Spring 2014 ...

Spring is in the air...


... roses are beginning to bloom, cherry blossoms abound....are you ready?

If you are considering April or summer in Paris.... or’s time you begin to reserve. Traveling around can be fun but exhausting. Think about living the good life like the french do every day. Rent an apartment. Go to markets. Why be cramped in a small 10x10’ room when you can enjoy the comforts of an apartment for equal or less than a “postage” stamp sized room.

And... so then 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... Affordable rentals go FAST. For really maximum choices, think about next fall now. Don’t delay.

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

Bien Amicalement,
