We will be travelling to Switzerland in late August (though we fly in and out of Milan). We have thirteen days excluding the travel days. I am very tempted to include a little bit of France in the trip. I have read about Annecy and will definitely try to stay 1 or 2 nights there. I was wondering if we could add more.

3 years ago we visited the Luberon in Provence and fell in the love with the villages, the nature, the markets, the food everything. My favourite village was probably Loumarin. I…

Hi! After some time in Collioure and a week on retreat near Carcassonne, I've given myself 5 nights to make my way to Geneva for my return flight. I had thought to perhaps visit Annecy for a day before arriving in Geneva. But honestly, I'm very open to suggestions for where I might visit.

I'd love to explore some towns by foot, eat…

Hi, I was wondering what the best way is to see the troglodyte valley around Saumur. Is there any public transportation there or a tour you can take from Saumur? Thanks everyone,

Hi all, I'm seeking advice here since I don't know how to get in touch with the Consulate (I did email them but not sure of their response time). We are trying to access the website to schedule an appointment for my husband to get a short term visa for an upcoming trip to France. Every time we try to get to the site, and using several different browsers, we get an error message. The link is at the bottom of this page: http://www.consulfrance-washington.org/spip.php?article440

The only thing I…

Hi, we are a family of four with a four year old and a two year old. We went to Ile de re last year and loved it, especially the biking facility, loved the beauty of the island and the ease of cycling around. We are looking for a similar french area.. but aiming for more south as we are planning on going late june so want to get the better weather, ile de re is probably just a little bit risky that early on in the season. we have no idea where to start though? does anyone have any…

Hi,

I am planning a trip to Provence and Cote D'Azur because I love Matisse and Dufy and have wanted to visit this area forever.I saw a tour that may be okay from Road Scholar but would like to know of others.I am hoping to travel in September.I have never used an escorted tour before and would love to hear recommendations.I am also curious whether to do the land tour only and book my own travel arrangements.Like trains more than planes.

thanks
