Her French Hotels for Less
Unbelievably Great Accommodations from $50
Looking for lots of ambiance and character in this elegant, chic city?
The Cardinal's definitely got that special something. It's an 18th-century, two-building hotel with nice-sized, high-ceilinged rooms
and it's beautifully furnished in the French provincial style. Lovely art, a stone staircase, fireplaces (non-functioning), and pretty gardens
contribute to the overall romantic effect. We don't want to sacrifice too much to character, though, and all rooms feature thoroughly modern

In Avignon she suggests...
Many of the rooms in this hotel boast 18th-century stone walls and high
wood-beamed ceilings. How lovely! Every room is simply furnished, bright, and pretty. There are only three
floors and no elevator but there is a beautiful 18th-century staircase that heightens the sense of history
you'll feel in this thriving cultural city. You may want your own facilities but keep in mind that rooms with no
shower or toilet are less expensive. Parc is owned and managed by the very warm and friendly Roger and

An apartment of her
own in Cannes...
Hotel C�t� Mer/Sea Side
|I had the wonderful opportunity of staying in one of these studios. I felt like I had my
own apartment in Cannes. It's a unique and charming, 19th-century, renovated theatre hotel with
contemporary, furnished, huge, modern studios and apartments. The fully-equipped kitchenette was a pleasure. A bonus for the working woman -- each room is equipped for computers and modems. Modern,
huge bathrooms, brightly colored tiled floors, and high ceilings add up to fabulous rooms for the money. Be
forewarned that during the TV and film festivals there are minimum day requirements. The hotel is located
on the 2nd floor of an apartment building so don't expect any type of lobby or reception area.
P.S. The hotel is owned and managed by Patrick Brovelli who is quite charming. I
promise you won't be disappointed...

Now that you have your hotel tips, here's a few dining out tips. Learn
them well and your French waiter might even think he's serving a local.
- At the dinner table, hands are placed on the table when you are not
- Bread should be broken, not cut. It is placed on the table, not the
- Place your knife and fork side by side across your plate when the
meal is over.
- Mineral water is frequently served at a meal.
- Cheese is served at the end of the meal. Put the cheese on your
plate and not directly onto the bread.
- To request the check, make a writing gesture in the air.
