Subject: France - Paris Hotel and Menton
Dear Carrol We really enjoyed the Hotel de la Bretonnerie in the Marais area of Paris. We thought this street was a lot of fun, and we also thought it would have been a lot more fun if we were in our twenties instead of middle-aged. Young people were having a ball on the rue de la Bretonnerie in the evenings. Dancing, laughing, roller-blading, etc. There was a lively bar on the street, and lots more in the area, as well as a small comedy theater with young adults lined up to get in every night. A website for the hotel is:

Standard doubles at this hotel are less that the price you mentioned. This is a favorite of Jack of the famous Paris website. Have you checked him out:

Wish I could share on Menton, but hopefully that lies somewhere in our future. '-) Cheers Debbie in Pittsburgh
