We are planning to travel to France in May 2014 with our two kids, ages 2 & 4 and I was hoping for some suggestions for a city to stay in.
We have travelled extensively throughout Western Europe, with and without kids, and are very laid back travellers. We will fly in to Paris, stay 1 night only (we've been many times), and then would like to take the train to a single destination in the south of France. We will rent an apartment and would like to explore by foot mostly. No major museums really, all very laid back - visiting parks, markets, perusing monuments from the outside, eating pastries and maybe some shopping for me:)
Looking at maybe Lyon or Aix... Preferences or alternates?
