  • A Real Gem

    "Great location 2 minutes from the Port and from Place Garibaldi. The apartment is on the third floor of a lovely building in a quiet side street and is full of character but somehow doesn't feel cramped or touristy. We've stayed in the old town before and found it airless, claustrophobic and impossible to get any sleep but this place is large, open and airy even in the 30 degree heat when we were there. It's got loads of charm and character but is bang up to date where it matters with a fantastic and enormous new bathroom, stupendous shower, great comfortable beds, wifi etc. The booking process via Tristan, and the welcome from Marilia, were both really efficient but everything is done with that fantastic personal touch which just makes you feel that these are very nice people who are actually bothered about you and want you to have a great time! Have to say we also had a fabulous meal just round the corner in the Port at Le Passe-plat for not much more than we paid in the old town for some bog standard pizza. Anyway, if you like huge, bland, anonymous apartment blocks with matching balconies then maybe this apartment isn't for you but we absolutely adored it and it will be our first port of call next time we're in Nice."

  • Luxurious comfort and convenience

    "My husband and I just returned from a week at this comfortable and well-maintained luxury apartment and were completely delighted. Our search for the perfect Paris apartment is over: we'll definitely stay again in the future! As others have commented, the king-size bed is incredibly comfortable. And the enormous bathroom is worthy of the Four Seasons. The kitchen is modern and more than adequate (I really appreciated the Nespresso machine), the living/dining area spacious and luxuriously furnished. Special touches included many English-language travel and design books and even a piano! There's strong fast WIFI throughout, and a large working desk in the living room. Nice to have the entry area with lots of hooks for coats, hats, and scarves. Very generous storage in the dressing room, but we would have appreciated a curtain in there for privacy. The bedroom draperies are a lovely heavy velvet that blocks out any street light, and all the large windows are completely soundproof. The elevator to the 3rd floor (4th floor American) was much appreciated but not suitable for wheelchairs as it's small and accessed by a few stairs. If you adore the Left Bank, you won't find a better location, directly across the street from the church Saint Germain des Prés; two metro stations are within a block. Louis Vuitton is downstairs, Monoprix grocery store a half-block away, a good wine shop caddy-corner, Ladurée patisserie and Nespresso shops within two blocks, and the magnificent Grand Epicerie gourmet shop of Bon Marché at two metro stops. You'll even find a rolling grocery cart in the dressing room to bring back your provisions! Many home-design and fashion boutiques and art galleries fill the surrounding blocks, as well as good restaurants and cafés. The Louvre and d'Orsay museums are within walking distance, as are the Tuileries and Luxembourg Gardens. In other words, the neighborhood is convenient, safe, charming, and culturally rich. Ann was a delight to work with and has many fine recommendations for dining, shopping, and museums. An added convenience was paying for the apartment by credit card. Thank you, Ann, and à bientôt!"

  • We love this apartment, it feels like home.

    "We have become so comfortable with Jennifer's St Mande apartment that we refer to it as the apartment. I think it is our fifth stay. Such a comfort to return to our favorite city knowing that we can settle in and pick up where we left off last visit . The apartment is easy to access, on the prime subway line for tourist areas, has a bus at the door making for ease of travel in Paris . The neighborhood and the neighbouring Vincennes have all you could possibly need. Local restaurants are great, with Le Ruisseau, just around the corner, our favorite. "Le notre"is a block away if you are looking for a cooking school. We consider this apt. " a find". The apartment itself is modest, always freshly cleaned, perfectly adequate for a month long stay."

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.
