We are off to travel to France around early July time...
I'm hoping someone could give me some pointers to where may be worth going...we are kinda hoping to get to the South coast eventually.
I know I should be doing my homework......I consider asking you guys...my homework.
Cheers, Greeni.

One suggestion is http://www.la-tournerie.com/soft%20roading%20-%204x4.html we are heading down to Pyrenees through France stopping in Loire then heading south towards Pau then Spain and Andorra then heading north, at the end of July and August.

Also around Grenoble nice part of France thourghly enjoyed holiday in this area a couple of years ago can recommend a great little Municipal campsite if you wish.

Also Burgundy Beaune Dijon great for wine and again a nice area depends what you enjoy and what you are hoping to do.

or ...

Drive down through Le Mans, visit the museum www.lemans.org/en/aco/infrastructures/museum.html and drive the Mulsane Straight, visit Futurescope in Poitiers (especially good if you have kids on board) www.futuroscope.com, then continue on down to Montignac where Mugwump suggested???

Hi ExPo

If you are going via Le Mans, try and make time for a visit to Seer, this is the town where the Joan of Arc film was made (Mia Farrow) using the cathedral in the town square.

Whilst you are there make time to take for a meal at the restaurant adjacent to the cathedral (sorry i cannot remember the name) it is on your right hand side, on the corner of the street as you face the cathedral. This restaurant is famous for making what is considered by many, to be the best omelette in France ?

Enjoy your trip Smile

The dordoign???? Nice try, think you mean the Dordogne! Easy to remember spelling of this one ... Dor Dog Ne.

Know the guys who run Dora4x4, with them a couple of years ago. Friendly, knowledgeable with a good rep.
