As a foreign student living in paris I could only help you about the Maisons-Lafitte question. As a non Citizen of EU countries, I have to obtain a special visa and residence permit to study and live here, and provide solid evidence that I will be able to pay for their upkeep, board and lodgings during my studies and bear any other expenses they may have to incur like buying necessary text books, transport, etc...For this visa I need to have at least 500€ in my bank account EVERY month at least. But as youa re Spanish it is probably different. We are allowed to get a job to support ourselves (20hours/week), but, in any case, the job situation in France is dire with many applicants for very few jobs and these have to be given to EU and French citizens first before any other nationality. Anyway here is overall the daily cost I need to face even if you will be in boarding school, just count out what you need: - around 800€ rent for a flat in paris or near suburbs. It counts in the rent + electricity bill monthly - 30€ for internet monthly - 60€ for food monthly - 25€ cellphone bill monthly - around 32€ monthly for subway (more if you live in suburbs) This is all I can think of for now..anyway the priciest is the living and the eating of course

Kian Originally Answered: Schengen visa refused for France, approved for Germany, can I travel to france from germany?
Yes. A valid Schengen visa gives you the right to travel to any country in the Schengen zone regardless of prior denials. Note that when you applied for a German visa, you declared that your intent was visiting Germany, not France. Spending your entire time in France could theoretically be considered a violation of your visa rules and could be a reason to deny you a subsequent visa. However these rules are extremely hard to enforce (unless of course you admit to such a violation yourself when applying for the subsequent visa).

Sadly you have picked a topic on which there is very litlle to write. The people who live in Ile-de-France eat the same dishes as everywhere else in France or which are local specialities that originated elsewhere and there is no special gastronomic dish which is just specific to the region. Eating customs are exactly the same as in the rest of France, and, in any case, these days observance of certain customs are fast disappearing and foods that were eaten at a specific time of the year such as fish on Fridays or during Lent, pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, or turkey at Christmas, are now eaten all year round. You have to bear in mind that dishes that have made a name for themselves such as Coq au vin or mushroom omelet are eaten everywhere in France. However there are some produce which are specific to the region such as Champignons de Paris which are grown in caves,and old quarries, the Faro apple and the Grolay pears that are grown in local orchards as the Montmorency cherry which is used for preserves and jams. The Houdan poultry is locally popular for its unusual dark flesh and particular taste, and it is suited to slow cooked recipes. Other locally made specialities are Moutarde de Meaux, Brie and Coulommiers Cheese. Crayfish and river fish from rivers and canals. Two local liquors/ digestives are Grand Marnier, exclusivement made at Neauphle-le-Château, et le Noyau de Poissy and the local cider is called Cidre briar. Two locally made small pastries are Niflettes ( made for All Saints day in the region of Colommiers) and Roseaux du Grand Morin. Rose petal jam is a also a speciality of the region. Dishes which are popular or originate from the region are: Savoury: Les bouchées à la reine, le navarin d’agneau, le potage st-Germain, la tête de veau sauce gribiche, la gibelotte de lapin, la soupe gratinée aux oignons. Sweets: Paris–Brest, Saint Honoré, galette des rois Parisienne, choux Chantilly, chouquettes, brioche Nanterre, brioche parisienne, tarte Bourdaloue, Moka, puits d'amour, Opéra, millefeuille, savarin et flan parisien.

This Site Might Help You. RE: Ile-de-France cuisine? I'm looking for some information on the food of Ile-de-France. Like, what they eat for each meal, speacialty dishes, eating customs, and most popular foods. Any or all of this information will help. Also, please do not give me THAT WIKI ARTICLE!!! It has nothing to do with ILE-DE-FRANCE....

I do hope that you realize that there is no such city called Ile de France. Ile de France is one of 22 administrative areas in France. What you have asked is about the same as asking for the food in Michigan or maybe Alberta. When you want to know something about a city in France - just let us know. ..
