      Hello everyone!

      Are there any recommendations for services who can provide a private boat outings to the Calanques? Nothing extravagant is necessary - just a reasonably priced boat that can support a group of 10-15 individuals with a captain.

      Thank you (:

      Which Town is best as a base. Avignon? Arles? Aix? St. Remy?

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Oct 8, 2015 at 12:03 AM

      Hello Friends,

      Hope you're all well! We are taking a short impromptu trip to Provence and would love some advice.

      We will be making a loop from Torino through the Tunnel of Frejus to the area somewhere around Avignon where we will stay 3ish nights to explore the area.

      Would you give me some advice on which town would be the best to use as a base? We will have car so that we can explore during the day, but we'd like a town that is interesting in its own right with restaurants, shops and sites.

      Would you give us some advice on the best town to use as a base?

      Thank you and hope to see you around


      • Any other tidbits on places not to miss would be greatly appreciated too.

    • Looking for a place to stay in Provence for 3 months

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Sep 29, 2015 at 3:14 PM

      My husband and I (both in our mid 30's) want to spend 3 months in Provence with our small dog. We want to be outside of a city center near vineyards, but be close enough to walk, bike, or take a short bus ride into a major city as we won't have a car. I was thinking maybe near Avignon, but I would love to hear other suggestions. Our budget is $1000 USD per month. Is this realistic? Also, is France pretty dog friendly? Thanks!

      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.

      Where to get off the bus in the Camargue?

      Arles Aug 1, 2015 at 3:55 AM

      I have looked over answers given to 'BeckyR9' on where to visit by public transport in the Arles area. We are hoping to look around Arles in the morning and take public transport into the Camargue, for a walk along the paths through the lagoons, in the afternoon. We have no wish to travel all the way to St Maries de la Mer so can anyone suggest where we should get off the bus enroute? More for the wild life and ambiance of the landscape if that is possible. (a few horses and flamingoes would be a bonus)
