  • Très beau séjour

    "Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans cet appartement. Il est très bien situé par rapport à la cité médiévale : on y accède en cinq minutes à pied pour la visiter en journée et le soir pour y déambuler ou y passer une agréable soirée dans un des restaurants.! On aperçoit même les remparts depuis les fenêtres du salon. Le parking devant la maison est un plus incontestable quand les places sont occupées par les voitures des touristes d'un jour. En ce qui concerne l'aménagement de l'appartement, son confort est à la hauteur de nos attentes. Les chambres donnent sur la terrasse et par conséquent le bruit éventuel de la rue ne trouble pas le sommeil. Quel confort également d'avoir à disposition le linge de maison ! Le propriétaire est accessible et a pu répondre à toutes nos questions. Nous consellons cette location à une famille de 4 personnes mais pas avec des enfants trop jeunes étant donné l'escalier qui donne directement sur les pièces de vie."

  • A luxurious, well-appointed apartment

    "My husband and I were extremely pleased with our choice of the apartment, A Flor de Mar, for our stay in Collioure. When you enter the apartment you are struck by the sun-filled rooms, and the stunning views overlooking Collioure and the Mediterranean. The owner has taken great care in stylishly furnishing the apartment, as well as providing you with lovely dishes and every kitchen gadget imaginable. She was also exceptional in responding to any questions we had about our booking and in providing detailed directions to the apartment. The owner's manager greets you warmly upon arrival and takes great care in providing you with all the necessary information, as well as highlights of this beautiful coastal region. The apartment is ideally located as it is within walking distance of Collioure and Port Vendres. We enjoyed walking to town on market days and returning with delicious, fresh food for our lunch. The nearest swimming beach is also just steps away below the apartment. We know that you will be as delighted as we were with this beautiful, welcoming apartment, and with the owner's exceptional service. We would highly recommend A Flor de Mar as a base for exploring this area of France."

  • A fabulous haven for family and friends to get lost and then find themselves

    "Conveniently located, with easy access to 100's of Provence's many attractions yet perfectly suited for quiet time and hiding away. Our family of 6 adult and late teens gathered for a family retreat and took full advantage of everything La Grange and Vers-Pont-du-Gard had to offer as we arranged a small, quiet family marriage is this beautiful villa and quaint community. The accommodations exceeded all expectations and Katherine prepared and provided total freedom to enjoy all that Provence had to offer in sites, attractions, foods and beverages. The rooms provided privacy and accommodated the likes and wants of teenagers (severe critics) as well as discerning adults. The common areas were comfortable, eclectic and appealing to both traditional and artistic tastes. Furnished with flair and body comfort in mind. The kitchen offered a large comfortable communal setting to start the day while the more formal dining room with 2-storey ceilings was perfect for sharing the experiences of the day over great food and wine. We couldn't have been more pleased and can't wait to return."

  • Great Location, Home from Home

    "This was an ideal holiday at Mas de Tarnie - such a beautiful house in a beautiful setting. It is very well equipped and comfortable, with splendid views. (And we were lucky enough to have wonderful hot weather.) We are a family of 11, ranging in age from Grandma down to a three-year-old, and we all loved it. There's a good supermarket at Jacou, not far away. And from Jacou you can take a tram into the heart of Montpellier - lovely town, historic and sophisticated at the same time. The three teenage boys and one of the dads enjoyed a tour on Segways through the old district. Some of us sat outside a café in the Place de la Comédie and watched the musicians and acrobats, while our little ones found an imaginative playground quite near. Then all 11 of us piled into a little tourist "train" and had a tour of the town. We had a day in Nîmes, looking for ancient Romans. And were transported back to the Middle Ages at picturesque St. Guilhem le Désert. The children loved the aquarium at Odysseum, accessible by tram from Montpellier, followed by lunch at the Pirate Café nearby (complete with real pirates, a pirate ship and a battle....) A week wasn't long enough. Thank you Vincent, for welcoming us and being so helpful, and thank you Natalie and Paul for keeping the place so clean and attractive. Elizabeth and Family (Brighton)."

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.
