Recent Aquitaine reviews

  • Excellente Location

    "Nous avons adoré l'appartement ! Il est exactement comme sur les photos ( même mieux en vrai...), très propre, avec une décoration soignée. Il est idéalement situé en plein centre d'Arcachon et à quelques pas de la plage. Les propriétaires sont des gens très sympathiques qui prennent le temps de discuter avec vous et de vous donner des conseils pour un séjour au top ! Nous gardons cette adresse, nous reviendrons !"

  • Perfection in Bordeaux

    "My husband and I.had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful apartment in the St. Pierre district of Bordeaux. We were met by Alain the landlord/host who was very professional, informative and helpful. He even lent us his own GPS when we realized that we had brought along the wrong one from home. The apartment was spotless, well appointed, modern, and in a safe and vibrant neighbourhood in old town. Everything you could want was just steps outside the door, from bakeries, bars, restaurants and grocery stores, to all the heritage sights of Bordeaux. If ever we have the good fortune of returning to beautiful Bordeaux we will definitely plan to stay at this lovely apartment."

  • Best Week Ever!

    "All the reviews and the VRBO listing on Mont Joie were accurate. We lucked out with absolutely perfect weather for our visit. I could repeat the rave reviews from others, but I won't. Our group was thrilled the minute we first walked in the door and remained that way all week. The host is very organized and a good communicator. The one feature of Mont Joie that I haven't seen mentioned in other reviews would be the village of Beynac in terms of its charm, friendliness, and convenience for day trips around the Dordogne and Lot regions. I think we could have lived happily in Beynac for a month or longer. One other advantage is the exercise you get daily walking the streets of Beynac. I hope it will be available when I am ready to go back!"

  • Private paradise by the river Dordogne

    "A lovingly restored former post station, this pretty house is in a wonderful spot - directly by the river and surrounded by a huge private garden with a decent sized pool. The two bedrooms are generously sized and tastefully decorated on the first floor with a private staircase and off a private landing. The bathroom is in the middle - very suitable for a family of 4 (with kids old enough to be a bathroom away) or two couples sharing - though one bedroom clearly had the edge with a little sofa and overlooking the garden. We spent 5 summer days at Chambres Armanse and could barely believe our luck. While the other guests (a double room and gite) also had access to the pool, we had it to ourselves a lot of the time - what a treat - when we weren't busy building dams by the river edge. Agnes was a wonderful host, we took advantage of her French breakfast - coffee, sweet Viennoiserie, home made jam, fruit - which she served outside when the sun was out. Slightly odd - rooms are cleaned/beds made only on request. Everything is sparkling though and very nicely designed, including the shared area downstairs (the pictures you see of the colourful armchairs)."

Aquitaine Travel Tips

Experience European Charm at Aquitaine Vacation Rentals

Aquitaine has a rich cultural heritage. The area was the southernmost region of Gaul which fell under Roman control. Through the centuries, it has been under a variety of foreign rule and was one of the last regions to be incorporated into what is modern-day France. Traveling through the area is a unique experience and to truly appreciate its richness, you need to stop and linger a while. One of the best ways to do this is to rent a vacation home in one of the towns or villages of the Aquitaine region.

Travelers to Aquitaine

Aquitaine has a rich array of attractions, and those interested in foreign cultures and history will appreciate its treasures. There are three distinct regions which attract different types of visitors. The Atlantic coast is a popular destination for beach vacations in the summertime. The foothills of the Pyrenees form the southern border with Spain and have many quaint Basque Villages. The interior is characterized by wine lands and medieval castles. The capital of this region is Bordeaux. The area is particularly well known for its superb wines. As a connoisseur, you can explore the region and taste wines from cellars that have been producing wines for hundreds of years. If you are not quite a wine expert, you can still enjoy the sheer beauty of the wine lands.

Great Options for Aquitaine Accommodations

Imagine waking up in the morning and looking out over an ancient vineyard from your bedroom window. There are many stone cottages and farmsteads that are available as vacation rentals. Some are more than 300 years old and have been lovingly restored to provide visitors with an authentic yet comfortable stay. Other accommodation options include country villas or apartments in town. Some have been built in recent years and are quite modern by comparison. Most are conveniently located near the major nearby tourist attractions. You can choose from small one-bedroom cottages or a spacious farm house that overlooks the valley. Staying in a vacation home will give you a far better feel for the destination than staying in a more commercial-type hotel. In a rental home, you have the opportunity to interact with the locals. Most likely, you will do your shopping at the local grocer or market which is a wonderful experience all on its own.

Things to see and do by Aquitaine Villas

Sightseeing is not something that can be rushed in this beautiful corner of France. One of the best ways to get around is to hire a car and create an itinerary of places that you would like to visit based on your interests. Wine cellars throughout the Bordeaux area offer tasting and cellar tours. If you aren’t a wine expert when you arrive, you’ll certainly know what some of the world’s best wines taste like once you leave. For the cultural enthusiasts, there are medieval castles that line the river banks, interesting museums, ancient ruins and Basque Villages that are well worth visiting. Cycle tours and horseback riding tours run throughout the summer months. These are perfect for travelers who enjoy a more active type of holiday. You can choose from day tours in one particular area or multi-day tours that explore several towns and villages.

Best Time of Year to Visit Aquitaine

The region is its most spectacular in the summer months. The long summer days and warm temperatures make it the most popular tourist season. If you don’t like the crowds then the late summer and fall months of August and September are a better option.
