      Chamonix drive holiday early October ? Napoleon route RN 85

      Chamonix-Mont-Blanc 3 hours ago

      Group of 4 adults who are planning a driving holiday in France early Oct. Would love to see the mountains & are thinking of driving to Chamonix after some time in Cannes. I am wondering if the Napoleon route via Grasse is more scenic. I understand it takes longer than the autoroutes. Is it worth travelling to Chamonix or can we get good views of Mont Blanc along the way & stay elsewhere. We are not planning to hike just sight-see.

      Driving the West Coast of France?

      France Jan 10, 2015 at 1:07 PM

      Hi, my wife and I are going to drive up the west coast of France in early June. We hope to fly from Lisbon to Biarritz, rent a car and drive up the coast then to Paris. The only things we have on the agenda are the Dunes and Mount Saint Michel. We are looking for suggestions for interesting places or things. We have approximately 3 weeks before leaving from Paris back to Canada.
      Thank you

    • 4 days - Villefrance or Beaulieu-sur-mer??

      Beaulieu-sur-Mer Dec 27, 2014 at 7:41 PM

      Can't decide between these 2 lovely towns, these are our requirements:-
      1. easy to get in and out of the town by car, so that we can see the mountain villages and other places on the coast
      2. good local bars and restaurants (don't have to be fancy) to enjoy at night and just walk home to our accommodation
      3. nice local beach, clean water, private or public that we can enjoy without having to travel far from our accommodation. (or a very short drive)
      Would love to hear from local experts or those who have stayed in both towns? Thanks so much in advance.

    • Where to stay in Provence and Paris

      France Yesterday

      Hello,

      My husband and I (both in our early 30's) will be in France for 7-8 nights in mid May. We will be traveling from Barcelona most likely by train. We want to spend time in Provence. We would like to stay at a farmhouse. We like a mix of being in nature and relaxing, but also like to be close enough to a city that has restaurants and can walk around. We will have a car, and would like to be central enough to be able to take day trips.
      I would love a recommendation of:

      -where to stay

      - if we should stay in one place the whole time and take day trips or if we should stay in multiple locations
      -What towns should we go to on day trips/anything we need to see?
      - How many days should we spend in Provence and how many should we spend in Paris? We have both been to Paris, but never together, so I don't feel like I need a ton of time there.
      -What is the best area to stay in Paris? I will probably look at AirBnB for a small apartment. We like to be able to walk around, but don't need to be in a super touristy area. We will also be taking the train from here to London before flying back home.

      Thanks!
      Nicole

      France Jan 6, 2015 at 11:02 AM

      We have 3 weeks in France next summer, June 13 thru July 4. I already have the first 2 weeks booked with 7 days in Paris and 7 days in Chamonix. I need to find my way back to Paris over the next 6-7 days. We’ll have a car and are considering a scenic drive across France from Chamonix to Brittney and then back to Paris. I’m looking for suggestions for scenic roads and places to stay. We’re not beach lovers and would like to avoid very crowded places. We like to hike and enjoy the scenery, maybe visit a castle or two.

    • Parking in Nancy

      Nancy Jan 22, 2015 at 11:14 AM

      Hi,

      I have two bookings in Nancy and am trying to decide which one to keep. One is in the center of the city (rue Pierre Semard) and the other is on the outskirts (Laxou). I'd much prefer the one in the city, but it doesn't have parking (hotel says "Public parking is available at a nearby location and charges are applicable." Can anyone tell me how far away such parking lots are and how much they charge? We would only need it for one overnight.

      Thanks very much.

      Need advice about the wisdom of a late March visit

      by smeans2 Online Now Dec 12, 2010 at 4:22 PM

      I will be in Paris later in March, and I want to extend the trip to visit Bourges and Chartres (by train). I've discovered I could easily visit at least part of the Loire Valley (by car) en route from Bourges to Chartres, but I have to wonder if this is a crazy idea. I don't expect anyone to predict the weather, but is the area (roughly from Tours to Orleans) likely to be at all rewarding at this time of the year? Perhaps there will be a very early spring :-), but assuming there is not, I would appreciate any thoughts on my sanity. I should confess that while I would want to visit a major chateau or two, this would not be my primary interest--landscape, villages, churches are my things. I'm sure there are better times to visit, but I'm working with the opportunity I have.

      by pcsqueen Online Now Dec 16, 2005 at 9:33 PM

      Hi -

      My husband and I are staying in the Loire Valley between 27DEC05 and 01JAN06. I booked a hotel, Hôtel du Bon Laboureur, in Chenonceaux, based on its excellent reviews.
      Found out AFTER the reservation was set in stone (meaning that I'd have to pay, at a minimum, 50% charge to cancel) that the restaurant will be closed on New Year's eve. (Could they have noted that when I called to inquire about a room???????????)

      Since eating on premesis was my goal for the 31st, now I have to find someplace that is still accepting reservations. I've tried three places already, only to be told that they are booked.
      The reservation folks at Bon Laboureru aren't much help, other than giving me names and phone numbers of places in Amboise. I have to call the restaurants and inquire about reservations.

      Can anyone recommend a small, bistro-type restaruant in Amboise. I'm reluctant to drive to far afield; plus, right about now, I'm not in the mood to don formal attire, which is required at many of the booked-up restaurants.

      Thanks in advance.

      Merry Christmas! Joyeaux Noel! Froliche Weinacht!
