    • 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!
      Emma

    • 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.

    • visiting Villers Bretanneux from Paris

      Paris Jan 4, 2017 at 10:22 PM

      I'm keen to visit Villers Bretanneux while in Paris. I can catch a train to Amiens but need to be able to get to VB for a visit,then go to the Australian war memorial about a mile away. Any suggestions. I don't want to pay the E300 for a full tour of the Somme region. Driving isn't an option

      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!

      Bonjour
      Mon ami et moi prévoyons d'aller à Paris dans quelques semaines. Mais parce qu'il est froid, nous voulons prendre le métro. Mais est-il sûr après tous les événements de cette année?
      Je souhaite une réponse rapide.
      Je vous remercie à l'avance!

      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.

      Paris - scenic spots like the Alps this Feb

      Paris Jan 4, 2017 at 4:58 PM

      I will be in Paris this early Feb and would like to go to a scenic spot similar to the Alps. Perhaps Jungfrau Switzerland or somewhere nearer Paris or Geneva? I only have 2 days though. Our free time will be Friday the whole day until Sunday morning. We need to leave by Sunday morning (either from Paris or Geneva). Any suggestions?

      Daily excursions to castles and river tours

      by Pawtuxet Online Now Jan 7, 2016 at 7:27 AM

      My family is planning to visit several small villages in the Loire Valley next year. Thinking of staying between Angers and Saumur. Does anyone have experience with one day castle and/or river tours leaving from Angers or Saumur? Many thanks in advance. Janet in R.I., USA.... "Pawtuxet"

    • Loire Tour Companies

      by lvregan Online Now Mar 25, 2015 at 4:29 PM

      We're looking into doing a tour of the Loire Chateaux's and are trying to find a reputable company to guide us. We're primarily looking into a company called Quart de Tours with a website of http://www.chateaux-tours.com/. Wondering if anyone could shed some light on this company? Thank you in advance. Vince

    • Seeing the chateaux

      by cathy9510usa Online Now Feb 10, 2015 at 1:41 AM

      We'll be in the Loire region with basically only a full day to see what we can (staying in Blois, so we'll definitely see that one).

      However, I don't think we'll want to see the interiors as much as the outsides and surroundings (gardens, etc.). My idea was to go from Blois to Amboise, Chenonceau (possibly visit interior), maybe Chaumont, and Chambord.

      I know Amboise is very visible from various viewpoints, but are many other chateaux visible from their surroundings and can be photographed without paying to enter?

      Thanks very much for any help you can give.

      Best way to see the Loire

      by roamer61 Online Now Nov 2, 2013 at 6:07 AM

      I am thinking about, as a possible option, the Loire valley for 2015. If I was to do this, how is the best way to do it?
      Should I take a tour or can it somehow be done more independently? I should point out, I do not drive.

    • Chateau Card

      by grumpyoldlady Online Now Apr 15, 2013 at 3:30 PM

      Crazy question - is there a "chateau card" which we can buy which will allow us access in to a number of the chateaux rather than pay for individual entrances - does anyone know of one. We do similar things in the UK

      Many thanx
