I am thinking of doing a driving holiday in France. Never planned a trip like this before and don't really know where to start. I know roughly that I will use eurotunnel to Calais, then would like to meander down to the Alsace wine region, go round it, then return to Calais. Not keen on driving more then 100 miles in a day. Ideally would like to base myself in 2 or 3 locations for 3 nights each. Have Strassbourg and Colmar in mind - can you get local wine tours on a coach so I can enjoy the tastings. What is there to see there and on route ? Can you get a boat trip on the Rhine ? Can you cross over to Germany ? Where would that be and is it worth it ? Whats a good time of year to go etc etc Will be travelling as a couple or plus another couple. Budget around £2,000. Like to stay in 3* plus places. Friends like to get out every day, I'm happy to lounge the odd day. So places they can reach without the car would be good.
