  • Hoping to Return!

    "My husband and I spent a month at this wonderful house. We had friends visit us while we were there and the layout worked well for us. The beds were very comfortable. We loved the courtyard for apres cycling drinks and appys and evening meals. Most meals we cooked at home with ingredients from the local markets. We have wonderful memories of bbq dinners and drinks with friends. We also had a couple dinners at La Petite L'histoire a wonderful small restaurant in the closest village of La Chene. The terrace overlooking the countryside is perfect for morning coffee. I miss it terribly! We had thought we wanted to rent a house in a village but after staying out in the country found that we loved it. We cycled almost everyday to a new destination. It was very centrally located to visit all the hilltop villages and superb cycling for all levels. The ambiance of the house is wonderful. Rustic, Provencal, creative. Some evenings were cool and the kitchen fire was wonderful for warmth and character. Internet was phenomenal. It worked on the terrace, in the courtyard, in the bedrooms and with multiple devices. Marine was very helpful with all questions we had and delivering our lost luggage twice! She met us at a nearby location to take us to the house. The house was clean and well-equipped. We would definitely recommend a stay here. And hope we can return :)"

    "Très jolie propriété située à la limite de Bayeux et des plages (7 klm). Le lieu est apaisant, le parc joliment paysagé. . Les locations disposent de toutes les commodités et sont décorées avec goût. Toutes sont d'une propreté exemplaire, grâce à Stéphanie, la fée du logis.. Les hôtes sont très à l'écoute et font tout pour que le séjour des occupants se déroule du mieux possible. Très humains, et d'une belle cordialité, ils rendent le séjour des plus agréables. .Plus qu'une chose à faire...LOUER !...je n'ai pas d'intérêt dans l 'affaire...M D R . Yves de Tours."

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.
