My wife, 9 yr old daughter and myself are going to France this summer for 5 wks. First time for daughter and dad--start in Paris June 27th-already have Starwood Hotel Accom. for 5 nites-get car and drive to Burgundy (love wine and food and daughter is good with all) but need some ideas for Dijon-Lyon-Beaune areas for accom., sites, etc. --thinking 3-4 days for all of this? Then on to Annecy where we have family accom. but would love to hear about some day trips to Switz and surroundings, Italy? We have 10 days in Annecy before we meet good friends that are renting a home in Montpellier for 1 month--also looking for some day trip advice, places on the way and things to do once we get there. After 5-6 days in Montpellier we will go to meet other friends that live in Toulouse but will be in Provence and area for the Tour and the final hill stage of the race around Mt. Vent? They have already chose a B&B for all of us, but if anybody has a great place to recommend, we are always open. We then will go to Toulouse and stay with them for 5 days. Then off to Bordeaux--need accom and all ideas for anything--1-maybe 2 nights here before we head to Loire Valley-maybe Dordogne-Brittany-Normandy, but certainly want to visit some castles and stay in some castle/s and/or little gites. This is most unsure part of trip - we have set 4-5 days for this. And then on to Paris to return car and take chunnel to London and stay with friends at their cottage for 4-5 days and back home to Los Angeles on August 12th- Look Forward to hearing from all as this is my first post.
