My husband and I spent three lovely weeks in France. We had an ambitious itinerary--Normandy, Brittany, Paris and Provence. But we did it our way with the help of our travel agent who provided exactly what I had requested.
For this trip, we wanted a mixture of "high" and "low". We also wanted to take our time, since we are retired and have the time to take the sights slowly. Although we are capable of driving, we preferred not to drive.
Our travel agent listened to us and provided just what we requested. We stayed at some highly starred hotels; we also stayed at charming bed and breakfasts. We had a driver at our disposal when the sights we wanted to see weren't covered by a local excursion. By the end of the three weeks, we felt that we had truly met locals and had a more enriching experience than just a cruise or group trip could have provided.
Finally, our agent worked behind the scenes and made the trip seamless. I did not have to make any confirming phone calls with any provider, and the one time an excursion fell through, she suggested a substitute that worked fabulously. She handled all details.
There were so many sights that it's hard to single out any, but our trip to the Normandy landing areas and the American cemetery overlooking Omaha beach were truly humbling. We also enjoyed Mont St Michel, Paris (where we stayed with relatives) and the small towns in Provence and our "hub" in Provence--Avignon. Our cooking class was also a great day!
I guess we could have "doubled up" on some of our day trips to small towns and compressed the time we stayed in Provence. But we consciously decided to take our time and my husband really appreciated that.
