My husband and I are heading to France for our honeymoon in May- we will arrive in Paris in the morning on Sunday 5/5, stay there for 3 nights, and fly out of Paris on Sat the 18th.
We were thinking of taking the train from Paris to Arles and spending 2 or 3 days in that area to see Carcassone and Pont du Gard as well as poking around Arles. From there we want to go to Dordogne to see Font de Gaume and the market in Sarlat. We plan to rent a car (in Arles?) to head to Dordogne, eventually heading back to Paris by way of the Loire valley (spending Thursday night there and Friday night in Paris).
-we would like to do some hiking, so I'm thinking Dordogne might be better than Provence for that?
-is 3 nights too much time to spend in Arles? I don't want to cram too much into our trip since driving will likely take up a decent chunk of time.
