Bonjour Paris Enthusiasts,

Does it get any better than this.... the spring Pontias breeze pushing its way to deliver summer flowers. Wisteria dripping, poppies popping, roses exploding, lavendar shooting up soon to deliver the scent of relaxing lavendar.

Americans are traveling again. With the euro at its lowest in 10 years, our apartment is filled through November and so are many of our 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 June and August of 2016.

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 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?
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. 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.
