My wife and I are considering taking a 14 day holiday in France this summer. The plan is to go Dover to Calais, then spend about 4 days driving west of Paris down to Provence. We then spend a week in a gite on/near the coast, before spending another 4/5 days driving back to Calais via eastern France.
We're looking for suggestions of places to visit on the way to and from Provence. Our interests are history, architecture, art, wine and nature. We've previously visited Paris and Normandy. We've already identified Chartres and the WW1 cemetries as possible places to visit. Does anyone have any suggestions for other places to visit on our journey to and from Provence?
