  • Remarkable week in the south of France

    "We are now flying from Paris to Atlanta after spending a week in the south of France. Though I had heard of Provence all of my life of travel, and had been to Paris with my family before, we wanted to do something different for our thirtieth wedding anniversary so we packed our bags, our grown children and their spouses, and spent an absolutely delightful week at Vivre au Sud, in Salernes, France. We did not know what to expect but the photos do not do it justice. The home is spacious, well furnished, beautiful and the beds are as good as you will find in any fine hotel. Because our anniversary was in November, the swimming pool wasn't used but it was clean and was part of the ambiance of the home, along with a couple of walled acres of grass, bushes and olive trees. The floors inside the home are heated and despite temperatures in the fifties, it was toasty warm. In warmer weather the pool would be fantastic along with the huge deck and outdoor grill. If there is a negative, it is that there is just so much to do in the Var Department of Provence that one week is simply not enough. We tasted wine at wineries that have been producing since 1100 AD; visited cities occupied by the Romans, BC; sat at a market where Winston Churchill, Louis XIV and Napoleon Bonaparte shared our same view; walked on the red carpet of movie stars in Cannes; toured a church built in 1624 that exhibits the mummified body of Saint Roseline; explored The Grand Canyon of France; drank cafe au lait outdoors under thousand year old trees; and, after taking a high speed train from Les Arcs to Monte Carlo, gambled in the Grand Casino then had champagne in the Hotel de Paris in the American Bar where photos lined the walls of stars eating, drinking and making merry in that same room. Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Clark Gable, Marlene Dietrich, you name it, they have been there. We boarded the 190 mile per hour train and returned to Vivre au Sud worn out but extremely happy. There are fantastic restaurants in Salernes and the wine is second to none. On our last night there, we turned on the TV for the first time and, appropriately, watched French Kiss, much of which was filmed in the vineyards of Provence and the streets of Cannes. This morning we were sad to leave but know that we will return someday. We have traveled the world around and never had a better time than we did at Vivre au Sud and it's environs."

  • Great location, Great apartment!

    "We loved our week in Marais and this apartment was perfect for the three of us. The apartment was spotless and provided a quiet respite to our hectic tourist activities. Very nice block, great restaurants and shops within steps of the apartment and a lovely park nearby. We were able to walk or Metro everywhere and our apartment agent met us on time and was lovely. We would return in a minute."
