Profile Information

What is your favorite place in Europe so far?
Where would you most like to go next?
Went to France, want to go back and also to Ireland, Denmark, Scotland, Wales, Dubrovnik and on and on...
Tell us about one of your favorite places to stay on an Untour. Do you have a favorite host? Apartment? Village?
So far the Monpazier house is our only experience--and it was wonderful. This fulfilled my life-long dream of living in a Medieval setting. My only regret is that I couldn't stay longer.
Do you have any special interests or hobbies that you follow when you travel?
Just the usual--museums, historic sites, food, music, etc.
When you upload photos to Untours Cafe, you are also giving Untours permission to use the photos in their promotional material (with credit to you)
Which Untours have you already done?
Dordogne not actually an Untours, but all the support we needed.
What advice would you give others considering an Untour?
Do it! I can't imagine being sorry. And, if you want hints and tips on Monpazier--I've got 'em.
What is your favorite Untour? (so far)

Home again, home again, jiggety jog

The whole trip was amazing. Although we're glad to be back at home-sweet-home, I could easily have spent another week in the beautiful and fascinating Dordogne area. Although, if we had, we would have run straight into the Volcanic ash problem...

I'm still sorting through the hundreds of photos we took and will be posting them, and more details of our trip, over the next few weeks. I have put up one album about a very special little spot we found through the… Continue

Wherever you go, there you are...

Yes, we want to get away from it all, have a change of scene, break up the old routine...

So, we're leaving our rural village (pop. 500), largely un-served by public transportation, where the main livelihoods are farming, artisan foods and tourism.

BUT, we'll be doing it in French!

And we're pretty sure that… Continue

Happy Birthday, Dear Cyrano...

I just happened to notice that today is the birthday of Rostand's character, apparently based on an historical person, who came from Bergerac. As Bergerac in the Dordogne...where we're going...soon. Coincidence?-- or --cue theme from the X-files!

Okay, seriously, we have been studying like crazy and find that the areas of interest chronographically are;

Pre-history- the geology, the caves, the troglodyte dwellings

Romans-ruins, bridges, roads, hoping for a relatively close… Continue

Decisions, decisions

When one person travels, it's an adventure; when two people go, it's a negotiation!

It has become glaringly obvious over the past month that most of my previous traveling was done solo and that having only oneself to please certainly simplifies things.

The choice of area, the Dordogne, was made by my husband, whose brother made the trip with a Yale group 3 years ago. I was pretty sure I could enjoy anyplace where it would not be snowing and below 32 degrees in April, but the idea of… Continue

We missed the Orangerie the last time we were in Paris. So that is on our list for this year's visit. We did visit the Cluny. But some of the rooms were closed ((heads from Notre Dame). So we will do a return visit. I know of the little park next to the Cluny. We rested there one day while in the area. Thanks for the tips. I can always use recommendations.

You asked about Hermann house.  My response: DO IT!  We were there last summer and loved the house, the hosts and the convenience to major roads.  We travel annually with a group of painters and we were all scattered within a radius of Isle Sur la Sorgue.  One night we had the others over for a pot luck and all were totally envious.   The kitchen is so well equipped because it used to be where the owners lived.  There is a little wc conveniently located on the main floor, wonderfully furnished dining area with sunken tv room adjacent.  The terrace area is large and looks out onto a little garden area.  The upstairs is spacious w/three bedrooms and a great bathroom (double sinks and mirrors).   The master bedroom has a terrace and a walk in closet.   (Bed is ok, not marvelous.)   Even tho there are 3 bedrooms I would not recommend it for more couples unless you like sharing the bathroom.  A family would be better.
