For brevity, I did not indicate which side we'd be staying on but our timeshare company has none of the French side choices. .
We will rent a car and we love Orient Beach as well as Cupecoy and Dawn Beach.
We are 40-56 years old and enjoy fine dining more than the night life. We'll dine elegantly but also relish the local hang outs, like the Lady C (Floating Bar near the drawbridge).
Can anybody give us a few resorts that might fit the bill? Even if we cannot get into that resort, at least we'd be in the neighborhood to enjoy the local restaurants and bars.
