Reims is a good day trip, with the champagne cellars and cathedral.
Also interesting is the Salle de Redition (Surrender Room ) Museum,
where the Allies accepted the German surrender. It is a few minutes walk
from the Mumm cellars.

Beaune and Dijon are also good, especially if you are a wine drinker,
but you would have to get an early start.

I'm liking Reims or Chartes - have been to all the other suggestions.
Which would be easiest on a 'late start' day? We are known for moving
very slowly in the am on vacation & probably won't get to the train
station til 11 or noon...

It was pretty wet in August too a couple of years ago. Pouring thunder
showers. Lots of puddles in the parking lots at the chateaux.
