  • C'etait merveilleux!

    "Je voudrais bien recommander cette bonne adresse. Nous sommes été a Grambois pour deux semaines et c'était magnifique! La maison est aménage avec de bon gout, la cuisine est super équipée et dans le jardin on a une belle vue au village de Grambois. L'accueil a la maison était très sympa. Il y a une boulangerie a proximité et on peut faire des courses a Tour d'Aigues (5 km) ou il y a aussi une station-service. Le paysage est très bucolique, il y a des villages pittoresques, par exemple Lourmarin, Ansouis et Cucuron. On peut faire des excursions a Aix-en-Provence, Gorges du Verdon, Colorado provençale, Apt, Mont St.Victoire, St. Remy-en-Provence etc...Mais on a besoin d'une voiture, c'est une région rurale - très belle! Merci pour des vacances magnifiques. Christiane (Allemagne/Rhenanie-du-Nord-Westphalie)"

  • Warm welcome in beautful Provence

    "Holydays House is a charming, clean, well-maintained property with everything you could need for your stay and as advertised. The owners, together with their daughter were delightful, friendly hosts and made us feel more than welcome. The use of the swimming pool as well as the barbecue area was most welcome as were the little 'extras' of local olive oil, wine, fruit and vegetables as well as a bunch of lavendar from the garden for both me and my daughter in law at the end of our stay. The property is situated in a very beautiful part of the country and just a short distance from St Remy de Provence, with it's wonderful side streets and magnificent restaurants, notably La Cigale and L'Industrie in St Remy. Holydays is a great base from which to visit the area - we would especially recommend Gréoux les Bains in the National Park, Van Gogh's bridge at Arles and of course Avignon. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone whether for just a relaxing break or a sight seeing base."

  • Our Home Away From Home.

    "I can't exactly recall how many times we have returned, but it's quite a lot. We think of Armelle's villa as our home away from home. It's very comfortable, has a very good kitchen with everything you need, and it's location is very good and quiet. Access to Cannes is simple, whether you walk or drive. We also thoroughly enjoy Armelle's company and sense of humour."

Languedoc-Roussillon Travel Tips

Immerse Yourself in the Culture of Languedoc Roussillon

There is no better way to discover and enjoy the culture of a foreign destination than to become a resident there, even if it is just for a short time. Languedoc Roussillon vacation rentals offer just that opportunity. In your own apartment or home, you can quietly observe the comings and goings of the locals, seek out the local bakery, butcher and café, and bargain for fresh produce at the local market. It'll help if you can speak a little French as it'll make it easier to get around. Even if you don't, you'll soon pick up a few phrases so that you can get by. Rather than being labeled as a tourist, you'll simply be a visitor that's staying a little while. Once you've experienced provincial life, it'll be tempting to return time and again to this wonderful corner of Europe.

Getting to and Around Languedoc Roussillon

The major airports in the area are Montpellier-Mediterranean Airport and Nîmes-Arles-Camargue. Smaller airports that have incoming regional flights are Carcassonne (Salvaza) and Note re Carcasonne Airport. International flight connections will take you via Paris, London or Madrid. A number of low cost airlines from the UK offer great deals and are worth investigating when checking flights. Once in France, there is an extensive public transport system consisting of trains, buses and trams. You can also hire a car if you will be exploring further afield but be sure of your ability to drive on the narrow country roads and busy highways. Many active travelers staying at Languedoc Roussillon villas choose to explore the region by bike; while it requires a good level of fitness, it's a superb way to take in the countryside and experience the local culture.

Seasonal fun in Languedoc Roussillon

Languedoc Roussillon accommodations are set in some of France's most scenic countryside. The region is bordered by the Mediterranean sea to the east and the Pyranees Mountains to the south. It is one of the warmer regions in France and attracts visitors throughout the year. In the summertime, there's a hive of activity as sun-lovers flock to the coastal towns and cities. The atmosphere is festive and there are numerous events to keep you entertained. Further inland there are rivers, lakes and nature reserves that are great to explore with the family. In the wintertime, snow sports can be enjoyed in the mountain regions. The area is popular for cross country and downhill skiing as well as dog sledding and ice skating.

Visit Historic Sites by Languedoc Roussillon Villas

One of Europe's great attractions is its rich history and culture. In Languedoc Roussillon, one of the most notable cultures is that of the Cathars. A religious group that started in the 11th century, it became the dominant religion in the Languedoc region in the 12th century. However, many of the Cathar views directly opposed those of the Roman Catholic Church and this resulted in open animosity between the two organizations. In the 12th century, the Vatican led a crusade against the Cathars with the objective of eliminating them. The genocide which lasted for two generations resulted in the death of close to 500,000 people, including many who were Catholic. Today, many of the cultural sites are linked to this history. There are many memorials dedicated to the Cathar martyrs and the Cathar castle ruins still stand tall. The many beautiful cathedrals, abbeys and churches in the region are worth visiting if you have an interest in architecture. There are numerous museums that showcase different themes and aspects of the region's history and culture.
