OK, the Hotel Brighton in Paris, with balcony room is booked and so is the flat from VRBO in ST. Remy for 4 nights! So now we need 4 to 5 nights in the Luberon/Mt. Ventoux area. Oh my gosh Crillon-le-Brave is beautiful, have you stayed there? Of course it should be for the price. How far to other dining option? I would love to find a place that has some kitchentte facilites for occasional dinners or breakfasts in. Any other ideas in this area, since we will be in town in St. Remy we are looking for a bit more secluded but able to day trip & bring back some provisions for maybe quiet evenings, not $200.00+ dinners every night!I can't believe how fast these plans are coming together but I can also see how accommodations book up fast. Thank you so much!!

Perry, I've stayed at Crillon several times since it first opened. The views are incredible. We book the least expensive room. Try the provebceweb.com and provencebeyond.com to look fpr places with cooking facilities.

no, sorry I meant we booked the Brighton & St. Remy! Friends told me to book early for an upper floor view so we did. Does anyone know if the junior suites have views too or is it just the rooms described as "Tuileries"? I didn't get a clear answer from the hotel. And we may go for the Crillon...still checking. Does the villiage it is in have good dining options or did you eat at the hotel for your stay? Thank you cigalechanta for the websites to check out!

The Crillon has a main dining room and terrace for a fantastic view. The bistro is on a lower terrace and on a lower one, the swimming pool. You can drive easily to nearby towns. Bedoin is down below to the east, Beaumes-de=Venese, is west, Vaison-laRomaine is North and Carpentras is South. Alleasy drives.

Use Rick's advice - I stayed for a week in Paris at Grand Hotel Leveque on Rue Cler within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower and crossing the Seine to the Champs Elysees was a snap. The hotel staff speaks English and the location is great - pedestrian walk with lots of restaurants and French activity -- church at the end of the street, girl's school - restaurant staff shopping for supplies on Rue Cler -- great experience all in all.

Try reading the reviews on Tripadvisor for B&Bs in The Luberon. You would then be centrally based.

This is how it is shaping up: Fly into Zurich, spend 2 nights (no hotel yet), rent car & spend 3 days making way to Provence,France (one night Geneva? one night Lyon?) spend 4 nights at http://www.crillonlebrave.com/ (Le Tour room!!) & date trip Cotes' de Rhone area & Luberon? The 4 nights in St. Remy, in town at http://www.vrbo.com/79367 & explore area & possibly Marseille for a day. Drop off rental car in Avignon, take high speed train to Paris, 6 nights at the Hotel Brighton, Effiel tower view. What do you think?
