We are two 60 year olds visiting France (have never been to Europe) for the first time. We will have all of June in France for "slow travel".
By this I mean that we just love to explore an area by basing ourselves in the one spot for a week and use that as a base, driving no more than say 2 hours to visit neighbouring towns/areas.
We adore the outdoors and appreciate lovely countryside and small towns.
We love farm houses (as booked in Italy) and will possibly book at least 5 of these for our vacation in France.
We thought a combination of rental vehicle and train for France.
One suggestion on an Italy forum was for us to rent our first vehicle in Menton. If we did this, where would be the best place to drive to so that we can stay at least 5 days?
All of the regions of France look so appealing. I guess that the coast (except for Brittany) is not so important to us (we have the most amazing beaches here in Australia!)
Oh, hubby is a keen cyclist. Is it feasible to train or drive to the Pyrennes region and where to?
Sorry if there are too many questions?
Thank you, Chris
