  • Home Away From Home in Bonnieux

    "This beautiful home in Bonnieux is perfect in every sense. It is spacious (4 levels), warm, cosy and central to Bonnieux and the rest of Provence. The owner's communication was excellent and everything was as shown, and as expected. The views from the roof top terrace and bedroom are spectacular. Plenty of good restaurants nearby and bakeries etc. Housebook had so much information in it; also lots of maps, books on Provence. Highly recommended."

  • Ideal In Every Way

    "My wife and I rented this wonderful apartment from September 22, 2014 to October 19. Everything about the apartment and its great location in the 7th Arrond, are so attractive that we plan to rent the apartment again from mid-April 2015 to mid-May. As regular visitors to Paris, we have rented other apartments in the past and stayed at a number of hotels on both the Left Bank and Right Bank. If you are going to spend more than a few days in Paris, this apartment is the ideal place to stay."

  • Great apartment, location, and manager

    "This apartment was a great place to stay for our large extended family of 6 adults and 4 children, and we were delighted at the super location. The metro was close; and from the apartment we could walk to many favorite attractions like Notre Dame, the Seine, the Pantheon, and Luxembourg Gardens, not to mention the Jardin des Plantes literally across the street! We had fresh baguettes, meringues, and chocolate croissants from the bakery down about a block or so, and cheeses, wine and fresh vegetables from one of several small shops nearby. It had a great neighborhood feel to it. The apartment itself was spacious and comfortable, and we especially enjoyed the nice sized living room with the large dining table. The apartment was cozy and warm despite very cold weather; the wifi worked beautifully, and the free telephone was a plus. The bedrooms were also a good size, and the beds were very comfortable. From recent pictures, it looks like several areas have been redone since our earlier stay there...carpeting, fresh paint, halls cleared and best of all.... a new beautiful tiled shower and tiled bathroom floor! We will have to make another visit soon to enjoy all the new amenities! Since our stay was between Christmas and New Year’s, Claire and Nicolas were away, but we were greeted nicely by the cleaning lady who explained everything completely and didn’t laugh at my oddly phrased questions in bad French. I was sad not to meet Nicolas, because I have to say that he was the most accommodating and communicative home away manager I have ever encountered. He answered every inquiry immediately, with clarity and detail; and he went above and beyond when we inquired about parking arrangements for a car a family member brought, and a taxi to the airport for our departure. He not only gave us contact info for a reasonable limo service, but coordinated all the emails and arrangements. We loved the area, the apartment, and the location, and would highly recommend it."

  • Excellent Location

    "My family and I really enjoyed this flat during the 2014 holiday season. With two metro stops right outside the door, who could ask for more. The flat was perfect for 5 adults, however the third bedroom is very small, definitely should be used by a small child. Great restaurants within walking distance, actually anything you would want was within walking distance. Overall great experience, would definitely go back. Thank you Joel Noel."

Midi-Pyrenees Travel Tips

What to Expect near Your Midi-Pyrenees Vacation Rentals

The beautiful Midi-Pyrenees is set in the heart of southwest France and includes the cities of Toulouse, Foix, Cahors and Albi among many others. Its diverse, sparsely populated landscape, from the Tarn Gorges to the wooded hills of the Dordogne Valley, offer something for every visitor to enjoy. Quiet waterways for fishing, boating and walking, rugged mountain peaks, winter sports on the higher slopes and the religious center of pilgrimage at Lourdes are just some of the attractions. The area even has its own UNESCO World Heritage Site at the Cirque du Gavarnie. Small farms, dry stone walls and old shepherds’ huts are visible reminders of the former inhabitants who made their living from this land.

The Benefits of Midi-Pyrenees Accommodations

Most visitors to the area of the Midi-Pyrenees are looking for a quiet escape from busy city life, and Midi-Pyrenees villas offer just that. With no routines, no check-out times and no maids knocking on the door, it is the perfect answer for a relaxed, do-as-you-please vacation. Families find a spacious Midi-Pyrenees accommodation perfect for spreading out and doing their own thing. With well-appointed kitchens and dining areas, it is very easy to save money and eat well by shopping for fresh produce locally. Surrounded by unspoiled scenery and wildlife, staying in Midi-Pyrenees accommodations make good sense all round.

Places to Visit from Your Midi-Pyrenees Vacation Rentals

Toulouse is the capital of the Midi-Pyrenees area and dates back to pre-Christian times as the Gallic city of Tolosa. It has some of the most interesting 16th- and 17th-century Renaissance architecture in France, including the building which housed the Académie des Jeux Floraux in 1323 as well as the Bemberg Foundation which has a superb art collection spanning five centuries. The 18th-century town hall is also worth a visit.

Those who prefer more outdoor natural pursuits will prefer the Albi region, with its naturally formed Tarn River Gorges. It is ideal for walking and climbing as well as kayaking. Auch has a network of narrow streets just waiting to be discovered and the magnificent Cathedral of Sainte-Marie has some gorgeous stained glass windows in its classical façade. Older still are the ruins of the Ducal Castle at Foix which dates back to medieval times.

The Weather Around Midi-Pyrenees Villas

The Midi-Pyrenees region boasts around 2,000 hours of sunshine per year, making it one of the sunniest spots to stay in France. Throughout the summer, temperatures frequently exceed 25 C (77 F). The warm temperatures linger into October when a late “Indian summer” can usually be enjoyed. Winters are short and fairly mild, although the high peaks of the Pyrenees get plenty of snow which lasts into April. Spring is a popular time for visitors who enjoy hiking in the area. The fruit trees around the Tarn and Garonne districts are laden with showy blossoms.

Getting to Your Midi-Pyrenees Vacation Rentals

The main airports for those wishing to fly to their midi-Pyrenees accommodations are the Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrenees Airport, the Toulouse-Blagnac Airport and the Rodez-Marcillac Airport. The excellent French rail network is one of the best ways to travel around France and most towns are connected by TGV or TER regional express trains. Driving around the French countryside is easy but check the rules of the road as they do differ from other countries. For example, carrying reflective jackets is now compulsory and the use of radar-detectors is illegal, unlike in other countries.

Things to Do Around Your Midi-Pyrenees Accommodations

Those who appreciate art will enjoy visiting Marciac, Saint-Cirq-Lapopie and Cordes sur Ciel, all popular with painters, sculptors and musicians. The magnificent Pyrenees National Park offers pine forests and waterfalls with high-altitude lakes such as the Cirque du Gavarnie. Unique experiences can be found at the impressive viaducts of Pic du Midi and Millau. The hieroglyphs of Figeac are all that remains of a culture going back thousands of years.
