I am moving on in my search on the ultimate France vacation for Mum and I...
As Mum and I, also a woman, want a lot of things out of a place to stay. Ease in the evenings...walk to meals? Intersting stores to browse after a day of driving around Provence, but this location does not need to be the big place we are intending to see as we are renting a car. We would be ok spending $150 - $300 a night...erks? But we would like a reasonable selection...not to feel isolated and we need two beds in the room. A nice balcony to sit and enjoy a glass of wine while watching the world go by would also be a dreamy delight - but that is what cafe's are for...so again more of an emphasis on proximity to town cafe's and restaurants.
We do look forward to market...but that can be a part of our day journeys....history and ruins...but again - rental car. So help please with our home base?
