We considering visiting France around Xmas this year, mid Dec to early Jan. We wish to visit Avignon, Carcassone and then drive slowly around the south. We would fly into Lyon and out of Nice, or the other way around.
Just wondering what days are public holidays over xmas in the region, what days are we liking to find most things closed? We are not great shoppers but rather like to visit villages when they are bustling.
We are just in the early stages of planning, but any help would be appreciated.
