French road trip ideas

Hi all,

I'm planning my first road trip to France.

Will be taking my missus so guess I need a few nice stops other than the many petrol stations

It will only be for a week so would massivley appreciate on where to go and what to look out for!

cheers

Monte carlo is a "must visit" place, and the drive through the french Alps is a good experience

on your way to Monte Carlo / French Alps, stop for a wine tasting experience around Beaune (Burgundy wineries, best French wine, damn, worlwide even ) the city itself is a great place to visit as well...
look out for the local producers, not the made-for-tourists, wine-tasting / robbery factories...
i could hook you up with some names if you want...
i'd tell you to stop at my family place, but with me being 3,000 miles away right now, it might be tough

Thanks both

I really want to do Monte Carlo but that one will have to be a guys road trip.

Its a bit too long for the missus and more importantly she goes absolutely ballistic at me when I drop it in 2nd in tunnels to hear the exhaust

We may well end up hugging the West coast.

Will let you know how I get on with the gendarmes!

when the miss starts yelling at you, just tell her this car has a mind of its own, and that you cant control everything... otherwise, open the windows, crank the tunes up, rev the engine, that should cover her voice
enjoy your trip !
