    • 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.??

    • Menton or Villefranche-sur-mer ?

      Menton Nov 5, 2016 at 11:46 PM

      How would you compare Menton with Villefranche-sur-mer as a base to explore the Cote d'Azur for a first-time traveler (to the French Riviera) for two-weeks? I am looking for a quiet village or small town atmosphere, away from hordes of tourists, and crossed off Antibes, etc. for that reason. Somehow I narrowed down to my list to Menton and Villefranche-sur-mer. I know the latter is much smaller and seems to cater to a more upper-tier clientele, while the former has attracted many French retirees.

      I do speak French and have a degree in art history, with interest in French history and literature. I will not have a car.

    • 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

    • Is Calais a safe place to visit

      Calais Feb 21, 2016 at 9:57 AM

      I am planning to visit Calais for a day trip in the next few weeks. I plan to travel by car through the eurotunnel and would simply like to spend 4 hours during the daytime and visit and explore Calais, in particular the old town the Place D'Armes, Lighthouse, Musee Beaux Arts, the Town Hall & Belfry. Ending with a visit to Cite Europe.

      Keeping in mind the immigration situation in the news, is Calais indeed a safe place for a tourist for a day trip?

      Train to Paris

      Calais Jun 20, 2015 at 11:03 PM

      I will be traveling from Dover, England on the Ferry and then catching a train to Paris. I believe Paris de Nord is the closest station to my hotel. I am a little confused about getting the train once we get off the ferry in Calais. Can anyone tell me if the train station is within walking distance from the ferry port? If not...is there buses or taxi's at the port? I would like to take the fast train, I believe that is the Eurostar? Thank you for any help.

      Dogs on the beach

      Boulogne-sur-Mer Jun 4, 2015 at 2:05 AM

      I'm hoping someone knows if dogs are allowed on beaches in or near Boulogne during June.
      I've tried emailing their tourist information office but had no response from them.
      We are renting a cottage 40 miles inland from the coast and hope to spend a full day visiting Boulogne.
      Next week when we are in France is going to be a heat wave (I guarantee it,- lol) so we will be unable to leave our pooch in the car, hence my question

      Help with Trip to Normandy/Brittany France

      We're thinking of a week's stay in Normandy and/or Brittany. Could someone advise me about the easiest way to get there from London via Eurostar (to Calais?). Can we rent a car there or is there another place that would be better? Any hotel suggestions would also be appreciated. I think the trip would be in early June, hopefully not a busy, busy tourist time. Thanks for any advice.
