My husband & I (along with another couple) are planning a trip to France in late October/ early November. We planned 4 days in the Loire Valley and 5 days in Paris.
As it stands now, we are arriving to CDG Saturday AM, and plan to rent a car and drive to Amboise. We have hotel reservations at Les Minimes and were going to stay there for a total of (4) nights (Saturday - Tuesday, checking out Wednesday AM). I thought each day we could pick a new area to explore (Vouvray, Chambord, Cheverny, Chenonceau, Chinon etc...), explore the different chateaux, have a leisurely lunch, visit wineries etc...
My husband is concerned it may be too much time spent in one area, and suggested we pick another region/town to drive to first, and then spend only 2 days in the Loire Valley.
I would love any input suggestions. I am pregnant (just beginning my 2nd trimester at that point) and obviously can't drink, so spending an entire day tasting wine wouldn't be "fun" for me.
