  • An amazing find!

    "I have to admit that after looking at Air BnB and VRBO for several days for a two bedroom two bath place in Paris I had almost given up finding a decent place to stay. When I found this place there was a part of me that thought, is this too good to be true? Wow, wow wow was this not too good to be true. Perfect location first of all, second of all, the pictures are absolutely true to the reality of the place. Such a comfortable and nicely understated apartment, great decor and great amenities. I had several back and forth communications with Marion via email and a couple on the phone (when in Paris). She is amazingly gracious and very much concerned about your comfort and satisfaction with the apartment and your trip. She was unable to come to Paris during our stay, but her husband Gilles met us outside the apartment when we arrived and spent about 30 minutes ensuring we knew how everything worked and gave several suggestions of restaurants and places to see. Full disclosure, the hot water broke down while we were there. While that was an inconvenience, the other benefits of the apartment as well as the very hands on way in which Marion tried to solve the problem and her very real concern for our comfort made this almost a non issue. Things happen, it's the way they are handled that matters. I spoke to a woman who was from France (lives in AZ) and was visiting with her family and staying at a small hotel about our accomodations and she was very impressed with the location and the price for the size of the place we had found. Details: downstairs bedroom has a "full" size bed, shower, sink and toilet in downstairs bathroom. upstairs bedroom is quite large, queen size bed. Tub with a handheld shower (sort of awkward to take an actual shower), toilet and two sinks in bathroom. Living room has two very comfy chairs and a couch (it pulls out as a full size bed if needed). Washing machine, but no dryer. Dishwasher in kitchen. There is a wonderful bakery across the street from the apartment where we would buy ham and cheese on french bread for lunch every day. The owner of the bakery was very nice and I almost hugged her goodbye on our last day. All in all, I would absolutely return to this apartment and location if I am ever in Paris again. Highly recommended."

  • Great apartment in a perfect location

    "We loved this nice apartment. The location is ideal with easy access to 2 Metro stops and trains. Lots of good restaurants in short distance, and easy walk to Notre Dame, Luxembourg Gardens, and lots more. We definitely prefer this to staying in a hotel. was very comfortable for my family of 4 including 2 teenage boys. Bathrooms, especially showers were better than we expect of European facilities."

  • Best Vacation Rental Ever!

    "My husband and I booked this vacation rental in Paris for our 25th Anniversary trip. I have to say this was the best vacation rental we have had to date and we have used VRBO quite often in our travels. Veronique was a fantastic hostess. Any emails and inquiries were responded to promptly and the information she provided in advance regarding metro travel and airport transportation was exceptional. The accommodations were the highest standards. The studio was clean and very modern and had all the amenities required. The bed was extremely comfortable and the views from the apartment were spectacular! Veronique's instructions to get us there were perfect and she and her husband were helpful in getting our luggage to our suite. She provided great information on what to see and do in Paris and was available by email for any of our needs. We inquired by email about a place to eat for our anniversary and she suggested a local café a block away. Little did we know she had phoned them ahead of our arrival to let them know we were coming and that it was our anniversary. They had prepared candles, special house drinks and had baked a chocolate cake just for us and presented with candles and all! Needless to say, we were taken aback by the hospitality and generosity of our host and her attention to us. We would highly recommend this vacation rental."

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.
