  • Great flat!

    "This was a great flat for our family. The apartment is very nice, clean, and in a great location. The kids loved the murphy beds. The agent who met us after hours (8:15 pm) was very thorough, knowledgeable and patient. He was not rushing to give us the keys and get out the door. As for location, the flat is in the middle of lots of restaurants and a lively area. Most restaurants in the area were also open on Sunday when many places in Paris are closed. It could get noisy with the windows open, but once we closed them we had no problem with noise. We were only there for one weekend, so we basically only did the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Notre Dame and some walking around. It was very easy to get to any of these locations. The Louvre and Notre Dame are within walking distance. The Eiffel Tower is about a 40 minute train ride. The metro station is very close - about 5 minutes. We walked to the St Michel/Notre Dame station with our luggage to take the train to the airport. About a 10 minute walk with luggage. It was fine for us - our kids are 10 and 12 years old - so they did not have a hard time taking their own luggage over the cobblestone roads and uneven sidewalks. There were also a few flights of stairs to carry the luggage to get to the train, but we did it with no problems. We would definitely stay in this flat again and highly recommend it!"

    "I first found Provence Paradis on VRBO for an adult group trip in 2010. For this first trip, our group of 10 stayed in Le Moulin, La Tour & a small hideaway room. Each member of our group fell totally in love with Provence Paradis. Everything was so incredible, that my husband & I returned with one of the couples in 2012, staying in Le Moulin. Again, this hamlet was truly a "Paradise." But our most amazing trip was this June, 2014. We stayed in La Tuilerie with our two sons & their wives for two weeks. Because this was our third time to stay here, I felt like William & his amazing staff were like family. From the delicious meal awaiting us, to all the "extras" William provided, we never wanted to leave. The gardens, pool & spa are so enticing that you must include time in your stay to just relax & breathe in the smells of Provence. We took many day trips recommended by William - Isle sur la Sorgue, La Vaucluse, Arles, Avignon, Chateau Neuf du Pape & so many more. William is an expert on all these sites, & we just had to mention that "William sent us" & everyone treated us like royalty. William IS Provence Paradis. His heart knows no bounds in meeting each guest's requests. He is so intuitive of his guests, that he anticipates their desires before they can. His dedication to adhering to the history & culture of this region is nothing short of a true "labor of love." Each of the houses are exemplary of French provincial architecture & decor. While staying in these houses, we get to "live" history. One of our most enjoyable activities was a personal chef day arranged by William. After discussing what we wanted to have for lunch, Maria (the chef) took us to the market in St. Remy where we bought all the fresh ingredients necessary. We then returned to La Tuilerie where we prepared our own lunch under the tutelage of this marvelous chef. Our gourmet lunch was perfect! William & a neighbor in the hamlet joined us for an unforgettable experience. We will continue to vacation in "Paradise" with William for many years to come."

  • Would stay again, given the chance!

    "I spent 6 nights at Marais Chic with my adult daughter and it was perfect for us. We each had plenty of space and privacy with two bedrooms and two baths. The kitchen is great for fixing breakfast or a simple lunch but I probably wouldn't attempt dinner. ...but why would you want to? Paris has some of the best food in the world! There are many restaurants within short walking distance. There are markets nearby to pick up breakfast and snack supplies. The location is slightly off the beaten path of the major tourist attractions but we are walkers so it didn't bother us at all. The metro is very close if you wish to use that instead. The apartment was very quiet - never heard noise from above or below when trying to sleep. The washer and dryer was a nice perk to keep from having to pack so much. We also took advantage of the driver to pick us up at the airport and drop us off at the train station. He was prompt and courteous. All in all, great apartment - clean with comfortable beds. Cecile was great to work with. Would stay again, given the chance!"

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.
