My wife and I will be arriving in Paris 5/24/02. We are staying near the Marche au Puse (sp?-the flea market just outside of the 18th). We have 3 weeks to enjoy, one of which will be spent in Paris. We are going to Deauville for a few days. We would like to take a trip for maybe 5-7 days to one location (Provence, Lyon, etc...) We have a friend in Grenoble that we may or may not see. We can only travel by train (no car) and we have a limited buget. We would like to stay in places costing no more than 75 euros/night or maybe 400 euros/week. Please send any and all suggestions you may have including web sights. I have attempted to browse gites-de-france but the site does not remain in English beyond the first few page links. Any suggestions in the area of Paris either near our location or outside would also be welcomed. I will be making dinner resv at L'Astrance and La Regalade (sp?)for sure. Are there any other restaurants along these lines we should visit? Please be specific in any of your responses and feel free to e-mail me. My wife and I are Rhone wine lovers (both nord et sud) and hope to find bistros with emphasis on these types of wines (Wili's, Juvinile). Thanks in advance for making this a memorable trip for us. I promise to post notes upon my return. For those concerned, I have cut and pasted all the info I could find on this board.
