      Honfleur Aug 26, 2015 at 5:25 AM

      Hi, Myself and a Friend are doing an 8 day cycle tour round france. I was cheaper t take the car and park in le harve than pay £80 parking in Portsmouth but I am now wondering if that will be safe and whether we should drive the short distance to honfluer which we planned to stop at and park there for the 8 days.. Does anyone have any experience of good places to park in honluer for longer than 24 hours , if it is safe and if not what le harve is like for parking (safe wise). Thanks in advance. Finding it really hard to find out!

      My Nice trip queries

      Nice Aug 15, 2015 at 2:01 AM

      I have the following queries regarding my trip next week - please help!

      - I will be in Nice on sunday and monday. Cours saleya market was only half-a-day on sunday and not open on Monday. I will have around 30-45 mins to spend at this place before close. Will this place at it best being closing time or they would have wind-up everything at the close time.

      - I find from map that I may need to travel 1.5 to 2kms between my wish list places few times. Tram is not helping much as google maps shows walk + tram is almost same as walking the distance fully. Being with my daughters aged 10 and 6, I find the planned walking distance too much for a day - if I want to use taxi less than 2km, how much will they charge me - are taxi ranks common.

    • local taxi companies BASED in Cap d;agde

      Languedoc-Roussillon Aug 9, 2015 at 9:35 AM

      Hi all,
      despite going to cap d'agde for holidays for many years, we have never had to use a taxi as we have always had the car.
      Our next trip will have to be without the car as age has finally beaten us I'm afraid. How we will cope I just don't know but Cap d'Agde is too good to miss.
      So I am hoping it will be possible to travel to where we want to travel by Taxi . For instance..... locally to the town, or to Beziers or a trip to Montpelier or to Agde ( I know there is a bus to Agde so that would not be too bad) .

      What I need information about, is to know if there IS a local Taxi Company or taxi companies actually based IN Cap D'agde so that we would be able to call one locally ie quickly without having to call them in from Agde or further away than that.

      any help on this would be really appreciated.

      Wine tour and tasting in Beaune

      Beaune May 30, 2015 at 5:41 PM

      It appears Beaune has no scarcity in producers offering wine tours and tasting. There is Louis Jadot, Joseph Drouhin, Bouchard, Patriarche and then also Marche aux Vins, to name a few. They all offer tours from about €11-€38, tasting 4-13 wines varying from village to grand cru in quality. Some are by appointment only, others are walk-in.
      I know Gwened tips Jadot, Bouchard and Patriarche.
      If I had to choose one, which would give me the best opportunity to savor a cross-section of Burgundy wines (both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, village to grand cru) in the most delightful setting?
      Does anyone have any experience of a matching wine degustation menu within a cellar?
      Thanks in advance for the feedback!

      Hello there! My son and I will be in France soon and we would like to go to flavigny. We can get to Dijon from Paris by train and from there, go to Flavigny. I was looking for tours(we love tours...more than exploring on our own) and found a half day from Dijon to Flavigny(and other villages around it) by FRANCE.COM. Never heard about "France.com" tours and was wondering if anyone knows about them...or any other tour company(tours to Flavigny and surroundings). The other option is to rent a car...we go to France very often, but never did rent a car. I am not that carefree and always super afraid of getting lost, road condition, traffic, crazy drivers, how to find a gas station, etc. If anyone knows about roads and how simple is to drive(probably it is) from Dijon to Flavigny, please let me know. Thanks!!!!

      Combining wine tasting with accommodation

      Was wondering if anyone has good tips on vineyard hotels in or near Beaune? We only have one overnight there and would like to maximize our wine tasting opportunities. Would it be better to stay in a cozy hotel in Beaune and go for a town-based wine-tasting (perhaps paired with dinner) or would it be best to stay at a vineyard and experience the wine there?
      Any recommendations would be highly appreciated! Thanks.

      Barging in Burgundy

      Bourgogne Jan 31, 2015 at 7:48 AM

      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

      Vineyard accommodation

      Bourgogne Nov 30, 2014 at 10:59 PM

      Despite researching the subject, both on VT and the web, I'm struggling to get a clear picture of accommodation at a vineyard in Bourgogne. I'll only be there overnight, so I'd prefer to combine my accommodation and wine tasting. Preferably something close enough to Beaune to go wandering around the illuminated buildings in the evening, but will be perfectly happy staying at a scenic nearby village such as Meursalt or Pommard, or even north of Beaune.
      Anyone with wonderful experiences at such a place?
