France tour: looking for route suggestions
I'm in early stages of investigating a tour in the summer (possibly as early as late June, early July). My plans are flexible, I'd like to do 14-21 days, flying in and out. I'll be loaded touring, camping.
I've done Loire valley a couple of times now, really enjoyed it but need to try somewhere new. I'd like to find:
- somewhere accessible to an international airport,
- with nice scenery,
- plenty of campsites,
- relatively flat,
- cycle-friendly roads/traffic.
I'm currently looking at Canal du Midi, one possible route is Sete up to Bordeaux
(is the 2nd canal as good as the first section?)
I have been and will continue to read other threads here about folks routes, but I don't want to hijack their threads. My plans are completely open, so all suggestions welcome.
Finally, I'll probably be heading alone (I've done solo tours before), but I don't have any problem if anyone wants a touring partner for a week or 2.
