      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.

    • Where to stay in Provence and Paris

      France Jan 23, 2015 at 11:17 AM

      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!

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.

      Barging in Burgundy

      Bourgogne 20 hours ago

      Dear Friends,

      I hope you are all doing well! I have a question regarding barging in Burgundy. I am planning to spend a week or two this summer barging with wife and baby along with 2 sets of grandparents. I am reasonably early in the process, but have had some advice which suggests starting at Joigny and self piloting (grandparent is an experienced boater) a penichette boat.
      Current options might be:

      1. Joigny round trip. Yonne and Canal Nivernais?
      2. Joigny to Montbard via Canal du Bourgogne

      I wonder if people have any advice on this idea. Is Joigny a good place to start? Are these Canals nice? with good spots to stop off and enjoy a stroll, food, sites?

      Any other suggestions? As it's summer I'd like to avoid the most trafficked spots (I think Canal du Midi)

      Is there anything else I should know? Or any good resources or companies?

      Many thanks! It's nice to be around again...

      Best Wishes,

      Giampiero

Hubby is still apprehensive about driving in France and is worried about what it is like getting off the ferry in Boulogne, we went there on a day trip about 19 years ago and the roads were so busy.

Can you recommend nice things to do on the sunday walks/drives/sightseeing (the nautica place is going to closed when I am thinking of going). Also can you recommend a hotel - centre of the town is best. If its out of town it should have a restaurant within walking distance (preferable a choice of restaurants as I am a vege!).
