  • Oasis in Arles

    "We recently spent 4 nights in this lovely apartment.It is ideally situated , within walking distance of many restaurants and shops but far enough off the beaten track to be restful and quiet.The apartment is clean and has all you could need for a comfortable stay .Our hostess, Estelle , is a dear lady who speaks good English and is very helpful...she even drove us to the station when we couldn't get a taxi! An ideal spot to break a hectic itinerary."

  • Quiet, trés Parisienne, fantastic home for life in the city

    "Practicalities 1st: well appointed, nicely decorated, comforting space on a quiet courtyard, 2d floor, with efficient elevator for when I'm just too tired to mount the stairs. The romance and the life it discloses: Sounds of children playing in the nearby schoolyard; the bells of the local church. But, since it doesn't front a street, quiet, peace. After a loooong day walking the city, the perfect sanctuary for the evening. Nearby is a twice-weekly open market for all the good food one could want. 1 block away a good-size modern grocery. Wine store closer yet. Cross the street early to an excellent bakery for fresh croissants & for baguettes towards evening for dinner. On major bus routes to central areas of the city."

  • A great apartment for our family of 4 to stay while in Paris!

    "We were very excited about staying in this apartment in Paris and it didn't disappoint. Our 2 daughters, my husband and myself loved the Paris vibe of the apartment and the original architectural details. The beds were comfy and the clothes drying rack was a lot of fun and quite practical to use. The wifi and washing machine were nice to have for our use. There were tourist books in the apartment that helped as we planned our days. We enjoyed getting up and heading to the recommended bakery on the corner-a particular favorite were the pistachio financiers. We were located very close to the metro and used it often. We walked to Sacre Coeur and restaurants and cafes nearby. We ended up arriving very late due to a train issue, but were able to get into the apartment and get settled. We stayed for 5 nights and greatly enjoyed our time in the Paris apartment and the surrounding neighborhood. We would stay again if we have the opportunity! Thank you!"

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.
