Resolved Question: Nicest places in the
My family and I (15 year old daughter, 13 year old son, 9 year old son, my husband and myself) are planning to go to the south of France in the summer and are struggling to pick a region. We are looking for somewhere hot, near the beach and would like to hire an apartment/villa with a pool (shared or private, it doesn't matter). My daughter can speak fluent French so we don't particularly need somewhere where they speak English and we don't want an area full of tourists. Thanks.

Resolved Question: Where can I listen to
I went to the South of France, and just got back. I went to Gruissan on Thursday (9th of July, 2009) and it was pretty late at night. In the centre of the town, just outside a cafe, there was a brilliant live band playing. Some of their music was in English, most was French. I absolutely adored their sound, but didn't know their name. Can you help me out? I remember it was a lead male singer, two female backing singers, drums and guitars, perhaps a bass. Help?! :)

Resolved Question: France - Summer holiday
Calling all experts on France! We are visiting in the summer for a 10 day holiday. We are driving from the UK and doing it at our own speed but want a mix of relaxation and sun! Our intention is to take leisurely drive down, maybe one or two stops at several places of interest (got these ones sorted!) and to get at our ultimate destination which I hope will be somewhere sunny, has a pool, somewhere to relax but also a town to explore (without the car!). This is where I need your help...!
Does anyone know any old/lovely/not too lively/maybe low key resort town but with enough going on French towns we can base our holiday around? I have been to the Vendee and Ardeche regions and love both areas but can't think of anywhere that springs to mind. The key is not TOO lively (i.e. clubs/bars), needs to have restaurants/cafes/bar etc, not too resort-ey but equally has enough going on (i.e. Paris/Rome too lively). I was thinking Montpelier or Aix on Provence but wondered if these weren't holiday/lounging enough so started to think maybe somewhere by the sea....any ideas appreciated!!!!!!
