  • What could be better?

    "The location of this apartment is absolutely the best! One block from the Seine with a view of rooftops and the river..what could be better? the apartment is on the 6th floor..very top. It is full of light with a small balcony opening off of each room. It is fully equipped and very comfortable. Arrangements were easily made. the owner is quick to respond and very helpful with any questions asked. The manager who met us on site was friendly and helpful as well. She explained everything, gave us lots of good information for our 2 week stay and her phone number in case of any problems(which we did not have!) The location is so perfect for walking any where in Paris and yet the street and neighborhood is quiet and relaxed. since the street on that block is one way..there really isn't much traffic noise at all. when the windows are closed, it is very quiet. the neighborhood is great..many good small restaurants and a GREAT boulangerie downstairs. Grocery store,Franprix, is just a block away. We LOVED it an would go again if we could. it was a perfect place to stay in Paris."

  • Wonderful!

    "Such great hosts and so very nice! They were very helpful with directions, recommendations, etc. Their home is close to some beautiful areas to see in France. Very convenient. At night I was pretty tired from all the sight seeing and I had a good nights sleep in a very comfortable bed. They told me it would be very quiet at night there and it was. It was one of the quietest places an night I've ever been to. Even though it was partly cloudy the nights I was there, I could still see the stars at night. I was told the stars at night there are stunning when it's a clear night. Highly recommended!"

  • Quiet villa

    "The villa apartment in Cannes was the perfect spot for my wife and myself when we visited Italy, the South of France and portugal. It was located centrally for all we wanted to see around the Cote D'Azur. Only a short drive from the Nice International Airport via the motorway. The villa is situated in a lovely gated residential parc in the best area of Cannes. It was very private and quiet. The owner was very helpful to us and showed us special places in Cannes that we would not have found on our own. We are happy to recommend this villa to our family and friends."

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.
