  • Great venue for a family gathering

    "Our extended family spent a delightful week at this property, which was spacious and clean. We found the house convenient to walk into Avignon or take the bus. Nearby (within walking distance) were a boulangerie, patisserie, fromagerie, pharmacy and market for fruits and vegetables. We enjoyed the pool and the quiet neighborhood. The owner spent a great deal of time explaining various features and applliances in the house and assisted my daughter in finding a good route for running. If you use GPS to find the property, be sure to input Villeneuve and not Avignon, as we had some difficulty finding the address. Overall, a great home away from home."

  • Exceptional service and location

    "The apartment was great for our family and 2 young daughters who enjoyed the space. It is in walking distance from Notre Dame and Centre Pompidou and is situated in a lovely neighborhood. The corner cafe - Cafe Charlot - was exceptional. Louis the property manager was exceptional in helping us prepare for and enjoy a wonderful stay in Paris. We traded numerous emails that he patiently answered regarding planning our trip. Louis arranged transportation, a private tour of Versailles where we cut the long line and bought museum passes for us as well as provided numerous restaurant recommendations. He provided better service than we've experienced from a 5-star hotel concierge. We recommend the apartment and Louis."

  • C'est magnifique! Wonderful place to stay

    "We cannot say enough about the beautiful stone house. My family and friends stayed for two weeks. When we arrived it was spotlessly clean (thanks, Christine!) -- and there was plenty of room -- inside and out -- for all of us. We used the laundry, cooked fabulous meals, and enjoyed the pool. This is a perfect place for a large group. Bruno was responsive and helpful and kind. We will be back. Thank you."

  • Perfect location and Perfect Size!

    "We have had a great experience in this apartment during our 4 night stay in Paris! It is wonderfully located near the metro stop and has little shops that provide for our necessities. There is a great little crepe place down at the corner where we got creeps to go which we're perfect. The apartment was VERY clean and looks out over a cute neighborhood. A beautiful courtyard welcomes you when you walk in and then a tiny, but reliable, elevator brings you up to the apartment which is on the 6th floor. It had all we wanted and needed and we really appreciated free phone and the free wifi. I highly recommend this apartment for fun stay in Paris!"

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.
