    Pat, just saw some lovely listings in Dole, France. Ever heard of the town….eastern France.
    Diana says you got the Visa! Congrats!

      Oh, send me links! maybe email? Have never been but had recently seen one possible ad. It’s 30-45 min from Dijon, under an hour to Beaune, 2-2.5 to Geneva. Haven’t checked to see what service there is at the nearby regional airport. Lyon is more like 3 hours. I am rather leaning towards the center or west-central region but have enjoyed roaming Burgundy and that is my favorite regional cuisine!
