InterContinental Marseille – Hotel Dieu, an A-maze-ing hotel

InterContinental Bordeaux le Grand Hotel

During a short coast to coast trip through southern France our first stop was in Bordeaux, a city both Timothy and I have been wanting to visit. As we both like our share of luxury we decided to stay in the InterContinental Bordeaux Le Grand Hotel.

Hotel Mercure Avignon Centre Palais des Papes

To escape the grey and wet Belgian wintery weather Gillis and I went for a short break in Southern France. We travelled there by train and would be staying 5 nights in Avignon to use it as a base for discovering the region and cities like Arles, Orange and Nîmes.
