  • Perfect property for touring the Dordogne region

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this wonderful, tranquil property and wish that we had stayed longer. St. Vincent de Cosse is a charming, quiet village that is conveniently located 5-15 minutes away from must-see towns in the Dordogne region including Beynac, Castelnaud and La Roque Gageac. We are so glad that we did not stay in Sarlat (huge) or Beynac - both were very touristy. The property has beautiful views. There is a large grocery store and gas station 7 km away from the house adding to the convenience. The property itself is lovely and spacious. The kitchen has everything you could possibly desire and there is a large living room (with English TV channels) and a large dining room. We never used the dining room though because the outside patio terrace was so beautiful. You can hear sheep, donkeys and church bells throughout the day adding to the charm. They have nice mattresses and pillows so we slept comfortably as well. Our two daughters, ages 7 & 10, loved the house, the backyard area (petanque court and swing), and especially the pool. We were concerned about having no air conditioning in August but the stone house was incredibly cool and we were quite comfortable. The owners were extremely responsive to two small problems that we had while we were there and they have been wonderful to deal with throughout the booking process. They also provided a wealth of information including kayaking vendors and restaurant recommendations. We give this property our highest recommendation and the region is the most beautiful we have toured in France."

  • Wonderful fall week in St Remy

    "Although we had visited St. Remy briefly several years ago, we wanted to have an extended stay of 15 days in order to get to know the area better. This was the perfect house for us. We totally enjoyed the rooftop terrace, and the layout of rooms enabled us to have time apart when needed. The furnishings are gracious and comfortable; parking was no problem if one didn't mind a short (5-minute) walk to the public parking area; and St. Remy itself is an easily accessible town within comfortable reach of many sites in Provence. Our hosts' caretaker, Chantal, was extremely welcoming and helpful. We'd recommend this property highly."

  • Great location and view

    "We enjoyed the apartment very much. The location was very interesting with a great view and lots of interesting shops and restaurants close by. It was close enough to the Metro Station to be very handy to get to all of the attractions we took in. We took a Discovery Walk tour of Montmartre that was very interesting. Having the washing machine was very convenient and we used it several times during our stay. Thanks!"

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.
