  • Great location perfect apartment

    "This was a wonderful little apartment in the heart of Paris, the apartment was clean and is pictured accurately. There are plenty of restaurants, grocery and sights all nearby. The owner was easy to work with and was there when we arrived to welcome us and give instructions on the flat. It has everything you need or could want, including WIFI and a computer. The only drawback was the bed was very, very firm and it came with extremely flat pillows, but the location and cute apartment outweighed this, but if I were staying longer I would have invested in pillows."

  • A Beautiful Home in a Lovely Village---Stay Two Weeks if You Can!

    "Sitting at home in front of my computer, it is a treat to begin to recall our relaxing, even lazy, stay at Coeur de Lion and the lovely village of SCL. We were somewhat ambivalent about spending a full two weeks in one place, as we are usually quite active on our vacations, moving every 1-2 days. Therefore, the idea of hanging out in one house and one village for a fortnight was truly unique for us. This is the perfect place for doing just that! The house is a mixture of history and modernity, which invites both comfort and ease while enjoying the experience of a medieval town. Others have spoken to how well appointed Coeur de Lion is and we would definitely agree! In addition, it is ideally located away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist area. It also offers easy access to a village parking lot and even better, a nice path down to the river for some great evening walks. Our mornings were generally slow to get started, after which we loaded our packs with a loaf of freshly baked bread, some cheese, and fruit from one of the local markets and found our way to one of the many treks in the area. The entire area of the Lot and the Dordogne are rich with history, just with the walking. We came upon Roman and Gothic ruins and saw many remnants of the cultures of the 100 Year War and the War of the Religions. Additionally, the area is rich with geological treasures and we enjoyed touring several of the caves. The Grotto du Pech Merle is not to be missed with its 30,000 year old pictographs of an ancient people. Simply amazing! One of the advantages of staying for two full weeks was to find ourselves, over time, truly immersed in the local culture and slowly our faces and even our names became known to the locals. We found the villagers friendly, helpful, and full of life. It is a life that seems to run a whole lot slower and be inhabited by people living more in sync with the abundance of the seasons as they take pride and enjoyment in sharing their crafts and agricultural products. Their hard work to make us, as visitors to their countryside, feel nourished in body and soul was much appreciated!"

  • Classy, convenient and charming

    "This apartment was spacious and classy. Fabulous location in terms of proximity to town - 5 minutes to all of Beaune's interesting sites. 5 minutes to a supermarket. The parking just around the corner was extremely convenient. Joce, the owner, was absolutely delightful to deal with and we will always think of our stay in Beaune with great fondness. Only 1 negative and that is the rumbling of car tires on the cobblestones of the streett as they pass next to the bedrooms at night. But not a huge worry as I fixed that with a set of earplugs. I would stay here again."

  • Perfect apartment Perfect location

    "We were 5 adults & 3 kids and HIGHLY recommend the apartment, it was exactly as it appears, was larger and more beautiful than expected, location is perfect watching the Eiffel Tower light up at night & for transit (we did not have a car), pastry shops and restaurants. A very safe location with the entry on a gated side alleyway. They have terrific brochures/binder for every touristy detail you need and the VIP passes are priceless for skipping massive lines & cost!!! The kitchen is well equipped, laundry is great incl. dryer! Owners are lovely & very helpful. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!"

Alsace Travel Tips

Enjoy Authentic French Living with Alsace Vacation Rentals

The Alsace region is on the eastern side of France, bordering Germany. Both German and French are widely spoken in the area, albeit with a strong local accent. Known for its natural beauty, the area enjoys stunning vistas of the Vosges Mountains which provide the perfect climate for vine-growing.

The capital of the Alsace region is Strasbourg, one of Europe’s classiest cities. Along with the excellent wines, the region is well known for its traditional cuisine including tasty cheeses, onion tarts, foie gras and German-influenced spaetzle or noodles. Enjoy pretty villages with half-timbered cottages; they are centuries old and decorated with flower boxes on the window sills. With a backdrop of rolling hills and acres of vineyards, the area is ideal for walking and cycling.

The Best Time to Visit the Alsace Region

Due to its mountain-shadow location, Alsace has one of the lowest rainfalls in Europe which is a big plus for vacationers. It is classified as having a Continental climate which means that each of the four seasons is pleasant. During the winter, Alsace vacation rentals are popular with skiers. The spring and summer seasons see the colorful displays of wild flowers. Late summer and autumn are the most popular seasons, when Alsace is at its hottest and most crowded.

Great Reasons for Choosing Alsace Accommodations

Renting Alsace villas gives visitors an opportunity to enjoy local life, staying in a cottage, gîte or villa accommodation, often in the heart of a village. The Alsace accommodations are far more spacious and home-like than local hotels, with the added pleasure of plenty of character. Delegate a member of the family to go down to the local boulangerie each morning for warm croissants, bread and patisseries fresh from the oven. Dine in the local restaurants in the evening or if you prefer, use your equipped Alsace accommodation to prepare simple meals based on the fresh seasonal produce accompanied by a local wine. Alsace accommodations offer flexibility for families and quiet relaxation for those looking for romantic breaks.

Getting to Your Alsace Villas

Alsace vacation rentals are very easy to get to from all over Europe. Low-cost flights to Strasbourg are frequent and the smart railway station has hourly train connections to Paris, London and Brussels, all less than three hours away. Once you have reached Alsace, you may want to rent a car to explore the region, or enjoy a slower pace of life by hiking and cycling, using your Alsace vacation rentals as bases from which to explore this charming area.

Things to Do from Alsace Vacation Rentals

Many visitors choose to visit Alsace during the wine harvest. Cycling, walking or driving along the wine route offers countless opportunities to stop and visit the local wineries for free tastings. You are never far from one of the castles which stand guard overlooking the vineyards and many date back to Roman times. The castles of Alsace often have special events and a tour gives insight into the history of the Alsace region. Horseback riding, cycling and hiking are popular ways to get around in the summer, and snow sports such as skiing and snowmobiling are popular in the winter months. Bungee jumping, paragliding and boating on the waterways are also popular activities.

Places to Visit from the Lovely Alsace Villas

Alsace villas are the perfect homes away from home to stay in while visiting Strasbourg. The historic part of this idyllic German-influenced city is laced with narrow cobbled streets, romantic waterways and beautiful townhouses. Known as “La Petite France,” it has charming shops, museums and attractions at every turn. The museums have fine collections of art and local history, making them an interesting place to visit and learn more about the Alsace region.
