      Car Rental

      Paris Jan 25, 2017 at 3:02 PM

      I want to visit Auver Sur Oise when I am in Paris next time (April) and was thinking I might rent a car to drive there and back. I think there is only one train in and one train out per day (direct on weekends). What location would be the best to rent the car so that I can avoid driving through the streets of Paris? I don't mind taking the metro to get to the car rental place, I just want to find a location on the outskirts of Paris in the direction of Auver Sur Oise. Thanks in advance.

      Where to get off the bus in the Camargue?

      by chrisdScotland Online Now 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)

      My sister and I will be in the area the end of August. We haven't been to Europe before so it will all be new. I've read some reviews on both - the high crime rate seems to be a concern with Marseilles. Which would be better to stay at do you think?
      Thank you very much in advance :)

      What not to miss in Arles and the region?

      by graphicscorpio Online Now May 21, 2014 at 8:56 AM

      Dear Friends,
      My husband and I have begun a 6 week house exchange in Arles! (We will be here until mid-June.) We have a car included and we are hoping to keep the distance that we drive it to about 100 miles in any direction. I would love to hear any tips that you care to share on any subject that may not be in one's typical tour book...places to eat, places to shop, places to swim, day trips from Arles, overnight trips to enjoy, places to swim. Anything that we should not miss. Unfortunately in this lovely country where a baguette is part of the daily diet, I have to eat gluten free (celiac). So any info on gluten-free eating would also be most welcome. Thank you so much!

Is there any type of car service that can pick her up at the hotel and take her directly to the airport? I do not want her to have to travel by train and then transfer to bus, etc. I would prefer to hire a car from a limo service instead of using a taxi. Any suggestions?

    • Train from Arles to Marseilles Vitrolle Station

      by Tiffanychynna Online Now Mar 22, 2014 at 10:51 AM

      Our river cruise ends in Arles and we have a flight booked that day (a Thursday) from Marseilles to Paris. Can we take a taxi from the cruise port to the train station and buy the train tickets when we get there? Is there a manned ticket window or just machines for tickets? Our flight doesn't leave until 1:40 pm and by looking at the train schedule it looks like there are a few morning trains that travel that route.

      I bought a hand made porcelain wall hanging of a Provencal farandole woman dancer in a shop in Arles. I would like to buy more, but cannot find any on the Internet. Can anyone help me find this item. The "lady" is about 10" tall, hangs flat against the wall & came in various dress colors. There is a stamp in the porcelain on the back which is in a small ova, which reads:

      L'Atelier des Cefel(?)(?)
      E. Figuere
      a Mourtier(?)(?)

      Where is the bus stop in Arles for the SNCF bus to the Avignon TGV station?

      by Sandypaws3 Online Now Jun 2, 2013 at 1:03 PM

      We were planning to take a train from Arles to Avignon and then the navette to the Avignon TGV station, but I noticed in Rick Steves that there is a direct SNCF bus to the Avignon TGV station. We would take that on the way back to Aix-en-Provence, so I think it would save a little time. I looked and saw that there is a bus station in Arles, as well as the train station, but then it dawned on me that Rick Steves didn't say where to catch the SNCF bus. Anyone know?

We will be looking for a place to park for the afternoon and the only parking deck I could find in on the Blvd. des Lices, right in the middle of the Saturday market. Can any one suggest a safe place to leave our car for a few hours? Will we be able to see a few highlights of Arles in this amount of time? Thanks.

      One more question for the very-helpful folks who know the area around Arles: When we leave Arles, we would like to drive through the Luberon area with no itinerary, stopping when the spirit (or the scenery) moves us. Is that possible in mid to late September, or will we risk sleeping in the car if we have no reservations at that time of year?
