Back to France (Alsace and Provence).
I have family in Alsace and we were only there for 2 days.
I also lived just south of Paris when I was a kid - my dad was in the service.
Tell us about one of your favorite places to stay on an Untour. Do you have a favorite host? Apartment? Village?
We have only two to speak of and they were both excellent.
The guidebooks were such a great source for getting into the local flavor of the land.
Do you have any special interests or hobbies that you follow when you travel?
I love to take pictures. Love small towns.

Trying to explain to the property caretaker that we needed a wake up call very early in the morning to return to the states. It was a game of charades trying to imitate an alarm clock sound. At 5 am we heard the knock at our door. We looked out the door and she was hobbling away in her nightgown and waving goodbye as she ran across the field back to her home.
Which Untours have you already done?
Italy and we also took a Home At First trip in Ireland
What advice would you give others considering an Untour?
Don't consider it --- do it. We have such wonderful memories and everyplace was just the right place. If you expect it to be like it is at home, you will be dissapointed --- expect to be a part of a new community of wonderful adventures and kind people.
Carole and Matt:
Thanks for your warm praise of what we are trying to do with Untours Cafe--and with our actual Untours If your friends need help with their trip to Italy, I'll be glad to give my personal recommendations. Better yet I'll personally connect them to one of our staff who know the properties better than I.
Your Eiffel Tower Twinkle Show is delightful! We love Alsace also and were just there in May of '06. I have two blogs on Alsace on my page; hope you'll check them out sometime and let me know what you think...
