To add to previous suggestions, you can have some information on the meteofrance (french public service) website. For example, for Hendaye : http://www.meteofrance.com/previsions-meteo-france/hendaye/64700 where you can see at the page bottom average rain, temperatures, and so on. (Rain is something to take into account if you plan to visit Pays Basque).

It is better to be safe than sorry when it comes to using the Aire de Service sites. There have been a variety of stories in the press in recent times where people have had some form of gas used in the air vents of motorhomes so that thieves can gain access and steal items from them. Please take care not to use the motorway stations overnight and use either ...

Château d’Amboise Located east of Tours but not by much and spec has “roughly” Angers to Tours. The seat of kings of France and location of Leonardo da Vinci’s tomb (whether containing any of his remains is another matter!) in St Hubert’s Chapel, itself a charming little independent building. Has terraces 40 metres above the adjacent town and river, making ...

I support your original idea: Flying to Strasbourg SXB, taking a local train from the airport downtown (costs like €4, can be bought at the station, and takes like 20 minutes), visiting the Strasbourg city centre since it's really beautiful, and then taking a TER train from Strasbourg to Nancy (the ticket costs at most €25, less if you book in advance, it ...

Fly to CDG and Take the TGV Of all the already mentioned solutions, I think the sanest are either the TGV from CDG to Gare Lorraine TGV, followed by another train to Nancy. Or CDG to Gare de l'Est via RER/metro, followed by a TGV to Nancy Gare Thiers (the central station). Since I currently live here I can only say "been there, done that". Sounds awfully ...

Yes, you can. The visa is your authorization to travel to the port of entry for the country that issued your the visa. It does not dictate from where you should travel. You can travel from Qatar, Egypt, or any other country. I should mention though - some countries issue visas that dictate how you may travel. For example, Saudi Arabia can issue you a land ...

Nancy is a medium-sized town, 1½ hour away from Paris by train. That's too small to sustain flights between Paris and Nancy. The Metz/Nancy airport has infrequent connections to a few other French towns which lack convenient train connections, and to a few international cities that people fly to from Nancy. But Nancy's main airport is Paris. There are two ...

Nancy and Metz and two relatively large cities, close to each other along a North-South axis. They are not big enough to support two distinct airports, two high-speed train lines (which necessarily run East-West since they come from Paris…), etc. Consequently, many infrastructure projects are built half-way between the cities, which is not really satisfying ...

There are flights from the USA to Lyon and then from Lyon to Metz/Nancy, but I am not sure which airlines have interline agreements with Airlinair (who apparently are the only carrier to serve Metz from Lyon). You might need to book separate tickets, though you could check both KLM and Air France websites. You could fly to Amsterdam, Paris or Luxemburg and ...

The nearest airport to Nancy that handles commercial traffic is the Metz–Nancy–Lorraine Airport, which is somewhat far from the town of Nancy. According to Wikipedia: Ground transportation A shuttle bus to Nancy and Metz meets every departing and arriving flight. The journey takes about 30 minutes and costs 8 euros. Since this is a smaller ...

I dont think it will be a problem, Imagine if you are travelling to multiple countries, and take a visa for all three from your home country, you would naturally travel from a country other than the one which issued you a visa. Port of origin wont matter at all for any visa. Specifically I am not able to find an evidence which can support my argument

Whether it is for studies, for work or for any other purpose, a visa for 5-6 months is almost certainly a national long-stay visa. It means that the rules detailed in Getting a tourist Schengen visa after working visa fully apply to your situation. Concretely, the time spent under the French long-stay visa does not count towards the 90 days limit for short ...

The application form for a long-stay student visa does not ask about itinerary, visits to other countries, etc. like a Schengen visa application form because it is not intended for trips across Europe but only for people who want to study in France. Having a French long-stay visa or residence permit does allow short stays in other Schengen countries (up to ...

I agree with all the other answers. Bottom line: the best way to tour an entire country is by Road. Depending on the type of journey you are planning there are various combinations of means of transportation you could use. For example, if you plan to stay for a long period in a region, say Normandy, and then think of moving all the way across the country to ...

The simple answer is of course, obviously, get a car. France is - well - France. You want to see every little village, tour around and see everything. So, you'll be "touring" - get a car. French trains are fantastic for TRAVEL - so, you're in Lyon and you need to go to Paris for some reason; you're in Zurich and you need to go to Barcelona for some reason. ...

Here's an adapter that does exactly what you want (it is type F, but type E will also fit AFAIK). If you can not get that adapter for any reason, you can always buy a separate grounding pin and install it (at your own risk), I would ask an electrician to do it.
