      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.

    • 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.

The reason I am asking is that coming from Gard Nord to St Lazare, you have to walk from Blvd Haussmann (where the RER leaves you) to St Lazare Station.

      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!

      How to: TGV to TER at Poitiers Gare

      Poitiers Mar 28, 2016 at 10:26 AM

      Hello folks,

      I will have a train change at Gare Poitiers, TGV to TER. TER is 2nd class and my ticket shows neither a VOITURE# nor a PLACE# but only says "SANS RESERVATION". I will have only 12 minutes to find my PLACE on TER. I will not carry much luggage but have no clue how to proceed to my TER and which VOITURE and which PLACE!

      Last year I had the opposite change from TER to TGV and was easy to find my PLACE from GARE monitors & COMPOSITION DES TRAINS monitor.

      But this one I never experienced. I hope someone here can give me some helpful guidance.

      Many thanks in advance.heart
