Under $100 / Europe

The cozy lakeside town of Beauduen is a fantastic place to spend a few days in summer. Here’s how to experience it on a budget.

Start with breakfast at Café du Midi, which serves classic French fare for decent prices. Grab an omelette for $9 and wash it down with a lovely coffee ($2).

Now it’s time to get out onto the water of Lac de Sainte-Croix, the beautiful turquoise lake you can see from everywhere in town. Choose from kayaks, canoes, pedalos or boats. Prices vary but you can have an hour in a kayak for $8 as your cheapest option.

Hungry from all of the paddling, head back to town for lunch at Hirondelle. Bag a seat outdoors to enjoy the sun while you chow down on hearty portions of steak or salad ($20).

In the afternoon, wander around one of the local markets where farmers come to sell their wares. Pick up some olives, truffles and cheese as you wander around. There are also flea markets where you might find a good souvenir.

For dinner, go to Le Papillon and order a meat and cheese board with some wine ($15). This place gets pretty lively at night, so hang around for a few more glasses and see where the night takes you.
