Where would you go in mid Oct.?

Looking for suggestions of places to go in France from Strasbourg in mid-October? We've been to Paris, Normandy, Alsace, and Burgundy; and will have a week with car, but can use planes or trains. Looking for great local food (shouldn't be too hard in France) and sightseeing. Thanks.

Of course Provence or Cote d'Azur, but mid october, a lot of services are closed outside the big cities.

If you are not worried about the weather (but often fall is nice) go the Loire Valley and visit the castles ....

Or visit the Brittany, could be windy and rainy ....but very lovely

Or go to Carcassonne and visit the vineries Corbières and cathars Castles, the Minervois, Toulouse ....

Go from Atlantic shores (Pyrénées Atlantiques, Biarritz, ST Jean de Luz) across the Pyrénées passes to the Mediterannean coast, wonderfull, sometimes rainy ....You can for instance take the TGV from Paris Montparnasse to Biarritz, rent a car and leave it at Montpellier and take the TGV back to Paris

Thank you so much for the great ideas. My one concern was that places may be closed or closing for the winter, and I will look into that. Guess I better start practicing my French again. Can't wait!

Here in Dallas we've also had very strange weather. This summer we had lots of rain. But, now the heat's finally come... Thank you again for the help. I'll post about the places we went.
