  • Superb!

    "Relaxing, beautiful, comfortable! If you want an extremely pleasant experience, you have found the place to stay. After a fun day exploring Amboise and its environs, my grown family of five would return to this lovely retreat and have a great night's sleep. Thank you, Karine and Thierry, for providing such a lovely apartment for our use. It is a little slice of heaven!"

  • Awesome!! We loved our Studio Flat! Lovely and great location!

    "I highly recommond this wonderful studio flat. It is a great studio apartment in a super building with a great location. We parked our car right under the building, but also just walked to the major sites such at Notre Dame, the Seine, etc. Also the bus and metro were very close too. The street was nice and quiet, with a great little supermarket on the street, and a great bakery right around the corner. We loved the furnishings, the courtyard and the very secure feeling we had in our apartment. We never met Bettina, but she was very quick in responding to my emails. Guillaume met us exactly as planned with our keys on arrival and explained the flat to us. And on our departure, he was also there right on time. Bettina returned our security deposit very quickly too! I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful flat. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to anyone going to Paris. Bettina has two other flats in the building, so if you want more space you could book those. I was there with my three children and it was perfect!"

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.
