  • Beautiful gite and excellent hosts

    "We spent a very relaxing two weeks in this beautiful gite which was surrounded by a delightful garden. The gite was very comfortable and clean and contained everything we needed for an enjoyable holiday. Carolyn and Tony were wonderful hosts and they made us feel at home straight away, nothing was too much trouble Although the gite was in a very peaceful location it was only a short drive to many of the attractions of Normandy. I would recommend this gite to anyone and would certainly be delighted to stay there again in the future."

  • séjour très agréable et dépaysant !

    "Gite situé dans un adorable village, avec de belles bâtisses en pierre : un village avec une âme. Le gîte était très propre et très bien équipé, avec largement de quoi satisfaire une dizaine de personnes, notamment en terme d'équipement ménager. La petite boulangerie locale dépanne bien pour les premières nécessités. Nous avons apprécié la cave locale et un tour dans les gorges, en voiture seulement en raison des conditions climatiques... épisode cévenol ! Ca nous donnera l'occasion de revenir ! Une bonne adresse !"

  • Close to Metro, clean, safe location

    "Apartment is as advertised. The owner was there when agreed, and available if necessary however we did not require anything. It was clean and well-supplied with laundry soap, dishsoap, etc. it is close to a supermarket, restaurants, and the Metro. It can be a little noisy at night with the window open, but quiet when it is closed. The beds are not very comfortable, however, and be warned that the mezzanine is only 4 ft high. A good apartment for the price."

  • Perfect Location

    "This apartment was the most perfectly located place we could have hoped for. There were six of us and the large space was comfortable for us all. The location could not have been better. We were a block from the tram, right across the street from a wonderful supermarket, and about a three block walk from the train station. The Old Town section was a tram ride away or a short walk and the market there and shops were very interesting. We cooked at home one night and the apartment had everything we needed to enjoy the evening's meal. Would definitely stay here again if it is available."

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.
