Suggestions for Nicest French Villages ItineraryDear Francophiles:
Earlier this summer, I did exhaustive and exhausting research and planning for a trip to Italy and Austria with my mom. It was a great success; we both loved it.
Just a couple days ago, I got back from a fun but tiring trip to Turkey, which I had done a lot of research for.
At this point, I am more than a bit tired of trip research! So, I am hoping that with your help, I can take the lazy way out this time.
I would like to take my mom on another trip this summer. She has been watching the Tour de France on TV and commenting on the scenery (as she does every year), so I'd like to take her there (not necessarily to the places on the Tour route). We would like to spend about 2 weeks visiting (staying in) the lovliest villages set in the prettiest natural scenery, and we would like to do all traveling by train.
Could anyone suggest an itinerary (or a list of conveniently located villages)?

1Saorges....Collonges-la-Rouge...Eguisheim...Montfort...Peillon.....beware that the official 'Plus Beaux Villages' listings include some places that wazzam (was and still are) touristy in the worst sense. Crowded, expensive torist traps. Even some of my suggestions fit that bill. Luckily, there are a smazzillion towns and villages to choose from and enjoy. Bonne chance!
