure the trip is not too rushed.
Any feedback regarding the above itinerary and recommendations on number of nights to stay at each location is highly appreciated. Once we finalize days at each location and book our hotels/airbnb will be looking for recommendations for transportation from one point to another.
