  • Exceeded Expectations !

    "Having seen the gorgeous pictures advertising this property, we expected quite a lot, but the reality when we saw the house and garden, exceeded even our expectations and in truth as good as the photos advertising the property are they don't begin to do this lovely house justice. On arrival, we received a really warm welcome from the owner who showed us around the house and explained where all the local amenities were. The village of Caunes-Minervois is stunning and between the village amenities and the house our every need was catered for. We made several trips whilst we were here, Carcasonne, Minerve and Sete and after a long day sightseeing, it was a pleasure to return to Caunes and this lovely house each evening.. We were here for a week and my only complaint is that it was not nearly long enough......................................."

  • A wonderful place to stay

    "A beautiful, spacious townhouse which is just as fabulous as it looks in the photos - you will not be disappointed! Bertrand is the perfect host, friendly & genuine & helpful without being intrusive. He even kindly drove us back to the airport. The house itself was an absolute pleasure to stay in, the bedrooms were all beautifully arranged, and very comfortable with plenty of storage. Everything you could need for your holiday was included, including a washing machine & dryer in the laundry room. The roof terrace has fabulous views of the Castle which is only a short walk away. The pool and garden are the piece de resistance, so peaceful & beautiful that we really didn't want to leave! We would highly recommend this wonderful place & look forward to returning ourselves for longer next year."

  • I would revisit here and Uzes in a heartbeat!

    "June 2014 This is a well appointed and renovated easy to live in villa just a gentle walk in to the charming village. The first morning I opened the front door to slip out for a run and the sky was dotted with hot air balloons. Temperatures in the thirties but the house was cool and the pool long enough to swim in to cool down. Good mattresses too..so important! Turn left to be in the countryside , turn right to go to the village.I think the rental cycle should be Friday to Friday as we missed the highly regarded market both days as we were arriving and leaving."

  • Wunderbares Ferienhaus in einer grandiosen Umgebun

    "Das Ferienhaus ist wunderbar. Es ist sehr groß und geräumig. Im Rahmen einer Studienreise mieteten wir das Haus. Es ist ideal zum Arbeiten für Studierende. Es bietet sehr viele Plätze zum Zeichnen und Arbeiten als auch für Gespräche und Diskussionen. Weiter hat es sehr viele Rückzugsorte zum Erholen und Entspannen. Der Ort St. Jean de Minvervois ist sehr authentisch. Das Essen in der L'Auberge de l'Ecole ist sehr lecker und zu empfehlen. Der Muscat-Wein ist ebenso lecker und ein "Muss" für jeden Gast. Wir hatten eine wunderbare Woche mit einem traumhaften Wetter! Der Kontakt mit Luc (dem Besitzer des Hauses) war hervorragend. Alles hat reibungslos geklappt. Vielen Dank für den schönen Aufenthalt!"

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.
