    • Provence France1 week extra

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Jan 16, 2017 at 11:47 AM

      I will be ending a tour of southern France on a Thursday - end of Sept 2017. The tour will include: Pont du Gard, Arles, Les Baux, and Nice. I will have 7 days (following Thursday night) to get back to Paris for return flight.
      What would be a good trip? I have not seen Monaco, Antibes, Cannes, Marseilles, Aix en Provence, Vaison la Romaine. I would not mind going to Orange again. Prefer TGV rail over driving, but could rent a car for short trips.

    • Summer holiday

      France Jan 11, 2017 at 3:11 AM

      Sorry to hear this site is shutting down.

      I had an incredible summer honeymoon in Switzerland thanks entirely to commenters on this forum. I'm really grateful.

      This question is very broad but I thought I might get lucky again!

      Hoping for a may/June family holiday this year.
      Traveling with a three year old and a one year old.
      Beach, hotel, pools, nature, good food, a nice little town nearby.
      We really want it to be child friendly with food and drink readily available but not too big a complex.
      Also considering Italy and Greece, I'll post over there too.

      Many thanks if you have any thoughts!

      Paris with kids

      Paris Jan 13, 2017 at 6:23 AM

      Hello Paris experts ;-)

      We'll be attending the U2 show in Paris on July 25 and want to add a couple of extra days in and around the city.
      I don't yet know where we'll be staying.

      Our boys - who will be 9 and 11 by then - will be joining us. In fact it was their idea go along to a show and then our oldest one decided he wanted to see the Eiffeltower ... And what's a mum to do then but to buy tickets for the Stade de France then ... anything to keep the young ones happy (and now I can 'blame' them for the trip ;-) ).

      We'll likely arrive there around noon on friday 21st and leave for home again on wednesday 26th.

      Do any of you have a suggestion as on what kids might enjoy doing. The Eiffeltower is a must. Besides that: they don't mind a museum (as long as it doesn't take an entire day), they like history and they're not fussy about walking.
      I've read something about the sewers tour ... do you think that's worth doing with kids?

      As always: thanks for your input!

      Any must sees or must eats?

      Carcassonne Jan 11, 2017 at 6:22 PM

      We will be spending a few days in Carcassonne in May-June and have things pretty well sorted out. However, it would be nice to hear from you if you have any suggestions for things we should not miss. Also, restaurant recommendations would be welcome for Carcassonne, Narbonne, Beziers and/or Collioure.

      Thanks - this could well be my last question before VT gets the deep six.

    • Hotel in Le Havre

      by cl3150 Online Now Jun 5, 2012 at 4:27 AM

      We will be staying in Le Havre on a Sunday night in early September at the end of a cruise, and need to select a nice hotel. Because we will not be able to rent a car until the following morning, we need to be in Le Havre rather than one of the outlying towns. I'd like a recommendation. The twobest-looking places online appear to be the Pasino and the Mercure at the Basin. Which is the nicer of the two? Are there others directly in Le Havre that would be better?


    • Renting a car on a Sunday

      by cl3150 Online Now May 29, 2012 at 2:12 AM

      I am looking for a car rental agency in Le Havre where I can rent a car on a Sunday, and return it to Paris the following Thursday. I do not have the option to change either the day or the week or the necessity of returning the car to Paris, so please don't suggest making changes.

      So far, I can't find any agency open on a Sunday. We arrive early Sunday morning from a cruise and have obligations that require us to drive elsewhere that morning.

      All practical solutions are welcome.

We plan to stay the night somewhere and then take a train to Paris at the end of the second day. Would we be better off to stay in Caen or Bayeux and how would we get there from Le Havre. Thanks, Carol

    • minibus with driver at Le Havre?

      by debbieO Online Now Jun 12, 2010 at 9:07 AM

      I am looking for a minibus with driver for group of 10 people to tour Normandy coastline for approx 9-10 hours. We will arrive Le Havre in September by cruise ship. Since there is an 85 years old lady in the group, I think a minibus with driver would be the most practical way to go. Anybody know companies offer such service in the area?

      Is it possible to safely leave several fairly large pieces of luggage at the station for a few hours while waiting for a train to Paris? Is there a check room? Are there large lockers that might be used? Can a passenger check luggage and have it loaded or available for a train leaving within up to 2-3 hours or less?

    • LeHavre to Omaha Beach

      by heimer Online Now May 22, 2009 at 4:56 PM

      We will be arriving in LeHavre on a cruise ship and I have arranged a rental car when we get there. Information about where to pick up the car relative to where we arrive is very sparse, along with what to expect in the way of tolls and traffic between the two locations. We have about 8 hours to complete our roundtrip journey with our main interest being Omaha Beach and the American cemetary. We are senior citizens. Are we making a mistake?

      Thank you

      Our trip to France is coming up fast and we are trying to keep from purchasing too many extra memory cards for our digital cameras. Does anyone know in the Normandie area if there are digital photo kiosks available for public use? We would like to every day or so go in an download our photos and have them put onto CD's for easy transport home.
