My husband and I are travelling to France mid June and we are keen on some cycling. We are definately keen to be independent - travelling at our own pace, eating where we want to eat, staying where we want to stay etc. Neither of us have travelled to France and we dont know where to start to work out what to do.
Our ideal would be 5-6 days cycling, through the vineyards and small towns, lots of wine tasting, picnics, combination of camping and staying in local inns.
Are we best to avoid the south? Will it be too hot?
Where can we find good camping? Can you easily hire camping equipment?
If we do camp and don't want to take all our gear, where can we leave it.
Lots of questions, I know. But, as I say, just not sure where to start... Any help would be much appreciated.
