On today’s show we go to Marseille and Provence with a French Expat, Isabelle Hall, who has been living in Texas for a long time, but grew up in Provence and knows it like the back of her hand! If you like this episode, you will also probably like episode 66 on Arles, episode 65 on the Pont du Gard, and episode 33 on Aix-en-Provence. At the end of the show [1’07”] I also answer a question from a listener about whether to book your SNCF train tickets in advance or not.

Places Mentioned in this Episode: Marseille, Corniche, Calanques, Sausset-les-Pins, Carry-le-Rouet, Venise Provençale, Martigues, Château d’If, Iles du Frioul, Cassis, Vieux Port,  Canebière, Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde, Baux-de-Provence, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Aix-en-Provence.

French Alps, Episode 59


French Alps, Episode 59
Cynthia Caughey
This week we head to the French Alps with tour designer Cynthia Caughey. She lives in the Alps part-time with her French husband and has come to know it very well. Her company offers two tours: one is the Alps exclusively, and the other is French Alps and Provence. On the show we discuss both and I must say they sound like fun and action-packed tours, yet accessible to all. One of the attractions they take their visitors to is the Carrières de Lumières at Les-Baux-de-Provence, which I highly recommend (lots of photos on the website).
