  • Fun location!

    "This apartment is located in an ideal location, just steps from all of the happenings, but at the same time tucked away on a small street and facing a courtyard, and therefore is quiet. Within a short walk are located several historic places such as Café de Flore and Les Deux Magots, Brasserie Lipp, and Place St. Germain des Prés. Plenty of shops and good restaurants are nearby and there's also a great weekly (organic) market on Blvd Raspail that takes place on Sunday mornings. Métro line 4 is literally just around the corner and line 10 is just a little further down the block- both convenient to access anywhere you want to go in the city. Rue St. André des Arts, Place St. Sulpice, and Luxembourg Garden are also within an easy walk and are not to be missed! And the Seine is just within a few minutes walk as well. The home was furnished with everything that I needed including a kitchen, coffee maker, adapters, hair dryer, washing machine, telephone, and good wifi connection. Communication with Xavier, the owner was prompt and he was very attentive to any needs or concerns. At times, maybe a little overly hands-on, as he liked to spontaneously drop by at least once a week to check if everything was okay. So there was a little lack of privacy in that regard since you always had to be sure and be presentable (dressed) in case he dropped in. Otherwise, it was a comfortable stay. Great location!"

  • Lovely Apartment

    "My girlfriend and I spent 4 nights at this lovely apartment and found it so convenient and so quiet. The street is the best and very lively but after walking through the large double street doors and through the courtyards, we found peace and quiet. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, and nice space for a one bedroom apartment. We would definitely recommend it to others."

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.
