If there is one thing we love to do, it’s to go on a mother-daughter trip. It’s a good way for us to get to know each other better, to create new memories. The only drawback? It’s sometimes hard to find a destination that combines the desires of each of us. So if you also want to go away together, here are 5 ideas of destinations in France that you might like, according to your interests.
Paris, the capital of fashion
Paris is the perfect destination for a cultural getaway. Whether you like to visit museums, read a book in a bookstore, go to the opera, see a play… you won’t be bored. Paris is also known as the capital of fashion. For shopping lovers, you are in the right place. Begin your weekend with a visit to the Opéra Garnier and a stroll in Montmartre. Then go shopping in the Marais district. The next day, opt for a stroll along the quays and drop by the Musée de l’Orangerie, then the Jardin du Luxembourg to read together in the sun. As for addresses, we recommend The Hoxton restaurant. A real treat!
Rennes, the capital of Brittany
For a historical getaway, head to Rennes, the capital of Brittany. It’s a perfect destination for those who love architecture and heritage. Start your stay by strolling through the streets of old Rennes to discover its Portes Mordelaises and the Place du Champ Jacquet with its beautiful half-timbered houses. Then you can visit the City Hall and the Parliament of Brittany. In the evening, spend the night at the Opera for a memorable moment. If you are looking for a starred hotel in the city center, we advise you to stay at the Hotel de Nemours.
Noirmoutier, on the Vendee Coast
For a seaside getaway, let’s discover the island of Noirmoutier in Vendée! This family destination is ideal for a rejuvenating break. Start your stay by visiting the market of Noirmoutier-en-l’Île. It’s the better place to prepare a basket of fresh and local products that you can enjoy on the beach, in picnic mode. In the afternoon, go for a bike ride in the salt marshes and up to the Pointe de Devin to see, in the background, the Pilier Island. Scenery guaranteed! In the evening, take an aperitif in front of the port of Noirmoutier at Le 11, watch the sunset on the Luzeronde Beach or play board games.
The Pyrenees, for a mountain scenery
For a sporty getaway with the mountains as a backdrop, head for the Pyrenees Orientales! Here, there is no lack of activities. Whether you prefer to spend the day on the slopes, go snowshoeing, follow the lake route or go on a dog sledding trip, it’s up to you. After a day full of intensity, it’s time to recharge your batteries at a spa or a health resort. It’s a great way to combine effort and comfort.
Nice, on the French Riviera
For the more adventurous, in search of beautiful landscapes, head for the French Riviera. Nice is an ideal base for visiting the surrounding cities such as Monaco, Villefranche-sur-mer, Eze or Antibes. You can enjoy cultural outings, stroll and go shopping, hike or swim in a beautiful setting between sea and mountains. Here, there is something for everyone! Don’t miss: the Place Massena, the Promenade des Anglais, the Place Garibaldi and the Cours Saleya.
