Spring 2019 ...

Can you believe…. in magic…


If you don’t you need to be in France during the holiday season. The markets, the lights, the music, ah….and can anything surpass the 13 deserts and a “bouche de Noel”?   

And… then the fireworks lighting the skies all over France to launch 2019.  

If you couldn’t get to France in time for the holidays…and January Truffle season. You must quickly… Think Springtime travel! 

The spring Pontias breeze pushing its way to deliver summer flowers. Wisteria dripping, poppies popping, roses exploding, lavendar beginning to stand tall… and of course grape vines budding.

With the Euro being so appealing, many folks are making their travel plans locking in early affordable flights and apartments, vilas and gites before the best are taken.

For example, our apartment (although still available for January, February and the first two weeks in March is booked through the end of July.  The same holds true for many of our other clients Paris and Provence apartments. There are a few places still available but not many.

If you are considering a trip for the holidays, winter, spring or even next summer, now is the time to pin down those dates. Apartments are not all filled but believe me, I'm booking now for summer…. and next fall.

If you like automatic cars vs. a standard, those go quickly also. Lock in a price while it's low before the end of the year and reap the benefits if prices drop. Remember with AutoEurope--> Auto Europe all rates are guaranteed lowest price.

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?
