      Does anyone know the name of the baby store in Vaison-la-Romain that carries the beautifully soft, pastel-colored stuffed dolls and toys? It is on the right-hand side of the street as you walk up toward the old city and away from the market. We bought a doll there for our granddaughter and it was lost in the mail.

    • Euros finale

      Paris Jun 25, 2016 at 8:26 AM

      We are 7 students from the Netherlands and we are visiting Lalobbe, a small village near Rethel, in a few weeks.
      We arrive the 9th of July, and we are interested in visiting Paris 10 July (when the Euros final is played).
      We want to watch the final on a big screen or in a bar, but we face a few difficulties.
      First we like to know what the best way is to visit Paris. Is it possible to drive , and park there, since its a very crowded day? ( having to walk about an hour to the car is not a problem).
      Secondly, if we take the train from Reims to Paris, is it possible to get back to Reims before the morning?
      If we can't reach Reims before the morning, are there some good clubs or bars open till late in the night so we can party there? And are those clubs expensive to get in to?

    • RER to CDG or Shuttle service

      France Jul 17, 2016 at 10:04 AM

      Have been to Paris previously. This trip my hotel is near Odeon metro stop & St. Germaine. I took RER to CDG last time and had no delay and service was good. Is it easy to get to RER from this location? Hotel is Grand deBalcons. Or, is a shuttle service better choice, and not too expensive. If I can get picked up at hotel would consider shuttle. Need to get there for A/F flight to Copenhagen leaving 1:40pm on a Saturday. Think I got RER last time from GareduNord so RER might be fastest service. Thank you to all for assistance.

      Quirky restaurant

      Nice Jul 10, 2016 at 10:48 AM

      Years ago we ate in a restaurant in Nice that was owned by an elderly woman and her sister or daughter (can't quite remember). It was in the old town and it was very basic, I don't think there was even a menu, you just ate what you were served. It was all local, homemade food. Can anyone tell me the name of the restaurant and whether or not it's still there?

      Thanks!
