    • The best area to stay in Annecy

      Annecy Jul 8, 2015 at 7:42 AM

      My wife and I will be staying in Annecy for 2 nights next month.
      We will arrive in Geneva on Saturday at 2 PM and most likely will have to take a private shuttle to Annecy because according to http://www.frossard.eu/ they only have one shuttle bus from the airport and that is at 21:10.
      They have a lot more shuttle services from Annecy to Geneva when we leave on Monday.
      Can anyone tell me where the bus shuttle will stop in Annecy? Is it the Annecy North bus station?

      Where will be the best area to stay in Annecy? Perhaps if I can have a hotel as a reference point that would be great.

      Is it advisable to do a 1/2 or 1 day tour?

      Thank you.

    • Annecy or Nice?

      Annecy Jun 16, 2015 at 11:29 PM

      Hi all! My friends and I are caught up between the two cities to visit. We have about 4 days 3 nights to spend in total (Over the weekend), and would like to spend it in one of the cities. We'll be visiting in either the last week of September or the first week of October. Any advice on weather, things to see/do would be great!!

      We heard that Nice is a really nice place (but I'm not sure why when I googled it, it doesnt seem as pretty as Annecy).

      Thank you in advance!

      Birthhouse info

      Lyon May 1, 2015 at 8:18 AM

      Hallo my friends. Actually I speak no French at all and this might be a problem in my case, that's why I need your advice. We will be in Paris for some days and I was thinking of Lyon as a day trip. Lyon has been in my heart as the city of the novels I have read as a young girl and thus it is some kind of a "need" to see her. Of course, Lyon of the 19th century must be a past now, but nevertheless it is Lyon after all.
      Sorry for the introduction. My main reason for asking your help is that Greek woman was born in Lyon in 1933 and her mother was burried in Lyon before she and her father returned to Greece. So, do you know if I have any chance of finding out the address of their house or the cemetary her mother was burried. Whom shall I contact in Lyon's town hall? Any advice?

      Chamonix drive holiday early October ? Napoleon route RN 85

      Chamonix-Mont-Blanc Jan 24, 2015 at 10:30 PM

      Group of 4 adults who are planning a driving holiday in France early Oct. Would love to see the mountains & are thinking of driving to Chamonix after some time in Cannes. I am wondering if the Napoleon route via Grasse is more scenic. I understand it takes longer than the autoroutes. Is it worth travelling to Chamonix or can we get good views of Mont Blanc along the way & stay elsewhere. We are not planning to hike just sight-see.

    • Summer weather: end July/beg August

      Annecy Sep 25, 2014 at 10:44 AM

      I was looking into staying in Avignon and Provence for 2 weeks next summer, but a few folks have said it would be way too hot and hectic in Avignon to enjoy it with young children (age 5 and 7). So, another friend has suggested Annecy. I know little about it, but thought I might as well start with the weather, with that being the nail in the Avignon coffin. From what I've scanned on wunderground, Annecy looks incredibly mixed: rain, sun, 30C, 19C all in one week. Is it really very changeable (with the mountains and all)? Is there much to do with kids if the weather turns cold and wet? I'm interested in wandering the old town/eating outside at night so kids can have some freedom, and swimming in the lake/cycling/walking a bit .... thanks for any advice. I'd just like to see if it is go-er b4 I plough as much research into it as I did Provence.

      I´ll be travelling around France with a rented car and need to go from Lyon to Paris. I was thinking of returning the car in Lyon and taking a flight or a train to Paris? Travelling by car and returning it in Paris is another option. What do you think?

      How long is the trip from Lyon to Paris by car, by plane and by TGV?

      How much does it cost each of these options?

      Ski to Verbier and Courmayeur, is it possible without a car?

      Chamonix-Mont-Blanc Sep 18, 2014 at 5:00 AM

      Hi there,

      I'll be traveling to Chamonix towards the end of January 2015. I'm not planning to rent a car and pretty much rely on using public transportation to move around. I'd like to try and ski in three countries! how difficult is to reach Verbier by using train or bus connections and and make it back to Cham the same day? I understand there is a direct shuttle bus every morning to Courmayeur center and takes about 45 mnts to get there. Say if you wanted to stay in town for dinner and get back to Chamonix around 9 or 10 pm with the bus, is this possible or do you have to take a very expensive taxi ride?

      Thank you.
