  • A heavenly home in Caunes Minervois

    "I spent almost a month in Ingrid's gorgeous stone cottage and it was a life changing experience! The interior is just delightful as are the hosts Ingrid and Christopher. They were extremely helpful and kind and made me feel so at home that I can't wait to return and am about to make a new booking! The cottage is situated in the heart of the village and yet it is quiet and serene, the abbey's bells chime and the birds twitter. There are fabulous restaurants within walking distance and a very well stocked grocery store and of course heavenly wine cellars hosting excellent wines. The 3 storey cottage is just perfect for one or two people and so romantic, comfy and cosy; some days I just stayed at home reading from Christophers' incredible library. I would really recommend this lovely home to anyone coming to stay in beautiful magical Caunes Minervois!"

  • Magnifique propriété au calme,très bien située

    "Très ensoleillée, accueillante et propre. Beaucoup de place, grand séjour, grande cuisine superbement équipée et des lits de bonnes qualités. Le jardin est magnifique et bien entretenu, la piscine de taille agréable. Nous sommes venus avec nos amis, donc 6 adultes et 3 enfants et nous avons vraiment apprécié notre séjour "luxueux et authentique"! On se croit en pleine nature, mais les magasins ne sont pas loin du tout, de même pour le centre ville d'Aix et l’accès autoroute. Le quartier est très agréable, les photos sur google street view sont anciennes et c’est beaucoup plus beau en vrai. A quelques pas de la maison il est possible de prendre des chemins qui vous feront découvrir en quelques minutes des paysages grandioses. Nous avons fait de belles sorties à Cassis, Arles et dans le Luberon. Nous avons aussi visité Marseille, Cannes et même une journée à Monaco. Merci pour ce magnifique séjour. Nous allons très certainement revenir. Roger, Chantale Sophie, Igor, Hélène, Lucien, les Manus, de Bruxelles Belgique"

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.
