    • Pearl cottages Cap d'agde

      Le Cap d'Agde Nov 19, 2014 at 7:28 AM

      My wife and i went to Cap d'Agde this summer in July and had a fantastic time. We went to the beach everyday, restaurants like Waiki beach for lunch, the Sun Beach bar for drinks as well as the foam parties. We also enjoyed the clubs like Glamour and Tantra at night. However we stayed in a town near Cap d'agde because we thought that staying in Cap dAgde might be too intense for the entire vacation. We were wrong. We want to go back in 2015 but this time stay in the naturist village. We heard the Pearl cottages are really nice. Does anyone know these cottages ?

      Transport from Mezt town center to Parc des expositions de Metz

      Metz Dec 2, 2014 at 4:29 AM

      Hello all,

      Im planning to attend a function at Parc des expositions de Metz or Mezt Expo in November 2015. I did some readings from posting and blogs in planning this trip (my first trip to Europe, anyway). But there are few things that i would like to confirm to...

      1) is there any bus or shuttle bus that going up to the Metz expo from the town center? and the cost too..

      2) which area is the best place to stay in Mezt for low budget/backpackers traveller? i've looked at Auberge de la Jeunesse de Metz.. but im afraid it would be pretty far from the public transport... for a non-french speaking tourist like me

      your kind replies are highly appreciated. thank u. :)

    • New Year's Eve in Rennes

      Rennes Dec 15, 2014 at 9:52 AM

      Hello. I am taking my partner as a surprise for New Year to France and we are arriving in Rennes early-mid afternoon on the 31st. We are staying in an apartment, so as to give us a choice over eating in or dining out.
      A few questions, therefore :

      1) We are arriving in to Dinard airport on the morning of the 31st – what is the best way to get from the airport to Rennes ? I understand there is a bus from Pleurtuit or are we better getting the train from St Malo ?
      2) What time are shops open on the 31st (in case we need to buy groceries to cook our dinner that evening) ?
      3) Will restaurants be very busy (as it is New Year’s Eve) and should we therefore book in advance ? (Also : any recommendations ?)
      4) What should we seek out (and what should we avoid ?!?) as midnight strikes ?
      5) Any other suggestions or thoughts on what we should see or do.
      Very many thanks in advance.

      Europcar dependability/Saint Pierre des Corps TGV Station

      Tours Dec 12, 2014 at 4:47 PM

      Has anyone had experience renting an automatic transmission car from Europcar at the TGV station in Saint Pierre des Corps? Avis says "sold out," Hertz says "can't book on line--call" (not encouraging), and Europcar offers exactly what I want. Are they trustworthy? Sixt did this to me once (said "yes," had zip). I will not use them again. I know automatics are hard to find in France outside of airport locations, but If Europcar says they will provide one, what are my chances?

    • Retina specialist

      Nice Dec 10, 2014 at 8:40 AM

      My wife and I are heading back to Nice for three months. Unfortunately, we were delayed due to a torn retina which required me to have laser retina surgery. My doctor said I have weak retinas since this is the second time it happened. In case this happens again I would like to contact a retina specialist during my stay.

      Does anyone know of a retina specialist, not necessarily a personal recommendation but a facility that performs this kind of surgery, in Nice or environs? I have searched Google, spoken to one facility in Nice, Nice Retina at 2 Rue Eugene Emmanuel,  without success. Any help would be greatly apreciated. Thank you,

      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?

    • getting to Cirey-sur-Blaise

      Champagne-Ardenne May 21, 2014 at 5:16 AM

      Hello,

      I'd like to visit the chateau in Cirey where Emilie du Chatelet and Voltaire lived in late July or early August, and I'm wondering if anyone can advise me on getting there.

      1) I'd prefer not to drive; but if I have to rent a car, all I have is a valid Canadian driver's license - is that enough?

      2) I know I can get to within a reasonable distance of Cirey by train, such as Bar-sur-Aube or Joinville, but I haven't had much luck finding out if there is some kind of bus or other public transportation that can get me the rest of the way there. If it's not possible to get directly from one of these places to Cirey, can I at least get closer, so that a taxi would be less expensive?

      3) Is there a hotel or other accommodations available in Cirey? The closest I've been able to find so far is in Arnancourt, about 3.5 km away.

      Many thanks for your help!

      Champagne tours

      Reims May 3, 2010 at 5:51 AM

      There seems to be many champagne-houses in Reims. And some of them have tours,you can join.

      If we would visit one, which one would you suggest us to choose?
      -It should be possible to visit without booking ahead (because we don´t know the time when we could visit)
      -It should have an English tour.(We like those tours with info about champagne-making)
      -It should be open on saturday

      And of course,it wouldn´t hurt,if there is a tasting-(I guess most of them have it) and we haven´t never tasted champagne!!! I mean we have tasted cava and prosecco, but not champagne. In cava and prosecco we choose usually semi-dry or sometimes dry.Not those VERY dry or sweet ones.

      We have visited port-wine caves in Porto (and we don´t even like port..) and many brewerys,whiskey-"factory",some winery.. But we haven´t seen any place with any kind of sparkling wine.
