Nice little town on the banks of the river Loire. Prosperity must have been gained from trade on the water. The town kept its identity and is just fine for a day of walking, shopping, wining and dining. The contrast with nearby Paris couldn't be...More

this was a genuine surprise and the old town of Orleans was reminiscent of old Tudor looking towns of England such as Canterbury and York. We very much enjoyed the trip on the 'petit train' where information in English was given about the town. Well...More

One thing I noted about Orleans is how quiet and clean it was. Easy to walk around and enjoy the old parts of the city. Plenty of pubs everywhere so it must have a student population. It also has a few great Michellan star restaurants...More

The old city of Orleans contains many fine buildings and churches and has an ambient atmosphere. One of the narrow streets has fantastic graffiti representing the voice of the future. Unfortunately, most of the restaurants and bars are tasteless, a mismatch with the beautiful surroundings.

The central of Orléans with narrow stoned streets is not very large but really beautiful. The are no cars and pedestrians can choose from several restaurants and small shops. Best part of city by far.

Sorry for the late reply, have been travelling a lot lately. Shops usually close around 18:00 in the downtown core. Some grocery / convenience stores are open until 19:00 or 20:00

Luggage storage & transport to Chemin des Bois (6 Replies)
The cycle tour I will take starts in Avignon, but unfortunately the hotel they use is La Ferme, about 6 km north of the city. I will arrive Avignon on a Saturday in June about noon, and am planning on leaving my luggage in the Centre-Ville train station while I do a walking tour of the city before proceeding to the hotel. I wonder if this service is available on Saturday, and if yes, does it close at a certain time. My apologies if this question seem silly, i.e. because I do not know if this...More

The luggage lockers are available whenever the station is open which would certainly include Saturday afternoon. Your tour organizers should be able to advise you on transportation to the hotel or you might find the information on the hotel web site. if it is only 6 km a taxi should not be outrageously expensive. Absent any other suggestions I would just take one from the rank in front of the station.
Cab from Avignon TGV to Isle sur l'Sorgue? (6 Replies)
There will be three of us travelling by train Oct 13th from Cagnes sur Mer to Antibes (transferring to another train) on to Antibe to then have to shuttle to Centre- Ville station to catch a train onto Isle sur la Sorgue. I am thinking that sounds like a slice of hell...does anyone know the approximate cost or even availability of taking a cab from Avignon TGV to Isle sur la'Sorgue? My undying appreciation in advance, CT

It is about 26 km (16 miles) from Avignon TGV station to L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue. A taxi would want to be paid for the return journey, so I would think a cost of at least €55. Why not rent a car at Cagnes and drive to L'Isle? This would take about 3 hours along good quality motorway. You would need a car while you are staying in L'Isle anyway if you want to see the surrounding villages and countryside.
