Hi all,

A simple question I hope. I'm planning to do some hiking in September in the Alps above Chamonix. Is there a website in English where you can book refuges/huts in the mountains? I read this isn't the busiest period, but it is advisable to book ahead to ensure a bed.

Thanks in advance.

Hello All,

My husband and I are traveling to Europe---Dec 21st-Jan 3rd. We are planning to go to the following cities (arriving in) London, Amsterdam, Paris, and Cognac. My husband is really set on going to Cognac to take a tour of some of the distilleries. My question is will we be able to find a tour on or around January 2nd?

Thanks,
Toya

Hoping to spend 3 to 4 weeks in September/October 2016. Would like to rent an apartment and stay in one place, taking day trips by bus or train. I speak French well enough to get along. Interested in walks, sketching, cafes, bicycling, museums, relaxing -- low-key stuff. Prefer a really off the tourist path, "real" town. The sort of place where I can be in a neighborhood and get to know a few of the locals in a casual way. I visited and enjoyed Laon a few years ago, but it's just a bit too…

Hi,

My husband and I are travelling to France in mid-october and we will be in Provence for 4 days, in the last week of October. We are on a very tight budget. So we cannot afford renting cars or minivan tours. This is what we have planned so far.

Day 1- Reach avignon in the evening.
Day2- Day trip to l'isle sur la sorgue.
Day 3- St.Remy
Day 4- Not sure
Day 5- Aix en Provence.

We like pretty villages and small towns. So, we have a few questions:
1) On day 2, are there any places on the way to or…

We are thinking of a holiday in the Dordogne in September it seems everything is within 300Km of of Bordeaux so car hire at Bordeaux looks a good option and maybe a day or two walking tour we have about 8 days in total then train from Bordeaux back to Paris. There are only two of us and we haven't booked anything yet so any suggestions from experienced travellers in this region would be most welcomed

Hi,
My partner and I are looking for a last-minute break in the next couple of weeks before he starts a new job. We've found reasonable flights to La Rochelle (we don't have a huge budget so our options are limited!) and are wondering if anyone knows of any campsites around there or on Ile de Re where you can hire a tent? We love camping and have all the gear here in UK but it's not practical to take it on the plane. We'd also consider motorhome or chalet or any other reasonably priced…

It's been quite hot in France and fires are a very unfortunate result of carelessness....

My sister, Elle, and I are going backpacking through Europe in August. We're spending five days in Paris and three in Marseille. Does anyone have suggestions for cool things we can do that aren't super tourist-y?

We like live music (house, electronic, rock, indie, etc), dancing, architecture, nature, historical sites, drinking, food, and books, among other things. We're also really interested in meeting people in the countries that we visit.

Also, if anyone is traveling in August and wants to…
