Early stages of spring 2023 trip planning to France. We have been to Paris before (one week) and Provence (another year, another week). This time, we are looking at the Loire Valley for a week (biking) plus another ten days in France, either mostly or entirely NOT including Paris.
We will probably take 3 days from arrival to get to the Loire, via Versailles (2 nights) and Chartres (one night). And the other week? Brittany/Normandy or Bordeaux/Dordogne? Est que vous avez des idees? Both for the Loire, and the rest of our planning. Independent travel or, perhaps, a tour?
