  • Very close to the old city. Lovely clean apartment

    "A beautifully clean and well maintained apartment with everything you require. Very close to the lovely old city....you can see the walled city from the lounge/kitchen windows. Well equipped with everything you require for a comfortable stay. An amazing abundance of excellent cafes/bars/restaurants to choose from in the old city. The listing description was accurate with regards location, layout, facilities etc. Ludovic provided excellent customer service. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to a friend or relative and we would hope to use it again in the future."

    "What a great little place to stay in Quillan, nicely decorated but retaining the charm of a typical French property. We had a very cosy week here. Very easy booking and arrangements. We came in Fiesta week with lots going on locally but it was also still quiet and relaxing, just a short distance away from the main square. Its a lovely part of France and you cannot go far wrong with this charming house and its lovely French neighbours. Nice spot from which to visit all the local sights from Carcassonne, Chateau les Renne to Leucate beach. Market in nearby Esperaza on a Sunday was great. Local rivers good for Kayaking and ski slopes cater for mountain bikes to out of season, not that we tried."

  • Exceptional quality and breathtaking views!

    "We stayed for a week with our two children (aged 3 and 6). The cottage is located in a historic vineyard (Daumas Gassac) in Aniane, a quaint medieval village about 40 mins north of Montpellier. This is an exceptional property with absolutely breathtaking views. We were greeted promptly and welcomed with several complementary bottles of the winery's Rose Frizant. The cottage has been fully renovated and includes every modern amenity - yet retains many of its original stonework which really gives it its charm. There were two bedrooms and two baths, bedding was of exceptional quality, and I loved the bathrobes! The cottage was tastefully appointed, impeccably clean, and very well equipped. The fresh water infinity pool was gorgeous (and heated), with incredible views of the adjacent vineyard and rolling hills of the region. There were many pool toys on hand, and the ledges at either side of the pool made it more accessible to our young children. Our hosts Samuel and Muffi were gracious and responsive to our every need. They provided many recommendations for bakeries, markets, and restaurants - and even took care of making reservations. We had children of similar ages who had many opportunities to play and swim together - my kids keep asking when we can see them again ! This property is great for families (esp younger children) as backyard contains swing set and trampoline. Don't miss a tour of the winery or the wine - it is excellent (I particularly loved the 2013 White). In short, an exceptional property with wonderful hosts. Their 5-star rating is well deserved. Looking forward to our opportunity to return! Thanks to you both, Samuel and Muffi - and hopefully our paths will cross again (in France or SF :)"

  • A* accommodation, great communication from owners

    "We'd echo the approval of previous reviewers and add... We've rented many times, but Linh & Guillaume's introduction to the apartment and the town is by far the best we've experienced - and their kindness as we left, in donating us a bucket for our daughter, who was embarking on a car journey after an night of illness, was much appreciated! This is the most immaculate (decor/maintenance/cleaning on arrival) place we've stayed. The location is ideal, if you plan to use public transport on holiday: the directions Linh & Guillaume will send you to get from the train station to the apartment are foolproof, it's 2 mins walk to/from a stop for the key No 1 tram line, one minute from a stand for Montpelliers's excellent bike-rental scheme, and the short walk to Place de la Comedie & the start of the Old Town is flat, pleasant and always feels safe. Also perfect if you have a car, since secure parking in the basement is available at no extra cost. Staying here you'll feel as though you are living in the town, rather than visiting as tourists. We enjoyed living in the centre of town so much we lost enthusiasm for using it as a base for sight-seeing - though Montpellier is excellently placed for such day trips. It would be worth googling 'Domaine d'O' (in a suburb to the north, accessible by blue (no 1) tram line) - an arts & cultural centre in grounds of chateau, with free concerts, in newly-constructed, outdoor, Roman-style theatre, throughout the summer. Great atmosphere - bring a picnic or buy from the lovely cafe on site. The Estivales festival, off Place de la Comedie, each Friday evening, which Linh & Guillaume will recommend, is also v worthwhile, if you're interested in local food and wine. All in all, this apartment is an ideal base for a family trip with young adults/older teenagers, as the town has a vibrant, young feel to it and its location means everyone can be free to do their own thing. Loved being able to make good coffee in the apartment too...! Thanks. Hope we can get back some time, either for the rugby or for more summer sun in your lovely city..."

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.
