Resolved Question: Places to see (and a town
I am playing travel agent and chauffeur for my parents (mid-70s) and daughter (12) for a trip to France where we will visit family (Strasbourg) and a town with historical relevance to our family (Brantome, not far from Perigueux). We would like to take a leisurely pace between Dijon and Brantome, staying somewhere in between overnight, but don't know where to stay. Limoges has not been described as a terrific place for tourists. How's Moulins? Montlucon? Anything else you'd recommend? I'm sure my parents wouldn't mind seeing a castle along the way, if there is one to visit.
Thank you. Or, as Mr. Bean replied when complimented on his French, "Gracias." Gueret is another possible town.
Or we could just take a longer route by heading north or south of the route that Google Maps suggests, but we still just have a couple of days (one night) from Dijon to Brantome.

Resolved Question: Places to see (and a town
I'm accompanying my getting-older parents (mid-70s) in France in late September. We'll start in Paris and take the train to Strasbourg to see relatives. From there, I'll rent and drive a car to Brantome (they don't feel comfortable driving, which is why I'm going), where my father's family was hidden in WWII. The drive is definitely a 2-day affair with the parents. Besides the Wine Route south from Strasbourg, are there any sights or towns you'd recommend that we visit?
Any good place to stop for the night that will leave four or less hours of driving the second day? On a map, Moulins seems like a good place to stop for the night. Maybe Paray-le-Monia, Digoin, Montlucon, or somewhere else would be better?
Thanks for your responses.

Resolved Question: Ideas for places to go in
We've only ever been to northern france for long weekends but are considering taking a 2 week holiday and driving down to southern France in August.
Therefore, we would really appreciate if anyone can give us some ideas of towns that we can look into staying in (we will be privately renting). We have heard not even to bother heading to the Cote D-Azur in August because of the crowds so are looking for somewhere less touristy but still with enough to do.
We are happy to look anywhere from mid to all the way down to the Spanish border, as long as its going to be hot and also we don't mind if it is inland or by the coast. We are just looking for traditional towns with some sort of nightlife but not crazy just nice bars and restaurants that are more local prices than tourist prices! If we could drive to a beach in under an hour that would be good but if it is really inland we would try and rent a place with a pool.
We look forward to hearing from anyone with some ideas! Thanks!

Resolved Question: Estimated daily food
My wife, daughter (in the single digits), and I will be in each of these places on our trip from mid-June to early July. I am trying to gauge the food costs generally. The US dollar has been on the decline, so where possible, I am trying to devise plans for saving some money on overall food costs while still visiting restaurants about once a day. Any advice is appreciated.
We have no plans for going to any truly fancy/gourmet restaurants. We don't mind street food occasionally either, so I figure these may help save a few dollars/euros.
