  • How could you not love Lapopie!

    "From the moment we arrived we fell under the spell of Lapopie! The village was amazing (cannot think of another adjective!) and we are sure we still haven't discovered everything! Food....oh my goodness - what was not to like! The locals welcomed us even with our terrible mangling of their language! The trips to the local markets, in particular VilleFranche were amazing, so much glorious fresh food (do you see a theme developing!) Our Petite Villa was so romantic and peaceful - the lovely touch of flowers and a bottle of wine on arrival was terrific and I had organised a meal for our arrival from Penny Horn - who we can recommend - a great way to start our holiday. Our Villa was 'home' and welcomed us back each day after our adventures and we had a few, but more of that another time! We are planning our return in 2014! For those who have a musical bent, Allan left a guitar so please enjoy! Thank you Sharon and Pierre for sharing your home away from home with us. Jude & Allan"

  • A great place

    "This was a wonderful house! We are a group of 5, which included a toddler. And we all had plenty of space. It was a tricky house to watch a toddler, with the steps and pool, but doable. The pool was a welcome treat on the hot July afternoons. Within walking distance to the shops of Les Angles and the bus into Avignon. We only used the car to do day trips! Will definitely stay again for a return trip."

  • An Amazing Gem

    "My husband and I stayed here in May 2014. Our only regret...not staying longer! In total we were away from home for around 8 weeks. Paris and Fontaine Modern was the highlight of our trip. The apartment has all we required. For us, not one thing was missing. The living room, kitchen and dining area offer a wonderful space that allows you to stretch out and make yourself at home. This is something I have never experienced in Paris before. The bed was so comfortable and the bedroom incredibly spacious with loads of storage. The bathroom/laundry likewise ....the shower amazing!!! The neighbourhood is an eclectic mix like nowhere else I have stayed. There is much diversity in the rue's inhabitants, but everyone was friendly and we never felt uncomfortable (or at risk) any time of the day or night. The best bakeries in town (I reckon) were around the corner. An amazing butcher across the road. Plenty of restaurants to choose from, although we ate in most of the time because the neighbourhood supplied everything, and our kitchen transformed our purchases into wonderful meals! The apartment is so close to several Metro Stations that led to everywhere, if you chose to venture further!!! But the the biggest draw card was Paula. Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely Paula. So welcoming and helpful. Flowers and wine waiting for us. Some essentials in the pantry. She was there if needed; fortunately all was so perfect we did not. We cannot wait to go back. Thank you Paula for a wonderful experience and to Tom and Ann.....thankyou for allowing us to stay in your lovely home!"

  • Fantastic views & apartment

    "I was hesitant to rent this apartment due to the lack of reviews at VRBO; I rented it through MyParisVisit. This apartment exceeded my expectations. The location in the Marais was convenient to everything: metro, boulangerie, patisserie, fromagerie, grocery store, restaurants and to Notre Dame, Pompidou, Louvre, Latin Quarter, etc. The apartment itself is spacious and very comfortable with large shower and a separate washer and dryer. The kitchen was large with microwave, dishwasher, oven and huge refrigerator. What I remember most about this apartment was the VIEWS from all three rooms: bedroom, living room and Kitchen of the Eiffel, Notre Dame, Hotel de Ville, Pantheon and the wonderful rooftops. Every night I watched the Eiffel Tower light up. I would definite recommend staying here. We stayed for a month."

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.
