    • Shore Exhursion at La Seyne Sur Mer on August 19?

      Toulon Jul 4, 2014 at 11:22 AM

      The cruise ship is going to port at La Seyne Sur Mer 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on August 19. We are not sure whether we should visit Toulon (e.g. cable car ride and swim at the beach) or visit Bandol and Sanary Sur Mer. My teenage child would certainly love to have a swim for a couple of hours at a lovely beach. Any suggestions? If it is the latter, please provide travel information from La Seyne Sur Mer to Bandol and Sanary Sur Mer. Is it easy to take a cab from ther back to the port and how much would that cost?

      Coming to La Ciotat via Navette 69

      La Ciotat Jun 25, 2014 at 1:25 AM

      Bonjour! I'm heading down to La Ciotat tomorrow for a very brief sejour with a friend. It will be my first time in the town and I'm very much looking forward to exploring the Vieux Port and beautiful calanques.

      I have, however, run into a bit of a situation with transport. I will be arriving from Grenoble at the gare de Marseille Saint-Charles, where I plan to check my rather cumbersome suitcase for the weekend. I had planned to simply take a regional train from Marseille to La Ciotat, but have since realized that the train would drop me off at the Gare SNCF in La Ciotat, which is a bit of a hike from where I'd like to be.

      I'm now planning to take the La Ciotat/Marseille navette (ligne 69) that runs in between the two cities. It seems to be the best option, as it is inexpensive and would drop me off at the Gare Routiere in La Ciotat, right in the center of town! However, the navette departs NOT from the Gare Saint-Charles, but from the Halte routiere sud in Marseille. Could anyone tell me about this bus stop? How to get to it from the train station? (It looks like there should be a M1 metro stop in the area.) How long it takes to get there? Where you can buy tickets?

      Je vous remercie par avance! Thank you in advance.

    • Provence - Avignon - St Remi - Cassis

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Jul 14, 2014 at 2:44 PM

      Hello, we are a couple mid 30's traveling to Provence middle of August. We have full three days three nights and will have a car. We are planning to arrive to Avignon, and would like to see as much of the surrounding areas as possible. I understand that Provence area is large and three days doesn't cut it. The points of interest for us would be St Remi, Nimes, Arlington, Cassis. I believe all of these are fairly close, however for three day travel still far. What would you recommend as the top experiences i.e. are lavender fields a must see (given the timing in mid August, i believe their season is in July). Is there anything in these towns that stands out different from other places. (like for example in Albi/Carcassone those magnificent churches are very memorable and impressive). Is there a consortium on few places/things that are a must in the area? We are flexible in stopping by in different hotels while driving among these places. We love beautiful architecture, however, if we get a chance to see beautiful nature we are interested as well. Thank you in advance.

      Hi there

      My boyfriend and I are holidaying in Cannes on 11th Sept 07 for 10 days. I've been trying to find out about a few things but to no avail...can anyone please help?? Im so excited :-)

      Questions are:

      1) Is it easy enough to get a boat trip to St Tropez from Cannes? I so, can I book something online or any idea how much they cost on average....certainly not looking for my own crew....just a public poorpers tour please heee heeee.

      2) I've hired a car so we can get to as many places as poss. Any other places anyone can recommend that we should visit apart from St Tropez (by boat), Cannes, Nice and Monaco??

      3) This might be me being naive or extremely stoopid....can the general public (the poorpers again) get into Club 55? If so, any idea on how to book? The website doesn't give any indication how apart from a phone number.

      4) Just a general guide on how much the cost of living is. I've found out about Cannes - seems suprisingly normal (i.e. bottle of water €0.50, 3 course meal €35). Was just wondering about St Tropez and Monaco. We have spends of around £2000 for the whole 10 days, does anyone think we need more?? Jeepers!

      Thanks so much for your help. I've been on the net for 3 days looking for as much info as I can, but these are the last few questions I have.

      We are planning a week on the Cote d'Azur in September. We will be staying in St Tropez for 3 nights and are trying to decide on a hotel. We want to be walking distance from restaurants, and have car parking.

      We have found the following hotels:

      Le Mouillage - Looks lovely, car parking, swimming pool
      Port Du Bastide - Looks nice, car parking - no pool

      Le Mouillage looks the nicest but I think it's a bit further than Port du Bastide. Can anyone tell me if they are far apart? Is Le Mouillage too far?

      Has anyone stayed at either of these hotels - I can't find any reviews anywhere.

      People also mentioned the Sube. I know the location is great - but there is no car parking ...

      Any help appreciated.
