    • Baggage storage in Paris

      Paris Dec 3, 2016 at 10:04 PM

      Hi guys,
      I am heading to Paris in January. On my last day I do not need to be at the airport until about 5 o'clock to catch my plane to Sydney. I obviously want to make the most of this as a sight-seeing day(possibly Disnayland) but will have my luggage with me. Does anybody know of any storage lockers or something I would be able to take my big bag to? Does the airport have lockers for rent? Or does Disneyland have big storage cubes? Or would some hotels offer baggage holding even when you have checked out?
      Thanks

    • How tourist-y is Antibes in January or February?

      Antibes Nov 7, 2016 at 12:32 AM

      How tourist-y is Antibes in January or February?

      I need a get-away soon, but I don't want to be around large numbers of tourists milling around, taking photos, partying. Unlike many tourists these days, I'm not "looking for the action" (excitement) at all.

      I do speak French fluently and have been a francophile most of my life.

      Is Antibes in the winter subdued enough, quiet enough for me to spend two weeks just de-compressing, wandering around, reading (French novels) and listening to classical music in my apartment? Or should I look elsewhere on the Cote d'Azur, somewhere smaller like Vence or Beaulieu, etc.??

    • Solo woman traveling in Paris on New Years Eve

      Paris Nov 28, 2016 at 10:57 AM

      I am a 54 year old woman who will be arriving in Paris Orly airport on Thursday, December 29 at 5 pm,
      and flying out of DeGalle airport on Sunday, January 1 at 11 am.

      My questions...

      1. What area in Paris should I stay in?
      Since I really only have two days I would like a great location to walk to things in the area and as a base for sightseeing. I would be so grateful for decent, hotel and restaurant suggestions in that area?

      2. What is the best/easiest way to get from Orly to "that area" at that time of day?

      3. Are there any good one day tours?
      I would probably book that for Friday or Saturday, and spend the other day on my own exploring the area around my hotel.

      4. What is there to do on New Years Eve? I don't drink but would love to know what would be safe for me to do alone that night.

      Thank you very much!

      Can anyone suggest a day-trip from Paris?

      Paris Nov 11, 2016 at 7:32 AM

      I will be visiting Paris in a few weeks. I have been to Paris numerous times and know it very well. Equally, I have taken many day-trips from Paris and have been to all the obvious places (and even beyond). Can anyone suggest a new place I might visit? I am looking for a place within a two hour radius by train.

      I like quaint places, and/or places that has a old worldly feel to them. I enjoy visiting places with a riverside setting as well e.g. Moret-sur-Loing. 

      Here is a short list of day-trips I have taken:

      Amiens, Auxerre, Beauvais, Bourges, Châlons-en-Champagne, Chantilly, Chartres, Compiègne, Dijon, Fontainebleau, Giverny, Moret-sur-Loing, Orléans, Provins, Reims, Rouen, Senlis, Sens, Tours, Troyes, Versailles.  

      I have not listed other places I have visisted that are further a way e.g. Caen, Lyon, Metz, Nancy, Nantes, Rennes etc.

      At the moment I am thinking of visiting Meaux (because there is a cathedral in Meaux), but I would like to have a few other places on my list. I thought of trying to get to Avallon and/or Loches, but it appears there aren't any direct (or very few direct) trains to Avallon or Loches.

      Many thanks

      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
