    As we only have a week to spend in france I thought I would just pick a place that caught my eye and head towards that direction. I had no idea how big france was and I don't even know where to start ..
    I'm sat here with a map and google and every time I see something I then see something even better !!

    Could easily spend a week in Brittany, or bit further both Limousin and Volcans d'Auvergne are stunning areas.

    For a week you need to get a wiggle on day 1 to get anywhere half decent really. Brittany is a good suggestion but its further than you think but doable in a day. Normandy however and the Normandy peninsula is worth an explore and there is all the WW2 stuff there. Nice long sandy beaches, one or two good wild spots and aires and depending on where you are going back to in the UK there is a super fast Normandie Express from Cherbourg that is powerboat speed and has you back in the UK in three and a bit hours.

    The Loire around Samuer is ok for a week and if your going soon you probably have a better chance of half decent weather there otherwise its a longer hop over to somewhere like Jura or the Alsace. All of these you need to get your foot down day one and the last day though. Northern France otherwise IMO is pretty dull.

    France has a lot of great places but you can easily spend your week getting there and back.

    Your ferry choice makes a big difference to where.

    Calais, we like le Crotoy on the Bay of the Somme.

    Cherbourg you have the D-day beaches on one side with the 75th invasion anniversary celebration and Carteret on the other.

    Le harve you have At Malo and bay of St Micheal.

    Rod off the whole of Brittany.

    Enjoy your trip

    With only a week I immediately thought Normandy. History. Beaches. Cider. Camembert. I worked myway along on Soupe de Poison.

    Thanks all ... I'm thinking Brittany as mark first suggested. I don't want to venture to as it's such a short time but I have found a couple of places that look quite good ..
    July should be hot enough for my liking.
    Will plan Better next time with more time off work but this will do for now 😊

    Have a look at Honfleur Jac, not free but we always enjoy a few days there. This year we are going to explore Dinan which is also in Brittany.

    I remember it hitting 120degrees in June one year (80ís I think). We were at Le Mans for the French bike GP and it was a killer. More folks sheltering under the stands and any shade they could find rather than in the stands watching the race.

    July should be fine

    Dinan is a lovely place but you might need big ramps

    It has lovely old buildings similar to York but on a grand scale
