If you want to travel around France (highly recommended), make sure to get a "carte 12 - 25" for the train - it's excellent and will save you loads of money!!

Personal comments
They could have had more equipment and furniture available, e.g. table and chairs in the kitchen, an oven, pots and pans etc. There wasn't even a common room with a television, no telephone, etc!
