      Hi, my husband and I are going to be in Bandol for 2 nights and I would like to know if it is necessary to book wine tasting with an organised group or can one just arrive at the Winery? Neither of us speak French unfortunately.

      What is the best way to visit the calanques if you're NOT based in Marseilles? Will be travelling from Carcassonne to Nice. Is it practical to stop off at Cassis and do a boat trip or hike out to the calanques?

      Any advice on best calanque to visit, best hike, best boat tour?

      Voyages-sncf Tickets

      Marseille May 16, 2015 at 2:44 PM

      I hope to take a train from Marseille to Lyon - morning of 5th September. Last Saturday (9th May) I was on the Voyages-sncf site to see how near to that date they were taking booking. I found they were taking bookings up to Sunday 30th August. I thought that would mean today, a week later, they would possibly be up to my date but it's still only up to 30th August. I know it is usually only 3 months ahead you can book. I have asked that they send me a message when tickets go on sale but is that really likely to be another 3 weeks time?

      Best perched villages

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Apr 29, 2015 at 11:36 PM

      Bonjour! Any suggestions on the "best" villages-perchés within convenient driving distance of Nice / Cannes?

      By "best" I mean: very scenic, scenically located (panoramic views), good lunch options (perhaps restaurant with view; or good charcuterie / boulangerie), historically or culturally interesting.

      Ones that appear to fit the bill are: (roughly east of Nice) Eze, La Turbie, Peillon and Luceram, (roughly west of Nice) Le Broc, Biot, St Paul de Vence, Tourettes-sur-Loup and Gourdon. Any comments re these, or ones I've missed?

      Time-wise, (and driving either up or down the coast) how many perched villages would it be sensible to visit in one day?

      Any practical advice re visiting perched villages?

      Traffic congestion

      Nice May 7, 2015 at 6:57 PM

      I got some very good suggestions on the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur forum for smaller towns to see within easy reach of Nice.

      Based on that feedback, I am considering driving to Eze and La Turbie in one day, driving to Haut de Cagnes, St Paul de Vence and Tourettes-sur-Loup on another day, and Peillon and Luceram on a third day.
      Will be based in Nice near Mont Boron from about 18-22 September.

      I am only concerned about traffic, and seek advice on how congested it would be at this time and how best to avoid the worst of it?

      Thank you!

    • 4 day Provence Itinerary

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur May 2, 2015 at 9:47 PM


      My husband and I (both early 30's) Have 4 full days (Tues-Sat) in Provence and will be staying in Maubec with a car. We have never been and I am feeling overwhelmed by all of the places to see. I think we want to go to: Marseille & Cassis, Arles, Avignon, Lourmarin, St Remy, Gordes, L'isle sur la Sorgue. We would love to visit markets and find beautiful places to picnic, and maybe do some light hiking. I read Pont du Gard is a nice place to go, and maybe Gorges du Verdon but it looks like It might be too far. Which of these places can we bundle together and see in one day and do any need a full day? Any specific activities worth booking? The only thing scheduled so far is a Truffle Hunting tour for a couple hours Wednesday evening. We don't want to fill our schedule up too much, and want to make sure there is plenty of time to just enjoy the beauty around us so if we need to remove any of these places which do we cut out?

      Thanks so much for your help!

Could anyone advise on how best to travel ie bus or train & costs involved. We plan to travel at the end of September so unsure if that affects regularity of services due to being out of season.

      HELP! Questions about buses & trains between Juan-les-Pins and Cannes...

      by bettyo70 Online Now Mar 29, 2012 at 9:07 AM

      Hi Everybody,

      I had a few questions about mass transit between JLP and Cannes:

      1) Are trains safe during the evening? (Sometimes I come across articles about teenagers committing crimes on French trains at night. With the bad economy now, I just want to make sure trains are okay. I know the distance between JLP and Cannes is small, but would love to hear thoughts from people who have taken the train between the two stations); and

      2) How much longer does the bus take than the train between the two locations?

      3) Does the train offer a Weekly Pass like the bus does? Or is it pay-per-trip only by train?

      Thanks so much for your help!

    • Basketball courts in the area??

      by amroo_s Online Now Jul 19, 2008 at 4:47 PM

      I was just wondering where I could find any indoor/outdoor basketball courts in the Juan les Pins/Gulfe Juan area. The courts by my apartment are under construction and I don't know any decent place for my friends and I to go play. I did find another place in gulfe Juan but those courts were for kids (rims were 2 feet lower than they should be).

      If anyone could help me then that would be great thanks!

      Train Station in Juan-les-pins?

      by AdrienneR Online Now Apr 19, 2008 at 12:58 PM

      Hi - I'm staying at the Hotel Welcome in Mid-May - how far is it to the train station? Assuming there is one in the Juan-les-pins area . . .

      I'll be on that side fo the Cote d'Azur for 3 days 2 nights and would like to head up to Eze. Then day 2 head over to Monaco in the morning, changing of the guard, lunch, then take the train back over to Nice, then back to Juan-Les-Pins.

      I'll have a car but would prefer to not navigate parking in Monaco or Nice. Any help would be appreciated! I've tried the SNCF web site but I'm not able to dig down into train schedules. Perhaps someone can direct me to one?

      Thanks! - Adrienne
