Ready to go? Do you ask yourself ... where shall I stay? Should I send money to proprietors? Is the internet safe for making reservations? Who can I trust? Do some of these questions pass through your mind just before you get in your car and drive straight to the travel agent?

First of all. Travel agents are great...but if you are adventurous, flexible, have time to learn about travel and want to make your own reservation, get on the internet ... like now!!! Poke around. Talk to a friend. Get advice. Pick up the phone. You really can do it.

Or ask us to help you. We are here to help reassure you. Each apartment or house that we recommend, we have either stayed there, a friend has stayed there or we have a good relationship with the owner or property manager. We have a growing collection of places in Provence and in Paris. Our list will grow. Stop by again or send me an email If there is a place you are interested in renting, let us know. We will check with our French counterparts. We are ready to help. We enjoy connecting with our French friends and would love to help you by sharing what we know. Won't cost you for our help. It's FREE. We simply enjoy helping.

Check out Dick's "Travel Made simple." There is a lot of excellent information in this section about travel. If you have other questions, ou could also send him an email at Richard@ChezProvence.com.

Palais du Pape
Palais du Papes in Avignon
Avignon. Can you just imagine a short ride to this kind of history. Walk the walk in the Palais du Pape in Avignon. The culture, the people, the history, the soil, the buildings. It surrounds you ... and the weather is impeccable. with 333 days of sunshine each year. Just imagine! And if it is cloudy, there's always a three hour lunch break.

Saint Roman de Malegarde and Faucon are only 30 minute north west of the Luberon where Peter Mayle lives (formerly in Menerbes but now south of the planes but still in the Luberon). We tried to find his home when he wrote his books but couldn't. Maybe next time. And ... these quiet little village are only 15 minutes to the Roman Villages of Vaison La Romaine and the olive oil capital of Nyons. Need more information, send me an email about these "sweet spots". I'll put you in touch with the owners.

Let's not forget one of my most favorite and romantic cities in the world --Paris. Arrive here, stay here or move on to Provence. Choices...choices...choices. If Paris is your destination, let me direct you to a couple very interesting and comfortable apartments. These owners have a much to offer you (coming soon).

That's all for now.

A Bientot,


Carol
