  • Wonderful apartment in the 10th!

    "My family and I had the great fortune to stay at Helene's fabulous apartment last month. I agree with all of the positive, 5-star reviews that are on this listing, all of which were very helpful in making our decision to stay here. It was the perfect location for our family of 5 -- the apartment was very spacious and beautifully decorated, we had everything we needed (we felt like guests in a friend's home), and we loved looking out of the large windows to view the canal below (and watching all of the interesting people going about their day). Helene was also extremely helpful to us before we rented, answering any question we had, and we were ESPECIALLY grateful for her help when one of the members of our family needed a doctor because of an allergic reaction to some food she ate - I called Helene in a bit of a panic looking for advice and she guided me to her resource book that she created for her guests (with all of the information you will need for help, medical assistance, travel tips, restaurants, etc.) and a doctor was able to come to the apartment within 45 minutes! The area is part of an active community and, as has been written, there is some noise from the street, but I personally think that adds to the apartment's charm and personality - I loved that part! There are also many restaurants in the area, with very nice restaurant in our building that was a hangout and a personal favorite of ours. The Metro is a 5 minute walk away, which was also a huge plus for us. Our trip to Paris will be a memory that our family will never forget, and being able to stay at Helene's beautiful apartment will always be a special part of that memory. We will definitely stay here again!"

  • Absolutely Amazing Apartment

    "This apartment is the best one we have ever stayed in. The location is perfect. You can walk to anywhere from there. The views are spectacular. You can see all of Paris from the balconies. The apartment is well equipped and has everything you could want. It is actually so much bigger than it looks in the pictures. We enjoyed staying here and Eric was so accommodating. Do not hesitate to book this place...it is well worth it. Thanks Eric for letting us use your apartment."

  • Lovely Gem

    "My husband and I spent two weeks in Paris at Alix's apartment. It could not have been more perfect. We only used the metro a couple of times as we were within walking distance to everything. The apartment had everything we needed. We enjoyed cooking in the evenings after shopping at the local butchers and markets. Oh how I miss those lovely roast chickens! I would recommend a stay in the Marais. It is a very special place!"

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.
