Itinerary Help - Loire Valley / Champagne
Firstly, I'm new and have been reading through a number of topics here, looks like a very informative site!
My partner and I are looking at taking a rented MoHo for the first time into France.
After much deliberation between Loire Valley and Alsace, we've decided the following (for a 10 day trip);
Day 1, we arrived in Calais at 7pm.
Day 2-6; Loire Valley.
Day 7-10, Champagne.
Day 10: Eurotunnel departs Calais at 9pm.
(days can be flexible, but ultimately that is the rough circular route we are looking to take).
For Day 1: we won't make it to Loire Valley at a reasonable hour. Any recommendations on a location/Aire a couple of hours south of Calais en-route to Loire Valley?
With roughly 5 days in Loire - any suggestions on which places to visit?
Then we'll head east to visit Champagne for 3 days (any recommendations on particular areas?).
On our final day, we'll head back toward Calais.
I have been doing route planning, and tolls seem to range from Eur 20 per day, to Eur 150 per day. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong!
Any advice or suggestions to the itinerary is welcome!
