    • Touring Provence

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Jan 13, 2015 at 9:51 AM

      We are planning to tour Provence for several days from a central base.
      Which town/city would you recommend based both on location convenience as well as the qualities of the town itself?
      How would you recommend touring Provence; by car, bus, other?
      Any specific accomodation recommendations would also be welcomed.

    • 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.

    • Train from Nice to Saint-Remy-de-Provence, Arles, Nimes

      Nice Dec 18, 2014 at 9:37 AM

      We are staying in Nice for several months and would like to take a side trip for several days to see Saint- Remy-de- Provence, Arles and Nimes. From what I can tell those three towns are in fairly close proximity to one another. Does someone know if train travel is convenient for anyone of those three town and from there we can perhaps take local transportation to the other two. We do not want to rent a car which would probably be the easiest solution but it is not available to us.
      Thanks for any help.

    • 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,

      If yes, can you kindly suggest any place nearby which is worth visiting. Please note that we will be using public transport only.

      Are most shops in the winter months open or closed on town? I suppose what I am really asking is Saint-Remy-de-Provence very tourist-oriented?

      Can anyone help me with car parking outside Marseille?

      Marseille Sep 21, 2014 at 5:47 AM


      I wonder if anyone could recommend a safe place to park (public car park) east or southeast of Marseille? It should be close to a station or bus route so that we can get into Marseille. I do not want to take our car into Marseille.

      We are ideally looking for somewhere in La Valentine as we'll be visiting some shops there. We would then like to leave our car in the area to go into Marseille for half a day, maybe 5 or six hours. I don't think we can just leave our car in the car park of a shop. We know that there is a bus that runs through La Valentine to Marseille i.e. bus no. 50 [Castellane - Les Escourtines] so any public car park that is safe in the area would be our first choice.

      Many thanks

    • Travel to Aix-en-Provence from St. Tropez

      Aix-en-Provence Sep 10, 2014 at 4:12 PM

      I am trying to get from St. Tropez to Aix in early October. But from what I have read, there is no train station in St. Tropez and the only bus I could located (Line 36) only runs in the summer. After that, the bus starts in Le Luc, Le Cannet to Aix. I am wondering if I am reading that correctly, but more importantly, looking for any suggestions (other than renting a car one-way) to get from St. Tropez to Aix. Many thanks.

    • Provence with Kids

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Sep 8, 2014 at 2:14 AM


      I am seeking your advise about choosing location base for exploring Provence region for family with 2 kids (4 and 2 year old) during last 2 weeks of September.

      Interested in relatively small town (about couple of thousands of people) that will provide kids services such as public pool, playgrounds, supermarket, toys shop and will be close to hiking areas. Mainly required activity is hiking with kids couple of hours then enjoying life rest of the day :)

      It looks like there are not too many choices so I would like to ask your opinion in order to try and narrow it down.

      Thank you so much, Slava

I'm open to all suggestions as long as it's not too "touristy" and the prices are reasonable (I guess that's everyone's request) :-)
