We are planning a trip to the area on one week.
We will land in Lyon on a Wednesday.
I need help planning the route.
I am looking to:
1) Stay in one or two places and do short day trips which the elder can cope with (her sister still rides in a backpack)
2) We mainly want a hiking and lakes vacation
3) I would prefer to stay somewhere where I can cook though the dates are problematic as we arrive and leave on a Wednesday rather than a Saturday.
I thought of basing my self in the Vercors natural reserve - Is there any bathing beach in the vicinity ?
Do you have rec. for day trips ?
Do you suggest I stay somewhere else ?
