Fall 2013 ...

Fall is in the air ...


...the vendange (grape harvest) was late, but is now here. Weather continues to be gorgeous. But then with 333 days of sunshine, mother nature certainly has trouble making it rain on our parade.

And so... are ready to go to France? 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?

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 work with apartment owners. Each apartment or house that we recommend in Provence or Paris, we have either stayed there, a friend has stayed there. Our list will grow. Stop by again or send me an email If there is a place you are interested in renting. We are ready to help. Owners pay us a commission. Our help connecting you is FREE to you. And... we simply enjoy helping folks learn about France.

Plan ahead... now is the time to think about enjoying the fall harvest, Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years Eve in Paris or Provence. Then, of course, there is the light show early December in Lyon. Affordable rentals go FAST. Don’t delay.

Check out Dick's "Travel Made simple." And if you have questions, send me an email.
