Personal comments
There are nice pubs and lots of cafe'. the town is beautiful and offers quite a lot. However, unless you have lots of money, it is very difficult to enjoy all the nice bars, resturants, nightclubs etc. There is on Cinema (I think it was calles Mazarin) where they showed films in original language with French subtiteles. This is definitely a place to go! To get to the beach (usually crowded)you have to travel a bit though. The Provence is lovely. Eveywhere you go it smells of lavender

I wish I had known...
Not really to be honest - you have to do a bit of research and preparation yourself anyway.

Personal spending habits
Food, Housing and Nightlife are all cheaper in France than in England. I spent more on my phone simply as I had a pay as you go French simcard as opposed to a contract, and spent a lot on transport as I travelled extensively, in town however transport on buses is very reasonable.

Personal comments
The Cité Université de Cuques was basic at best but incredibly cheap. It is sufficient for my needs and well located for access to the city centre. My criticisms would be that the kitchen facilities were awful and it was an intimidating environment for females. Having said that there was a "Resto U" on site that was very reasonable. I would recommend it for it's value for money.
