      Daycares/drop in programs for young kids while on vacation

      Nice Mar 10, 2015 at 12:02 AM

      Hi everyone,
      We are planning to spend 2 weeks in Nice in August and I'm looking for a possiblity of my kids (4 and 6) being immersed in French language/ culture by spending some time with French speaking kids. They are in French program here in Canada and know basics, and I'm thinking that it would be very benefitial for them to have that exposure ( couple hours a day/ half day or so).
      Is there any drop in programs that you would know of and would recommend.
      Thank you!!!!

    • Nice in August

      Nice 4 hours ago

      My wife and I are planning a 3 day stop over in Nice during Mid August. We plan to base ourselves in Nice and visit places like St tropez, Cannes, Vence and Eze. Our original plan was to hire a car and drive to these areas but a little concerned with the areas being busy during the peak periods.

      Can anyone give some tips on travelling around?

      Camping in cote d'azur

      Nice Mar 10, 2015 at 10:28 PM

      Hi everyone again!
      We came up with the idea of renting a cottage/ cabin on a family friendly campground site. Now we need some suggestions. Here's what our criteria is:
      Ideally where no car is needed ( we will be likely coming by train from Paris)
      Kids club on site
      Options of getting groceries close by
      Proximity to the beach
      Clean and safe
      Budget friendly

      Wondering If a place like this is even existent or is it too much to ask for. If you have any ideas, please post, i would be very grateful. My french is quite limited and it's tough to do research on my own.

      Location near beach and mountains, Cote d'Azur

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Mar 15, 2015 at 3:14 AM

      Hello,

      We are planning a 3 week summer holiday in France (August-September) and I am thinking somewhere between Nice and Menton/Ventimiglia (Italy).

      During our holidays we usually spend 1 day relaxing at the beach and the next day hiking, so close proximity to the beach and being close to the main roads into the mountains is a must.

      Accommodation at walking distance of the beach would be great, but alternatively a place more into the mountains/mainland, about 30 min driving from the beach, would be acceptable as well since we'll have a car.

      A sandy beach is appreciated but not a must.

      We don't care for nightlife and prefer a quiet place over busy city (such as Nice).

      We just need a simple apartment with kitchen, and somewhere to sit outside like a balcony or garden....We won't be spending too much time in the apartment anyway.

      Do you have any suggestions on the best locations to stay?

      Thanks for your time!

      Dennis

      Holiday rentals

      Nice Feb 27, 2015 at 7:49 AM

      Hi everyone!

      I'm looking to stay in Nice, France for 5 days over the summer with my daughter and her two children (age 7 and 12). We are going there mainly for a relaxing time, and would be seeking accommodation near the beach, and fairly central. I am not fond of the hustle and bustle of hotels in big towns so we'd prefer an apartment or a holiday complex, unless someone has any recommendations?

      Has anyone heard of any good agencies?

      Thanks,
      Lola

      Not City Pass, but Transportation Pass

      Marseille Feb 2, 2015 at 8:11 AM

      We'd like to purchase a 24 hour transportation pass in Marseille. According to what I've read the pass -- don't know the name -- is similar to the Mobilis Pass in Paris. However, it seems that like the Paris Visite, the City Pass is pushed to tourists. We wouldn't mind purchasing the City Pass if we were going to be there longer, but we're not -- only enough time to walk around and see a few things, in addition to dining in a restaurant. Where can one purchase the 24 hours, 5 Euros (or thereabouts) transportation pass, not the City Pass? Thanks!

      Question asked today lost.

      Aix-en-Provence Feb 1, 2015 at 10:28 PM

      I already asked this question today, but I think it was lost. We will be based in Aix-en-Provence for about 5 1/2 days. We arrive on a Saturday late in the afternoon, and we are thinking about taking a day trip to Marseille the next day. However, we are debating between that and just enjoying Aix en Provence that day. On Monday, we will take a day trip to Nice by bus. On Tuesday, we're taking a day trip to Avignon, and on Wednesday we're taking a mini-van tour to Arles, St. Remy, and Les Baux. Thursday, we plan to spend in Aix. The next day we head to Paris on the TGV for two nights and fly out the next morning. So, on the one hand, I feel like it would be a shame NOT to see Marseille, but on the other, I feel like taking a little more relaxed trip by staying in Aix is the better plan. Any thoughts?

      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.

      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.

    • 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,

      Can anyone help me with car parking outside Marseille?

      Marseille Sep 21, 2014 at 5:47 AM

      Hi,

      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
