  • family break

    "Thank you John for sharing your home with us during a delightfully peaceful get away from it all break. Steeped in history this was a perfect home from home set on the river bank a short walk from the village centre. Don't expect to rush anywhere just sit back relax and enjoy watching the world go by."

  • très bon séjour ! !

    "La maison était semblable à la description, très propre et bien entretenue. Nous l'avions choisit pour son caractère ancien et sa piscine privée. Nous y avons passé de très agréables vacances en famille (2adultes, 4enfants). Il y a de nombreux villages à visiter dans la région, des marchés où nous avons pris de la confiture maison, du foie gras, des noix... à recommander Marie-Laure, Pascal et les enfants"

  • Great apartment

    "Hi traveler. We spent 3 nights in this lovely apartment recently. We loved it and would return. As per other comments, the 1 1/2 story climb may not be for a person with stair issues but we were helped with our luggage so that made it easier. Great location in St Germain. 2 subway lines nearby. Walk to Notre Dame, New Pont (bridge). Plenty of restaurants on the street or nearby. Best Italian food I ever had was on this street. Groceries 10 minute walk. Pastries 2 minutes. Provided with Nespresso coffee Pods and bread .. so nice. also mentioned .. noisy talkers on street in evening but close the window and you will be OK. Safe neighbourhood. Great Bed, TV, shower, stove and supplies to cook. Price was right as far as I am concerned. Sleeps 4 with couch, I believe, so kids would not be an issue. Enjoy the "hood""

  • We had a fabulous time!

    "The apartment was exactly as advertised and Paula went above and beyond to make sure that we knew about the neighbourhood and where to shop and how to get around. The area is great and has a lot of good shopping within an easy stroll. Also access to the main attractions in Paris are available by a short walk to the local subway station or by a bus just down the street. All of this contributed to us having a fabulous time in Paris that we will never forget. Thanks Paula for everything."

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.
