Southwest of France with Children Trip Report, Episode 114

Southwest of France with Children


Southwest of France Jennifer Ditchburn



Jennifer Ditchburn visited the southwest of France with her husband and children in June 2016 and she comes on the show today to share some of the highlights of their experience. Jennifer is the Editor in Chief of a magazine called Policy Options in Canada, she speaks beautiful French and has visited France on several occasions. But, this is her first time in France with her children, so they selected child-friendly activities. Because we recorded this episode the day the results of the Brexit were announced and because Jennifer is a political junkie, we discuss this news event at the beginning of the show as well.

Hotels Recommended in this Episode

People often ask me to recommend a hotel in Toulouse, and it’s hard for me to answer because in Toulouse I sleep in my own bed! I recommended the  Novotel Compans Caffarelli to Jennifer and her family because it’s close to everything at a reasonable price and has a good reputation. Jennifer and family liked it very much. I would also recommend you look at the Mercure Compans Caffarelli because that’s where Airbus sends a lot of business visitors and they all seem happy with it.

Tips for Visiting Montpellier, France

Montpellier

Montpellier is a city of 500,000 people and growing all the time. By comparison, Toulouse has twice as many people but feels like a smaller city. Montpellier probably gives this impression because it has bigger buildings, a more open city center, and being on the Mediterranean, which is a popular place to live, it is surrounded by other fairly large cities.
