  • Sacre Coeur Apartment

    "We stayed here six nights in August. I think the price was fair because the apartment wasn't as big as it appeared in the pictures. Luckily we had the 2nd bedroom for our teenaged son because we would have been in each other's laps otherwise! It's ironic that the heading for this listing says "Calm" because this was the noisiest place I've ever stayed in my life! The apartment's windows look out at the trams that run to Sacre Coeur, which are loud and are open late into the evening. There must be a park nearby because every single night there was a concert going on. Sounded like the same group each night and if you absolutely love "Free Fallin" by Tom Petty sung off key 5+ times a night then you're in for a treat! Once the concert ended we listened to drunk people outside the window, yelling into the early morning hours. (One night it was a young man who was upset about something and spent several hours sobbing and lamenting while his friends tried to talk to him. Unfortunately I couldn't understand what he was saying!) Several nights AFTER the drunks went home we listened to what sounded like Electronica being played from inside the building. Needless to say we got little sleep. What's funny is when I read the check-in instructions at home before we left, I made sure my son and husband knew about their noise policy. It goes on for over a page about using quiet voices in the apartment, not letting your luggage bang on anything, taking off your shoes, moving things softly, even keeping young kids from jumping and running around in the apartment. I can only figure they want it so quiet inside so you're able to hear everything going on outside your window clearly. Must be Tom Petty fans! My suggestion to any Americans staying here is to read the check-in instructions closely and maybe copy them over into bullet points. It's not written by someone who speaks English and was really confusing! After travelling 15+ hours we spent several more hours trying to figure out how to get the key. My poor husband traipsed around Paris in the dark before finally enlisting our teenaged son's help while I stood guard over the bags in the rain. The view from this apartment was incredible and it did have some charm. The washing machine (no dryer) was a huge help and the kitchen was fairly well stocked. I would definitely recommend this apartment to people who don't mind noise and are heavy sleepers!!"

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.
