  • Loved this conveniently located apartment!

    "My friend and I recently visited Paris for two days and stayed in this apartment. The apartment is small but all that two people need. The location is great--in walking distance of shops, bakeries,and many famous sites in Paris! The owner, Leila, was accessible and extremely helpful in making our dream trip to Paris a reality."

  • Bel espace près de la mer

    "La maison est grande et lumineuse, les pièces très spacieuses et sobrement décorées. Le grand jardin offre une immense pelouse sans vis-a-vis, avec de nombreux emplacements ombragés pour accueillir la table du repas ou les chaises-longues. Les petiots apprécieront le baby-foot, la table de ping-pong et les nombreux jouets mis à leur disposition, ainsi que les vélos de toutes tailles. Les plages sont accessible en quelques minutes, avec une mention particulière pour la plage de sable de Trégonnour avec de vastes zones de parking et qui est surveillée par des sauveteurs. Le seul point qui nous inquiétait un peu était la proximité de la route d'accès à la pointe de Mousterlin, point de passage obligé qui est très circulante - et malheureusement sans piste cyclable. Mais le confort de la maison, la gentillesse et l'accueil chaleureux d'Antoinette et son mari font rapidement oublier ce désagrément, d'autant plus que la circulation se réduit à presque rien en fin de journée. -> Un bel endroit pour des vacances en famille ou en groupe d'amis."

  • 2 semaines plus qu'agréables

    "Jouques est un joli village provençal, avec son marché dominical. A 20mn à pied de la maison, à moins de 30mn d'Aix, et à proximité du Lubéron, du Verdon et de la vallée de la Durance. Très bien situé donc pour rayonner en Provence. Environnement très calme, aucune nuissance de voisinage, hormis quelques passages de voitures, nous n'avons vu ni entendu personne. Le lotissement présente de larges parcelles, on a donc l'impression d'être seuls dans la nature, d'autant que c'est non clôturé. Situation en haut de colline, vue au loin, par conséquent parfois venteux. Attention à la piscine : grande longueur appréciable, qualité de l'eau incomparable avec une piscine chimique, mais demande plus d'entretien par vous-même. Les algues au sol et aux murs sont un peu déroutantes et ne destinent pas cette piscine aux jeux mais uniquement à la nage. Du coup, on passe moins de temps dedans. Intérieur spacieux, très propre et où il ne manque rien, chaque chambre ayant sa salle de bain ou douche. Si vous faites attention à fermer les rideaux, la maison restera fraîche et c'est bien appréciable la nuit alors que ça plombe la journée. Petits-déjeuners, déjeuners et diners agréables sous la grande terrasse couverte. Pour info, pas de barbecue, nous on en a apporté un électrique (charbon interdit). Le boulodrome est en friche et en pente, inutilisable : à revoir. Enfin accueil très sympathique par les propriétaires, ils nous ont invités à dîner car nous sommes arrivés tard. Puis très bonne relation tout le long du séjour, encore merci ! Nous n'avons pas vu passer nos 2 semaines de farniente et tourisme, ce qui est bon signe."

  • Wonderful flat with a perfect location!

    "I can not gush enough about this rental. It was so incredibly perfect for our trip to Paris. Located on a busy street, HOWEVER, it faces the courtyard and we NEVER heard any street noise, only St. Paul's bell. The flat was well appointed and the bed was SUPER comfortable. There was a great bakery, wine shop and plenty of restaurants around, it was perfect. Honestly, our trip couldn't have been better. Thank you so much!"

French Riviera (Cote d'Azur) Travel Tips

The French Riviera is the Perfect Vacation Destination

The French Riviera, also known as the Côte d'Azur, has all the glitz and glamor you could ever hope for. It is rivaled by few places on earth which makes it one of the truly magical and inviting vacation destinations of all time. Situated on the French coast of the Mediterranean Sea, the Alps protect the area from the harsh inland winds while the sultry Mediterranean’s warm gentle breezes draw you in. This dreamland makes French Riviera villas the perfect escape from the daily grind of your real life. Once you stay here, you will never want to go home!

When to Book French Riviera Accommodations

The summer months on the French Riviera, particularly July and August, can be stifling hot but crowded as well. If you want to avoid throngs of tourists and other vacationers, the summer is not the best time to go. Furthermore, you will find that prices are higher during this peak season as well. June and September are the ideal months to plan on booking French Riviera vacation rentals simply because the weather is gorgeous and the prices are right. It is important to know the vacation habits of the locals before you plan your trip as well. From mid-July throughout August, almost all of France is on vacation, so that may pack the roads, rentals, and beaches. You will also want to watch out for May with all of its church holidays as many main attractions are closed.

French Riviera Helpful Travel Tips

As you plan your trip to the French Riviera, knowing how to get in and around is a key element of having a successful vacation. If you plan to fly in, the Nice Côte d'Azur Airport is probably your best bet as it sits between Antibes and Nice. There are frequent flights between major cities across the globe and Paris which is then only an hour flight to Nice. The train is also a possibility as Nice is a major crossroads for trains arriving from Paris, northern French cities, and Italy. The Côte d'Azur line is also pleasing to tourists as it affords many great sights along the way. Taking the bus or having a rental car allows you to penetrate deeper into the smaller villages and backcountry spots throughout the region. If you plan on visiting the lesser traveled paths, these may be your best bet. You will be able to get a bus schedule easily from any travel agent or from the bus depot itself. Be sure to rent your car from one of the main rail stops.

Talking the Talk

Because much of the region makes its living through some form of tourism or another, many people will have no problem speaking English, especially in the most popular tourist areas. You may also find that many of the waiters and managers speak English natively or fluently but it would not hurt to try your best at French. Service is always better when you try the native language.

Staying Safe

Staying safe on vacation is always a main concern and the French Riviera is no different. Though Monaco lodging is very safe, the rest of the region has a reputation that challenges personal safety. Petty crimes such as pickpocketing, car theft, and burglary are all too common. Just do your best to avoid being a victim by staying aware of your surroundings, locking the door to your French Riviera accommodations, and not flaunting your valuables.

Things to do and See

The French Riviera is famous for St. Tropez, Monaco and the Cannes Film Festival. But there are plenty of lesser known attractions for you to enjoy. Have you thought about visiting the perfumeries of Grasse, the glass-blowers of Biot, or the perched quaint villages of Eze and Gourdon? Stepping into these areas will make you feel as though you have stepped into a living Picasso painting. Filled with mountain scenery, beach views, and everything in between, the French Riviera allows for a chic, energetic, and unforgettable vacation every time you visit.
