Hotels in Provence

Is there a Web site like www.venere.it, but for France, rather than Italy? In other words, I am looking for hotel information for Southern France, and I would like to find a site like venere.it. Thanks in advance.

Why be so preplanned? Get there and
just drive, there are lots of
extremely good hotels with great
charm in small towns outside the
main tourist sites and unless you
travel in August, they invariably
have rooms. No, we won't share our
secret places.!!!!! Use the local
library,the books have web sites.

I am a single woman. I will not be driving. I prefer not to show up in a town without some sort of reservation, especially if I want to make one place my home base. Now, again, if anyone has any useful information and can answer directly to my original question, I would appreciate it.

K. - Try some of these sites. My wife and I used some/all of these for a trip to SE France last May. I kinda like the unstructured vacation, too, but having a room definitely helped save some time when we arrived in a town. Let me know if you have questions.

Oh yes, we found that faxing a "form letter" request for a room (see Rick Steves' site) worked great. Especially if their English is as bad as our French. Just remember the time difference when looking for the reply.

You might also try searches on the region(s) or cities you plan to visit or just "French hotels." LOTS of web sites related to tourism in France. Good luck.

Hi, K,
First, I'd suggest you go back to Venere and check out the links - several leads there including "I love Europe" (www.iloveeurope.com) which I think is a new web site and very impressive.

We've had very good luck with the independent chateaux group at http://www.chateauxethotels.com (down at the moment but really a good source,) or (a book and a great one) our hosts' (Fodor's Rivages) Small Hotels guide to France - the best, IMO.

Thanks, Steve and John. This is the kind of information I was looking for, especially the tip to go back to venere.it. What I like about venere.it is the ability to see what is available. Thanks again.

Once you find a hotel that sound good, go to Bonjour Paris (www.bparis.com). They have discussions groups about sighseeing and hotels with many regular posters who seem very knowledgeable about the area. I sure someone can give you some feedback or other suggestions. Look for the thread: More about Provence.

K,

Spent week in Provence in June of 99. Stayed in San Remy at Hotel Rousson. Old 16th C. chateau complete with 'Allee of trees at entrance, reflecting pools, swans everything you imagine French countryside to be. Located about two miles from San Remy. A place to relax and unwind. Meals there are very good. Service great. rooms large , bathrooms small. (Triples around 90 to 120 US). Car is essential to see sites . Ruins of Nostradamus' last abode on site. Very safe for someone traveling alone.

K-
If you e-mail me directly, I can hyperlink to you about 2 dozen sites for hotel reservations in France. None of them have the fax capability like venere.it but can do an e-mail response.

I do not know how to do hyperlinks in this forum and it would take too long to re-type all the web sites I've bookmarked.
