Hi all - just returned in October from our five week trip and already in early planning stages for trip next September. First I want to say how much this forum helps me plan our trip each year. So thankful!
We have decided to spend ten days of our five week trip in the Loire Valley and Dordogne regions. We will fly into Paris CDG and head to Amboise. Plan on picking up car in Tours the next day and return it in Libourne, then train to San Sebastián.
This will be our first time in Loire and Dordogne. Here's what I'm thinking:
Amboise - 4 nights ( which would be 3 full days)
Sarlat - 4 nights
St. Emillion 2 nights
I'm thinking we will only want to see about three chateaus in Loire Valley. Rest of the time just "sight seeing", tasting wine and enjoying the area. Haven't gotten to daily itinerary. Just checking to see if I should add more days to Loire Valley and/or Dordogne before I continue my planning.
Thanks for your help.
