Hello friendly trip advisors! I will be in Paris May 19-26. I really want to do a trip or two outside of Paris to other areas in France. I'd ideally love to visit a beautiful castle or chateaux as well as some caves. Any suggestions on really cool ones? I love architecture and history so it would be best if the chateaux or castle was in a town where there are other interesting things to see as well.
As for caves, whenever I search for some all I get is Lascaux. Obviously Lascaux is super cool for its cave paintings but I was looking more for something else, along the lines of a cave to explore nature in.
Any ideas would be great, thanks!
